Harold and Maude
Directed by Hal Ashby
Harold and Maude is a romantic dark comedy about a young man and an elderly woman. The film’s music, by Cat Stevens, is excellent and well-suited, but the film’s visuals are flat and disappointing. Harold and Maude is original, often unexpected, and occasionally moving, but the writing, acting, and tone are uneven, and much of the film is more cloying than insightful.
