Pushing his themes of sexual liberation to their boiling point, Yugoslavian art-house provocateur Dusan 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 abandonand sketch-comedy perversity, Sweet Movie became both a cult staple and an exemplar of the envelope pushing of 1970s cinema.
Director Makavejev's controversial SWEET MOVIE actually contains two cult-classic comedic stories. In the first story, Miss World Virginity marries wealthy industrialist Mr. Kapital who has her sterilized, rather than consummating their marriage. She runs off, has an affair and ends up in a commune. In the second story a survivor of the revolution has a sexual encounter with a sailor which ends in his murder in a vat of sugar.
