Criterion Reflections – Episode 25 – Věra Chytilová’s Fruit of Paradise

Criterion Reflections is David Blakeslee’s ongoing project to watch all of the films included in the Criterion Collection in chronological order of their original release. Each episode of this second season of the podcast features conversations with a variety of guests offering insights on movies that originally premiered in 1970 and were destined to eventually bear the Criterion imprint. In this episode, David is joined by Jordan Essoe to discuss Fruit of Paradise, directed by Věra Chytilová, which was available on the Criterion Channel on FilmStruck at the time of this episode’s publication.
