Read First, then Watch, 26 April 2006
Author: theintriguing from United States

I loved the playfulness within the context of an enactment of a man's ideas. So to 'get' the film fully, perhaps one may want to read one or more of Reich's books. I have read (and enjoyed) Mass Psychology of Fascism. Good luck on your own interpretations and conclusions. The film really is brilliant in many ways. In the times in which we live it is interesting to look at a piece made decades ago that can and does speak to the possibility of a different way of life. In other words, this picture presents something bigger and more meaningful to those who care to interpret it. It is refreshing to see something that is not a documentary but not a typical narrative film. I hope more people find it as strange and fascinating as I did.
