Editorial Reviews

There's never been another filmmaker quite like Dusan Makavejev. Even in the 1960s, when all of cinema's steadfast rules seemed to be breaking down and artists such as Godard, Cassavetes, and Marker were dissolving the boundaries between fiction and documentary, Yugoslavia's Makavejev stood alone. His films about political and sexual liberation were revolutionary, raucous, and ribald. Across these, his wild, collagelike first three films, Makavejev investigateswith a tonic mix of earnestness and whimsylove, death and work, the legacy of war and the absurdity of daily life in a Communist state, criminology and hypnosis, strudels and strongmen.

Growing up, I really loved (and still do) reading about foreign cinema and its great directors. One of the greatest longings for me was to see many types of films in the world, but they just weren't accessible, especially in the late 70s and 80s. One of these directors was Dusan Makavejev. Because of Tito, Soviet Russia, and how the good ol' USA felt about showing movies made in socialist countries, one could only READ about them and not see them, unless one was lucky enough to go to a film festival in a big city, or even abroad.

I had seen "Sweet Movie" and "WR: Mysteries of the Orga(ni)sm" (yes, the title was changed to "Organism"), because they were those "taboo movies" that mommy and daddy would not let you see (like "A Clockwork Orange," for example). I also liked "The Coca-Cola Kid" in the 80s.

A couple of years ago, I decided to write a paper and do a presentation on Makavejev's work, and, VOILA, Criterion had a box set that I didn't even know existed! I was able to do a decent analysis which discussed his early works and their pertinence to Tito's Yugoslavia.

"Man is Not a Bird" is a great early work about Socialist Industrial Yugoslavia, with sex, relationships, and Ludwig von thrown together.

"Love Affair..." I consider his best work - about a rat exterminator and his romantic urges.

"Innocence Unprotected" is a GREAT documentary about the acrobat Dragoljub Aleksic and tells his story, which is eerily juxtaposed with that of good ol' Tito - showing how people place legendary status upon people that have dubious beginnings and lives.

WR: Mysteries of the Organism may be the quintessential Makavejev movie according to the movie scholars, but I prefer these three movies instead. They are sad, funny, rude and bittersweet like the life itself. According to Dave Kehr "these movies are like ghostly dispatches from a long vanished country". I could not agree more. Buy this box set, for the price it is the bargain of the year.
