Format: DVD
Alice, the film, has much to recommend it. A great performance from Mia Farrow, some very fun and very funny episodes and an unlikely streak of magical-realism courtesy of a miraculous mandarin.

At first I was resistant, finding myself bored with the cliche Allen vocabulary and set-up amongst the bored, spoiled rich people of Manhattan, but this quickly passed as Alice's visit to a Chinese doctor dispensed with the physical complaint and moved into psychology. Her pursuit of greater understanding of her life and her history is often very insightful but just occasionally a tad dull. The elements of fantasy help a great deal, and there are some very nice jokes, but I felt, for example, the richness of Joe Mantegna's voice going begging with the lacklustre script given to him. Only the potion episode gives him a chance to light up.

One cannot fail to be impressed, again and again, by Allen's ability to capture believeable conversations, especially between women. But? The love affair, the talk of passion and wild abandon: that's a problem. It never materializes. Things never heat up. the closest we get is a terrific moment where Alice is transformed into a vamp intent on seducing the man she's attracted to.

It's better than Another Woman, and is well worth seeing for Mia Farrow's performance. William Hurt plays the conceited husband with aplomb, but I felt at that stage of his career he deserved better. The man who plays Dr Yang is excellent.

Very good, but not great.

While I still don't flat out love this film, I liked it much more on a second viewing. While my original problem with it - thematically it's in some ways a weaker, less original re-make of `Purple Rose of Cairo' still stands, I found myself charmed, caught up and moved, off-setting those moments that are clunkier, too cute, or even borderline racist in their stereotypes. It will never be my favorite Allen film, but it's certainly still a strong effort and Mia Farrow may never have been better. There's enough movie magic here, that it's certainly worth seeing, and for myself, owning.

I believe this is Woody Allen last movie with Mia Farrow. He's not playing in. She delivers a first class performance of a New York socialite who finds her life empty and complete deceit. The tone is light and playful and pokes fun at each character. The therapist, who helps her see the world in and around her, is a Chinese doctor using all kinds of techniques from hypnosis to Chinese herbs. Therapy is an enchantment in this film and works. Woody's later films have a much more pessimist view on therapy (A Tall Dark Stranger for instance). In retrospect, the film is now a great classic for Woody Allen's fans.

By Sebastian Palmer TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 16 Feb. 2014

As another reviewer has noted, this is Allen doing a kind of magic realism. In fact he's done this sort of thing loads over the years, from the appearances of 'Bogey' in Play It Again, Sam, to the emergence of Jeff Daniels' Tom Baxter character from the screen in The Purple Rose Of Cairo. Allen has used hypnosis as a kind of trope of this type in various films, from Zelig to The Curse Of the Jade Scorpion. Here he goes, in an almost Gilbert and Sullivan style, for the 'magic' of Chinese herbal medicine. Some criticise various aspects of this film, but I find it utterly charming. Farrow is great, as are Hurt and Baldwin. There's plenty of wit, and I find the dreamy atmosphere that suffuses the whole thing completely seductive.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Woody Allen's 1990 film Alice, for me, fits into that category of this master director's work that I would call 'middling'. Having a number of things to commend it, but also using themes and ideas that Allen has developed more successfully elsewhere, Alice probably fails for me primarily because of a, for the most part, (relatively) pedestrian and uninspired script.

For the film Allen again casts Mia Farrow in the lead female (and title) role, and, as the film progresses (and Alice becomes imbued with supernatural powers) it becomes clear that the title is probably taken from Lewis Carroll's famous literary creation. Set in Allen's familiar territory of upmarket Manhattan, Alice is married to wealthy Doug (William Hurt) and is part of a society served by maids, in-house cooks and masseuses, and obsessed with all things natural ('They have no more free range chickens') and god-given ('We could talk about a kindergarten that would give him the best chance of getting into an Ivy League college'). The main thread of the story emerges as Alice, bored with her privileged way of life, on a whim visits a mysterious Chinese herbalist, Dr Yang (Keye Luke) for advice with a back problem. The hypnosis and various herbal remedies dished out by Dr Yang give Alice an amazing boost of self-confidence (together with having supernatural effects such as the ability of becoming invisible), thereby allowing Alice to finally initiate a potential affair with fellow parent, Joe Ruffalo (Joe Mantegna).
