WR: MYSTERIES OF THE ORGANISM

The wild theories of renegade American sexologist Wilhelm Reich (WR), proponent of “orgone energy,” are the basis for this funny, sexy, sardonic collage film—a cinematic pop-art masterpiece about the relationship between sex, power politics, and freedom. The baseline story is a romance between a liberated Yugoslavian woman and a repressed Russian ice skater, but cutaways to a 1946 Stalinist propaganda movie and to documentary footage of 1960s America subvert and amplify the narrative. No one under 18 admitted! Subtitles. 85 min.
