Subversive and moving, his films remain touchstones for transcultural and political cinema. Matching the intensity of the films, Lorraine Mortimer takes a radically interdisciplinary approach in this first book-length critical analysis of Makavejevs work.Studies in contrasts, Makavejevs films combine documentary and fiction, tragedy and comedy. Mortimer examines seven of his films made between 1965 and 1994-including Montenegro (1981), Sweet Movie (1974), and WR: Mysteries of the Organism (1971)-looking at them historically, politically, and aesthetically and highlighting their implications for the contemporary world.Both Makavejevs films and Mortimers scrutiny of them are haunted by the specter of apocalyptic revolutionary movements that sacrifice people and the planet in the name of ideologies and idealisms.

Mortimer argues that the aesthetic dimension is vital to our conception of old and new tribalisms and, ultimately, our understanding of being in the world.
