Looking for a place to start? Follow essential noir leading man Robert Mitchum out west in the taut thriller BLOOD ON THE MOON. Then watch Ida Lupino and Marlene Dietrich play the frontier femmes fatales of LUST FOR GOLD and RANCHO NOTORIOUS—the latter directed by Fritz Lang.

Another unsolicited rec: Nadav Lapid's protean, wildly unsettling Golden 🐻-winner Synonyms (.) Clearly one of the great acting debuts by Tom Mercier—part De Niro, part Baryshnikov, part Bruno S. Loved it, and was frightened by it!

Maybe the New Wave’s most anarchic entry, Věra Chytilová’s absurdist farce DAISIES (1966) follows the misadventures of two brash young women who, believing the world to be “spoiled,” embark on a series of pranks in which nothing—food, clothes, men, war—is taken seriously.

A girl on the verge of womanhood finds herself in a sensual fantasyland of vampires, witchcraft, and other threats in Jaromil Jireš's enticing phantasmagoria VALERIE AND HER WEEK OF WONDERS (1970), an endlessly looping, nonlinear fairy tale, set in a quasi-medieval landscape.

Blending the blackest of gallows humor with disorienting expressionistic flourishes, Juraj Herz’s controversial, long-banned masterpiece THE CREMATOR (1969) is one of cinema’s most trenchant and disturbing portraits of the banality of evil.

In Jan Němec's A REPORT ON THE PARTY AND GUESTS (1966), a picnic is transformed into a lesson in political hierarchy when mysterious authority figures show up. This allegory about oppression and conformity was banned in its home country but became an international success.

One of the New Wave's most beloved films, Ivan Passer's consistently surprising INTIMATE LIGHTING ('65) skirts the demands of plot in favor of subtler shades of mood. The only feature that he directed before decamping to Hollywood, it was banned for 2 decades by state censorship.

A tender look at a young woman's journey from the first pangs of romance to its inevitable disappointments, LOVES OF A BLONDE (1965) became an instant classic of the Czechoslovak New Wave and earned director Miloš Forman the first of his Academy Award nominations.
