77 – Harold and Maude (1971)

Standard

Director: Hal Ashby Starring: Ruth Gordon, Bud Cort, Vivian Pickles Running time: 91 mins

Subject: Morbid teenager gets pally with spritely septuagenarian in a vignette-driven tale that alternates from dark to comic to, “BUT THERE’S 63 YEARS BETWEEN THEM”.

Like: The opposite of all tame, palatable Hollywood romcoms.

Core truth: You don’t choose who you love.
