DAISIES (SEDMIKRASKY)



visually hideous, tiresomely gimmicky satire on materialism, with two bored girls, both named marie, who spend the entire movie causing havoc in restaurants and nightclubs, ripping off unsuspecting men and generally eating and behaving like pigs. as an allegory it lacks any resonance, as a movie it stinks. (adrian turner, from our time out film guide)



how could someone be so wrong?
spend the entire movie causing havoc in restaurants and nightclubs, ripping off unsuspecting men and generally eating and behaving like pigs?
that's practically an endorsement. this movie has nerve to burn.



get carried away with it.

(dir. vera chytilova, 1966)
