Return with thoughts on STILL ALICE

imageOnce again, on reflection, my opinion of a movie does a volte face.

Perhaps STILL ALICE is in fact a quiet masterpiece of just being there (another great movie). No three act structure no journey the screenwritingclassteacher’s bête noir. Anathema – the ultimate sin of “and then…. and then…. and then”. No why, just because. Husband (overweight thick necked academic bull full of love and incomprehension couched in intellect superb Alec Baldwin) ups and leaves at the end. He abandons his wife to her own lost abandon. This movie is a space that is that ends abruptly in white space.

Julianne Moore. Best Best Leading Actress Oscar in years.
