Dusan Makavejev’s film is neither for the squeamish nor the puritanical. It’s a wild, often hilarious, often bizarre conflagration of politics, sex, surreal humor, guerilla theater, and a touch of documentary. The WR of the title is Wilhelm Reich, a psychiatrist from Vienna who grew progressively radical in thought and action. His “orgone box” was designed to release sexual energy and heal all manner of ailments and diseases. But that’s just the start of this uninhibited film. If you remember The Fugs, there’s even a sequence with Tuli Kupferberg.
