Rewatching The Graduate is a true time travel.

[VIDEO ESSAY] The otherness that Ben feels points to the film's most overlooked and underappreciated aspect; Ben is a Jew passing as an all-American WASP at a time in America when discrimination against Jews was prevalent.

The emotional elevation of the film is due in no small measure to the extraordinarily engaging performances of Anne Bancroft as the wife-mother-mistress, Dustin Hoffman as the lumbering Lancelot, and Katherine Ross as his fair Elaine.

It's consistently fleet and funny, even as it probes the heady abandon and looming hangover that typified the decade of discontent.

Mike Nichols and veteran cinematographer Robert Surtees threw out the DGA playbook for The Graduate.

Not Coming to a Theater Near You

Having an unlikeable protagonist is fine if our sympathy and understanding are effectively directed elsewhere. The problem, then, is that I can't figure out where, or who, that might be.

The screenplay, which begins as genuine comedy, soon degenerates into spurious melodrama.

Rather a shame it's so often mistaken for a statement about something beyond the milk-fed adolescent blues.

Mike Nichols' seminal film at once reflected the generation gap and also widened it, giving youths a clear voice, indigenous music, villains (all adults), and a sympathtic anti-hero, played to perfection by Dustin Hoffman in a career-making turn.

...plastics, an apt description for the artificial people and attitudes around him.

Nichols takes an ad hoc approach to comic irony and the movie seems to have been enshrined by American audiences because each moment in isolation "works," no matter that they tend to cancel each other out.

The film itself is very broken-backed, partly because Anne Bancroft's performance as the mother carries so much more weight than Katharine Ross' as the daughter, partly because Nichols couldn't decide whether he was making a social satire or a farce.

All the indie imitators that have come later still can't touch this hilarious and biting classic.

The post-college burnout feeling that continues to resonate with audiences today. A comedy of tragedy, in which a man's youthful idealism is dealt its inevitable deathblow.
