I watched The Graduate tonight. It is not what I had expected at all. I’m not sure what I expected, but it wasn’t what it is. It is also very strange and almost down right creepy. However, I’d still say it is a good movie. You can tell the script was written by a man. Hoffman’s character must have some super-strong pheromones or something because he was attracting women like flies even though he was pretty much a mumbling, insecure, degenerate loser during most of the film.
Pros: Well shot, I identify with Hoffman’s character, Simon and Garfunkel soundtrack, interesting plot, a young Katharine Ross.
Cons: Creepiness is the norm, only 3 different S & G songs played 10 times each
