WR The Mysteries of the Organism is a unique blend of fact and fiction, and Makavejevs landmark film. It deftly juxtaposes the story of the sexual encounter between the beautiful, liberated Milena and a repressed Soviet figure-skating champion with an exploration of the life and theories of psychoanalyst Wilhelm Reich. The WR in the films title stands for either Wilhelm Reich or World Revolution. Makavejev describes it as «a black comedy, political circus, a fantasy on the fascism and communism of human bodies, the political life of human genitals, a proclamation of the pornographic essence of any system of authority and power over others. If you watch for more than five minutes, you become my accomplice.»
