#468. Daisies (1966)
Why It's In The Book: "Surely one of the most exhilarating stylistic and psychedelic cinematic explosions of the 1960s, Vera Chytilová’s Daisies is a madcap and aggressive feminist farce that explodes in any number of directions. Although many American and Western European filmmakers during this period prided themselves on their subversiveness, it is possible that the most radical film of the decade, ideologically as well as formally, came from the East – from the liberating ferment building toward the short-lived political reforms of 1968’s Prague Spring in Czechoslovakia… This disturbing yet liberating tour de force shows what this talented director can do with freedom. A major influence on Jacques Rivette’s Céline and Julie Go Boating, Daisies is chock-full of female giggling, which might be interpreted in context as what critic Ruby Rich has called the laughter of the medusa: Subversive, bracing, energizing, and rather off-putting (if challenging) to most male spectators." -1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die
Sunny D - 8/10
"It's always worthwhile to expose yourself to the forms and ideas that make tyrants nervous."
Adolytsi - 7/10
"Daisies is a weird, weird film. It enjoys being weird, and demands you enjoy being weird along with it."
Klaus Ming - 7/10
"Daisies is a loose montage of seemingly innocuous images which combine with intent to undermine the hold of a suspicious state government"
Michaël Parent - 7/10
"This Czech film, banished by the government when it came out, might be one of the most interesting experimental feminist farce I've ever seen."
Movie Guy Steve - 7/10
"Sedmikrasky (Daisies) asks what it would be like if there were two Bugs Bunnies and they were Czech women."
Nicolas Krizan - 7/10
"Czech chick shock"
Squish - 7/10
"Fans of mainstream modern movies who appreciate this will slowly come to realize they're in fact hidden cinephiles whose minds secretly hunger for what Criterion has to offer."
