Life is šweet!

Hello, Serbian avant-garde filmmaker Dušan Makavejev! Your eyebrows sure are arched this morning. And look at the smooth curvature of your egg-shaped head. Impressive.

But, after all, anyone's who's been as vindicated by history as you have deserves to express themselves through an enthusiastic half-grin. You may have been expelled from your native land for directing such daring, transgressive films as W.R.: Mysteries of the Organism (1971) and Sweet Movie (1974), but now the Cold War is over and they're considered international masterpieces. Suck on that, Yugoslav movie police!

And you, Mr. Makavejev? You go on being happy.
