    Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore

    ★★★★

    Arguably Scorsese’s most unique film besides maybe Hugo. 

    Following recently widowed Alice and her son traveling across America, this film does a very good job balancing dark realistic moments with more sentimental sweet ones. 

    Ellen Burstyn is incredible here and probably stands as one of the performances Scorsese ever directed. Her relationship with her son is actually very charming to watch. 

    It’s a pretty solid film and definitely one of the biggest departures Scorsese did from his style and it really worked.

    Dev Patel and Richard Ayoade need to be in one of the feature films asap.

    Emily Blunt and Robert Downey Jr. should also be considered for Supporting Awards, however I was surprised by Rami Malek’s scene stealing moment. 

    Seeing Josh Nichols, Rodrick, and Hughie was also…

    While I wouldn’t consider it Fincher’s best, it’s hard to not appreciate the effort taken to recreate that old Hollywood style. 

    The story of Herman Mankiewicz was very engaging for me, I know a lot of people have issues with this films pacing, but I didn’t get bored once. 

    When I wasn’t admiring the lavish cinematography and set design, I was engaged with Gary Oldman’s excellent performance. 

    The score by Reznor and Ross was also really good, capturing the essence…
