The film went on to garner multiple Oscar nominations, including a Best Actor win for star William Hurt, in what many credit as a trailblazing model that ushered in the rise of the independent film movement that reached its crescendo the following decade.

Featuring regular criticisms and exploitations of society, pop culture and Russian statesmen, 'Daria' appeared to be desti...
