“Harold is death, Maude life, and they manage to make the two seem so similar that life’s hardly worth the extra bother.” —Roger Ebert
“Harold is a young man who doesn’t want to live. Maude is an older woman who has a talent for living. They meet at a funeral and the fun begins there. The quirky and intelligent Hal Ashby (Being There, Coming Home) made a poignant, romantic film that wasn’t initially a hit but became the very definition of a cult classic” (Greg Proops). This heavy dose of black comedy and romantic existentialism is a must in the midnight-canon.
Dir. Hal Ashby, 1971, 35mm, 91 min.
