Harold and Maude

"Excellent"

Harold and Maude Review


One of the true cult classics. He's a 19 year-old kid obsessed with death, suicide, and the afterlife. She's an 80 year-old woman that "loves life." They meet at a funeral, and their adventures together begin. It's not quite a romance, not quite a buddy picture. It is, however, one of the '70s quirkiest comedies, and its bleak morbidity is uncommonly matched by its over-the-top hilarity. Bud Cort would soon become a cult icon for the next 30 years (and going).
