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.Written by

Although this film was passed uncut for UK cinemas upon its original release, the 1995 Connoisseur Video release used an edited print which was shown on Channel 4 as part of a 1991 censorship season. This TV version used psychedelic computer generated masking techniques to hide some of the more explicit details, including genuine sex during the opening Soviet sex education film, the images on the wall paintings showing people masturbating, and all shots of Jim Buckley's penis as a plaster cast is made of it (which was obscured by digitally animated stars).

I saw this originally at a showing at the British Film Institute years ago and it blew my mind. Every film student should see it. A subversive mix of politics and sex, it shows just how boring and middle class Monty Python, the Farrelly Brothers, et al really are. A non sequitur to the 9th degree, it shows the power that cinema can have on an audience. Considering the age of this film, it is incredible how outrageous it is. Once you've seen it, you will never forget it. It is truly a land mark film in the realm of the surreal. A must viewing for everyone.
