Alice and I watched Harold and Maude yesterday afternoon.  She foudn the film bizarre, though she did laugh a few times, especially at the priest's comments on Harold's impending marriage.  Without the context of 70s America, I can understand why the film might seem creepy.  Alice couldn't quite get over Harold and Maude together.  I hadn't seen the film in a couple of decades, but it still feels relevant and holds up.  The music, the irony, the insanity, all ring true.  Bud Cort and Ruth Gordan are perfect.  I'd forgotten how good Vivian Pickles is.
