Dusan Makavejev’s Sweet Movie comes to Criterion DVD

Mike Powell


Schweeet! (you saw that joke coming, but…) It is sweet that DuĊĦan Makavejev’s 1974 cult classic has infiltrated the somewhat taught sieve of great films that is the Criterion Collection of DVDs. It’s a sexually unabashed film that no doubt the Swedish national socialists (Swedish national socialists?) who recently smashed an Andres Serrano exhibit would love to get their nasty hands on (but that’s another story). Mike Powell reviews.
