Shot by legendary cinematographer Gordon Willis, this follow-up to What’s Up, Doc? is a broadly comic snapshot of the role of women at the height of the sexual revolution, featuring one of Streisand’s most understated performances. A bored New York housewife on the eve of her third pregnancy finds release in frequent daydreams, including an extended rant at Fidel Castro, a study of female rituals in Kenya, and a plot to blow up the Statue of Liberty.
