Containing Multitudes Since 2004
This was interesting in comparison with "A Woman Under the Influence" which came out the same year.
Not just your average chick flick,it's a great movie to see to under-stand the woman's perspective on how she feels about a man. Martin Scorcesi's second film after "Mean Streets."
Love this movie - only saw it for the first time recently. It's always a pleasant shock when a film that's flown under my radar for so long turns out to be so full of surprises and vitality. Shame about the series.
I know fans of Scorcese who wouldn't think of watching this movie. And that's a shame. Because it's really good.
This film makes you realize that Scorcese's career could have gone off in a completely different direction. Considering how some of his recent work seems to be almost a parody of himself (Cape Fear and Shutter Island, anyone?), it's a shame he doesn't try to use his influence to make another film like Alice again.
