CGiii Comment

Half-documentary about Wilhelm Reich...who???

A communist sexologist who died in 1957.

Genital embrace, orgone energy theory and 4,000 orgasms in a lifetime. You have to see it to believe it - hysterically funny, tongue-in-cheek, disturbing and informative.

It is also about the strained relations between the USSR and Yugoslavia - bordering on surreal genius.

Warhol/Morrissey should have watched this before making their crap.

'Politics is for those whose orgasm is incomplete!'

Simply and weirdly superb. It is too long though.

The(ir) Blurb...

A dense film that cuts up footage of a primary plot of two young Yugoslavian girls, one a politico and the other a sexpot, and an affair with a visiting Russian skater. Mixing metaphors of Russia's relationship with Yugoslavia, intercut with footage and interviews with Wilhelm Reich and Al Goldstein of Screw magazine. The film applies Reich's theories of Orgone energy and analogies of Stalinism as a form of Freudian sexual repression. Also known as W.R. The Mysteries of the Organism in English subtitled version. Was banned in Yugoslavia shortly after it was made.
