Dead Beat Film Society

We are the Dead Beat Film Society. Every meeting someone picks an important film. We all watch the film then meet back up to discuss it. Along with a discussion of why the film is important, we analyze the film making, acting, directing, and discuss our personal thoughts and opinions.

The birth of twee!
Join the Dead Beat Film Society as we discuss Hal Ashby, Cat Stevens, Bud Cort as rejected Tiger Beat coverboy, ageism, suicide jokes, the visual style, music, line delivery, and heavy themes that clearly influenced Wes Anderson and started an early 00's indie movement, the connection to Fight Club, our feelings about the ending, setup and breakdown of the manic pixie dream girl,
the Richard Pryor prequel that almost was, the military uncle from a different movie, drinking mushroom tea, whether its possible to gender swap this film, our recast sequel: Harold & Mom, whether Maude is sexually and emotionally manipulative, another crazy theory- Is Maude a figment of Harold's imagination?
Grab another slice of ginger pie and then smash that play button for an in depth Harold and Maude film analysis!
