Harold And Maude (1971)

Rated R, but only for some foul language at the very end.

Harold And Maude

Even though it’s all about dark fantasies, depression and death, Harold And Maude is a cult classic that remains solidly funny half a century later. Bud Cort and Ruth Gordon are a fun/odd romantic couple in this unique love story. Gordon is the manic pixie dream lady who has even bleaker plans than the faux-suicidal Cort. We had a serious discussion about the grim subtext, but we didn’t forget that Hal Ashby’s movie was then and still is wacky and entertaining. There’s meat on these bones. So don’t be shy. Just live in the now and spend a bit of your day earing up the 403rd Ellises’ Analysis.
