East Village Confidential: Dušan Makavejev uses underground stars of New York’s scuzzy counterculture to annotate a tragicomic Socialist Realist romance between a Yugoslav sex-pol militant and a Soviet-positive hero. This crypto-dramatization of martyred radical therapist Wilhelm Reich’s The Mass Psychology of Fascism is the most Godardian film Godard never made. Last Summer Won’t Happen, produced by two activists, interviews garrulous Yippies, kids tripping amid the ancient babushkas of Tompkins Square Park, and more.

Total runtime: 152 mins
