Sweet Movie acts as a catalyst for the mining of sensation usually stimulated only by what can be found in the dark recesses of one's own imagination.

The use of symbols is at times indecipherable and at others excessive... The scenes are disconnected and incoherent, trying to be provocative. [Full Review in Spanish]

[VIDEO ESSAY] To this day, "Sweet Movie" remains a powerfully defiant film deeply rooted in anti-authoritarian motives.

Irrational and ineffably moving
June 23, 2009
An onslaught of images that are calculated to arouse the viewer to awaken from his slumber.

Neither hard nor softcore. Yugoslav filmmaker Dusan Makavejev's first pic in the West, is provocative but also arbitrary.

This is not a film about which you can have mixed feelings. You either love it or loathe it; you are either on its wavelength or you feel assaulted by it. I stand in the latter category.

Only manages to turn the stomach.

Sweet Movie certainly has varied political aims, but the message is hindered by graphic practices and sex.
May 24, 2003
By turns hilarious and shocking, thanks to the director's penchant for startling imagery and bodily fluids, the passage of time may have deadened their effect but they still have the power to ruffle censorial feathers.

A very bizarre arthouse oddity.

Some call it art. I call it spinach
February 13, 2001
inevitably degenerates into something Charles Manson might have produced

Nobody will ever accuse this one of being formulaic.
