The Graduate

Of all the 1967 movies I’ve watched during this marathon (which I’m capping at 10), if I had to chose the best, it would be a tie between this and Belle de Jour. The Graduate was even better than I remembered, not only with a story that is still fun to follow, but with cinematography that is insanely innovative and inspired. And there’s of course the terrific soundtrack by Simon & Garfunkel. The strangest thing though was to now be watching this movie and being much older than Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft was 35 years old when she played the role).
