Harold and Maude is one of the best American movies ever produced.
Is it artistic content as profound and earnest as an Orson Welles film?Probably not but I always enjoy watching it.

Harold and Maude is a true classic and Hal Ashby one of the great directors.

And...don't know if anyone's mentioned Sidney Lumet's 12 Angry Men yet, but it certainly deserves a mention.

Most of the American films I like were made in the 40s and 50s, filmed in black and white and were noirish. The only recent film is by Jarmusch - and it's in Black and White. My preference is for British & Australian films combined with the International Masters.

All About Eve
Casablanca
Citizen Kane
Deser Fury
Laura
Scarlett Street
Stranger Than Paradise
The Big Sleep
The Glass Key
The Maltese Falcon
