Alice doesn't Live here Anymore
- Dashiell Barnes
In this romantic drama, Scorsese proves he's capable of making a film about women. Burstyn delivers an "Oscar- worthy" performance, Ladd was nominated for her strong supporting work. Amazing cinematography, but the story was dull at times. A fine film to see from time- to- time. I give it a 3.5/5.
Interesting? Yes Essential? No
I really enjoy Ellen Burstyn in this; appreciate early Scorsese; Kris Kristofferson, well, just because. and ALWAYS, Jodie Foster in, well just about, anything. But this film as an ESSENTIAL? Just doesn't stand up to TCM's usual criteria-ground breaking or timeless or beautifully photographed, etc.
- Glen Pierce
I never say this movie before. Wow! Bursyn was really good. I can relate to this movie right now since I am unemployed somewhat. Her character acted like I feel now. Interesting Scorese movie as usual.
Not an Essential
I cannot believe TCM showed this as part of their Essentials series. The film is one of Martin Scorsese's weakest, an overwrought chick flick brimming with stereotypical characters, overacting and bad pacing. The only bright element is Diane Ladd as Flo in a role in which she should have won the Oscar for which she was nominated.
Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore (1974)
- Jay Higgins
This is one of Martin Scorsese's best films, and is very unlike what you would expect from him. It's hard to believe this followed Mean Streets! Alice is a very sensitive film, with a strong feminist storyline. Ellen Burstyn gives a brilliant performance and she very much deserved her Oscar for this. Very real and believable. Remarkably perceptive with an outstanding screenplay, cinematography and score. A remarkable film.
I thought it was a good movie!
I can't believe this is not out on DVD!! This just shouldn't be. I've been looking for this movie on DVD forever and now know why I couldn't find it. Get real......put this movie out on DVD.
