    This is among a few films I will never ever tire of watching and it never loses it's impact. The Judd Apatows of modern quirky comedies could never on their best day conceive of a film as wonderfully whimsical as Harold and Maude. It can NEVER be remade (but I did read that they wanted to do a sequel and a prequel about Maude and how she became the person she became. It is totally unnecessary. We are given clues to the terrible things she lived through (the Halocaust, a dead husband) She is catalyst for the death-obsessed Harold to embrace life and not run from it. As morbid as it is at times, the film is very positive and uplifting thanks to stunning performance of the great Ruth Gordon. It was probably my first exposure to Cat Stevens as well.

    Man, oh man, no comments or trailers! This is one of the greatest films of all time! You'd never know from the premise that this is such a delicious coal-black comedy...

    Too bad Paramount didn't care enough about it to give it a good DVD release (the one that's available sort of sucks), and the only place the Cat Stevens soundtrack was ever released was in Japan.
