Wilhelm Reich, a prophet of the sexual revolution and a controversial figure in the annals of psychiatry, is at the center of Makavejev’s provocative, vigorous, rigorous film, which combines material on patients using Reich’s orgone accumulator therapy and the story of a Yugoslavian woman infatuated with a Russian ice skater, a diabolically dialectical structure that collides soft Western-style sexual liberation with hard USSR-style politics.
