"She was your third date!"

I watched Harold and Maude on Thursday night. I liked it. It was quirky. It is a nice love story, probably more perverse than anything Anne Proulx could come up with.

What really grabbed me, though, was the soundtrack from Cat Stevens. He did for this movie what Simon and Garfunkel did for The Graduate four years earlier in 1967, and Harry Nilsson's "Everybody's Talking at Me" for Midnight Cowboy in 1969. And according to Kayla, Jack Johnson will do for Curious George.


PS I just finished Chung King Express, another Wong Kar Wai film. I liked the second story, of the two that comprised the film, better. It had Tony Leung, who I've always enjoyed.
