Pinhole Movie Reviews

WR: The Mysteries of the Organism / W.R. – Мистерије организма by tincolor




I’m really not sure how to even describe this movie. It’s half documentary, half narrative and all crazy. Wikipedia says that in this film, director Dušan Makavejev “…explores the relationship between communist politics and sexuality, as well as exploring the life and work of Wilhelm Reich.” So there’s THAT! I’m not sure if this movie was actually enjoyable, but it did remind on some vague way of The Book of Laughter and Forgetting by Milan Kundera, if you’re into that. If you’re currently enrolled in film school, this movie is worth checking out, but otherwise, I’d say it’s barely watchable.

Set in a repressive Prussian all-girls boarding school, this tale of stifled lesbian love is pretty fun to watch.  It could be called “camp” because of the subject matter and the fact that it was made in the 50’s, but it’s really an effective, well crafted movie.  A Technicolor remake of the 1931 cult film of the same name, which you can watch on youtube (though apparently no one knows exactly how much the Nazis censored from the original.)  An enthusiastic Worth checking out.

Pina Bausch was a choreographer working in Germany who believed that some things are better expressed through dance. I’m slightly embarrassed to say that this is the first movie that has ever made me cry while at the movie theatre. It is also the first movie I’ve seen in 3D that convinced me that 3D isn’t just a gimmick. Absolutely worth checking out.

Professional half-ass Zinos has a lot of problems; his restaurant isn’t making money, his girlfriend moved to China and his back is killing him. But don’t worry, it will all wrap up nicely by the end. It’s like a funnier, more believable Empire Records Oh yeah, and it’s set in Germany. Worth watching.
