Sweet Movie DVD (Criterion) (NTSC Region 1)

There is no film in the world quite like Dusan Makavejev`s revolutionary,
offensive and gleefully joyous SWEET MOVIE that ranks with the works of Arrabal, Jodorowsky and early Matsumoto in the
realm of international cinematic weirdness

Description

Pushing his themes of sexual liberation to their boiling point, Yugoslavian art-house provocateur Dušan Makavejev followed his international sensation WR: Mysteries of the Organism with this full-throated shriek in the face of bourgeois complacency and movie watching. Sweet Movie tackles the limits of personal and political freedom with kaleidoscopic feverishness, shuttling viewers from a gynecological beauty pageant to a grotesque food orgy with scatological, taboo-shattering glee. With its lewd abandon and sketch-comedy perversity, Sweet Movie became both a cult staple and exemplar of the envelope pushing of 1970s cinema.
