No amount of technical polish can make up for artificiality of theme and dishonesty of treatment. -Satyajit Ray, from Our Films Their Films

Being There (1979) - 7/10

The Last Detail (1973) - 7/10
Harold and Maude (1971) - 7/10


I used to love H&M to pieces, but now Maude's wisdom seems rather cloying and trite to me. Still a nice movie though, with a great soundtrack.

When she embraces, your heart turns to stone
She comes at night, when you're all alone
And when she whispers, your blood shall run cold
You'd better hide before she finds you...
