HAROLD AND MAUDE (1971)
91 MINUTES, USA
DIRECTOR: HAL ASHBY
CAST: RUTH GORDON, BUD CORT, CYRIL CUSACK
Harold and Maude both attend many funerals: Harold, a very young man, because he’s obsessed with death; Maude, a septuagenarian, because she’s drunk on life. It’s only a matter of time before they meet, and when they do, they click. Hal Ashby, a director big in the 1970s but who somehow never quite made it out of that decade, turns unpromising material into a charming black comedy, helped by a generous dose of Cat Stevens songs, some written for the film, some merely sounding as though they were.
