    I love the indie filmmaking. It makes it feel more original whilst feeling so specific to the 1990s. 

    It’s really funny and has really good performances from everyone in the film. It has a very loose plot, quotable lines, funny characters with great chemistry, and fun music. 

    I really liked this film.

  • Harold and Maude

    Harold and Maude

    ★★★★½

    Is Maude a Manic Pixie Dream Girl? Yes, of sorts. But that doesn’t matter because I love her. She is eccentric and bubbly and carefree. 

    It was so interesting to see the contrasting attitudes of two people with a huge generational gap. It’s something that hasn’t been explored before or since. I loved watching Harold grow and learn to appreciate life.

    The soundtrack really emphasises the freedom in which Maude embodies and Harold learns to embody. 

    I would love to watch more of Hal Ashby’s work because I appreciate how humanly he portrays the misunderstood.

    The chemistry between the characters and the action were the best elements of the film. I LOVE Florence Pugh even more! The villain was a great threat, but he didn’t have much of an appearance and didn’t feel exciting enough in some moments. Also is it just me that thought the CGI in those final action sequences was a bit off? 

    Anyway, it is still an enjoyable MCU film. I love that it was directed by a woman, and had so many more female characters than male characters - which is rare in an MCU film, let alone an action film.

    What can I say? It’s my favourite movie of all time.

    River, what can I say about you that millions of other people haven’t said.

    Rob Reiner - his direction is the best thing about this film. He understood whilst still keeping to the novella. He made everyone comfortable with the material and made it personal to him.

    Its themes are so universal in the simplistic but powerful ways they are explored.

    Stephen King said that this film was the first completely successful adaptation of his work. And, for me, it’s not hard to see why…
