Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore...1974
One of Scorsese's early films Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore is a solid little drama/comedy.
After her husband dies Alice (Ellen Burstyn) decides to move to Monterey CA, a place she has idolized due to her childhood there, along the way she goes on a journey of self discovery.
Kris Kristofferson is the love interest, Diane Ladd, steals the show as Flo, Harvey Keitel plays an intense maniac, and a young Jodie Foster is a precocious teen.
The opening alone is worth the watch, it's an homage to The Wizard Of Oz, showing Alice's fantasy version of her childhood in California.
