The life and work of Alice Neel (1900-1984), American portrait painter. Part of the narration is chronological, part consists of interviews with friends, other artists, scholars, and family members, particularly two sons, Richard and Hartley, who are none too sanguine about their childhood and their mother's Bohemian life, and the filmmaker himself, a grandson whose querulous voice is heard from time to time. The film also includes footage of Neel, later in life, painting, talking, appearing on television, and giving lectures. Throughout, we see her paintings, bold, frank, and direct. After years of poverty and obscurity, fame comes as she nears 70.

Alice Neel torrent reviews
(kr) wrote: A very good low budget horror film. Great acting and direction. A few plot holes, but all in all worth a rental. If you need blood and guts to be scared, this is not for you.

(mx) wrote: Its 'The Office' meets 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre'. This British horror comedy consistently hits that sweet-spot between gory thrills and hardy laughs.
(it) wrote: Renowned photographer turned filmmaker Anton Corbjin tells the story of the short lived but influential career of the late Joy Division frontman Ian Curtis. The cinematography does not only make this film unique and deeply close up and personal, but it also conveys to perfection the nature of the character on which the film is based. Sam Riley's careful and well timed performance as Ian Curtis is great.
(de) wrote: Guillermo del Toro is gone and so is any of the vision, atmosphere and creativity that might have been present in the original. Avoid at all costs.
(fr) wrote: unsettling. in an awful way.
(br) wrote: A remarkable sci-fi film with blends of romance, action, and drama, CEotTK is investigative, intelligent, and provokes a dismissal of military alien plot structures. It's effective and inviting with its drama, and its special effects are impressive and inventive.
(kr) wrote: One of the best martial arts movie of the 80's. People who are into any type of martial arts, health or fitness will like this.
(mx) wrote: A great drama that focuses on a Catholic Church and good acting.
(ru) wrote: Didn't like the movie until Arkin showed up. Al Pacino really hasn't been good in a role in quite a while.
(jp) wrote: Absolute outstanding acting. Johnny Depp once again seems to change his whole appearance for this film. Emotion was easily processed. Leonardo Dicaprio had me confused thinking it was someone playing the role of Arnie. I believed it was a real mentally disabled actor. Great Performance.
