Daisies (Věra Chytilová, 1966)
(Věra Chytilová, 1966, 76 min, Czechoslovakia, Czech w/ English subtitles, Color/B&W, DCP)
Maybe the New Wave's most anarchic entry, Věra Chytilová's absurdist farce follows the misadventures of two brash young women. Believing the world to be "spoiled," they embark on a series of pranks in which nothing-food, clothes, men, war-is taken seriously. "Daisies" is an aesthetically and politically adventurous film that's widely considered one of the great works of feminist cinema.

"One of the great outpourings of cinematic invention in an age of over-all artistic liberation." - Richard Brody, The New Yorker
". . .one of the most exhilarating stylistic and psychedelic eruptions of the 60s, this madcap and aggressive feminist farce by Vera Chytilova explodes in any number of directions." - Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
