ABSTRACT
An essay is presented on the author's original notes and her updated view on the film "Daddy," directed by Peter Whitehead and sculptress Niki de Saint Phalle. It explores the subversive potential of a psychic theory of masochism and the absorption of feminist and psychoanalytic theory into critical film discourse on father-daughter relationship. It also outlines the film's structure and themes of seduction fantasies, gender, and sexuality and notes the use of de Saint Phalle's work in the film.
