Just a homeboy who likes movies
Sometimes, image and sound are married together in an inseparable union that will last for all eternity.
The Graduate is one of these instances, Harold and Maude is another. In the latter, Hal Ashby officiated the wedding of Ruth Gordon and Bud Cort to Cat Stevens, and it's a most delightful ceremony that everyone should attend while they still can. Because as Will Toledo so succinctly put it: "everybody throws a party, everybody throws a funeral," and this film is a fine reminder of that fact.
Tarkovsky personally showed this to Kurosawa. In order to celebrate, they got drunk on vodka and started singing the theme from Seven Samurai. Top tier moment in the history of cinema.
