1. Daisies
2. Fruit of Paradise
3. The Inheritance or CINECAST!offguysgoodday



Expecting a lot of "haven't seen any" for this one... even on IMDb, most of her films have fewer than 200 votes.  But I find her work (what little I've seen) very intriguing.  Daisies reminds me a lot of Celine and Julie Go Boating, but better and funnier.

I can't do it. I didn't like what I've seen and I can't get a strong enough recommendation on anything else.

1. Daisies
2. Something Different
3. Pearls of the Deep - "Automat Svet"

Something Different (1963)
★ ★
I like the idea here, two parallel stories of women (a housewife and a gymnast) becoming increasingly frustrated by their expected role and duty while trying to find happiness for themselves. I like the idea, but aside from some smash edits, there's no drama. I got more out of reading what the film  is about then actually experiencing it.


I also started to rewatch Daisies, but I can't click with Chytilová
