Alias Betty (Betty Fisher et autres histoires) (Betty Fisher and Other Stories) Reviews

Mezcla de serie negra "a la francesa" con estudio sórdido sobre la maternidad, Betty Fisher posee la estructura cinematográfica que debe tener una película que entrecruza historias como si fueran piezas de un collage que, al final, se juntan.

A pleasant enough valentine to Rendell's The Tree of Hands, if a story that deals with child abuse and sexual obsession could be described in those terms.

This is pretty dicey material. But some unexpected zigs and zags help.

An ingenious and often harrowing look at damaged people and how families can offer either despair or consolation.

San Diego Union-Tribune

Miller is playing so free with emotions, and the fact that children are hostages to fortune, that he makes the audience hostage to his swaggering affectation of seriousness.

Either a fascinating study of the relationship between mothers and their children or a disturbing story about sociopaths and their marks.

Some of what happens in Alias Betty is highly improbable. Yet Miller and his excellent cast sell the story by not overplaying their hands.

Understated, elegant meditation on motherhood, obligation and coincidence, all wrapped up in the form of an urban thriller.

It says a lot about a filmmaker when he can be wacky without clobbering the audience over the head and still maintain a sense of urgency and suspense.

[Miller] knows that good suspense films don't always need to keep viewers on the edges of their seats; sometimes they can just be concerned with what interesting characters will do next.
