Works about this Work

Dusan Makevejev : The Wolf and the Teddy Bear Phillip Lopate , 2013 single work criticism
— Appears in: Salmagundi , Spring no. 178-179 2013; (p. 159-173, 224)

'Lopate discusses filmmaker Dusan Makavejev consideration and enthusiasm to remake the movie The Blue Light. There was a refreshingly amoral suspension of disbelief to Makavejev's enthuisasm–at the very least, a reluctance to make the usual condemning judgments preferring to exhibit a baffled wonderment of his favorite word "Incredible!" He was an advocate of liberation, especially sexual liberation, but also warned of the violence that could be unleashed when the self-repressive character armor breaks down–or in political terms, when idealism gives way to the urge for domination.'
