Dušan Makavejev's Sweet Movie is full of REVOLUTION, SHOCK & EXCITEMENT; shot in France, West Germany and Canada it is a powerful look into the underground cinema movement of Eastern Europe. Sweet Movie brilliantly critiques the global industrial war machine intermingling Nazi footage (trigger warning) and concepts of violence, sex and freedom all under the guise of cauldron upon cauldrons of chocolate sauce. A forward-thinking and Yugoslavian film that is making fun of communism, religious worship and the outrageous and constant commodification and objectification of women.
