Alice Neel Reviews

Sheri Linden

The finely crafted Alice Neel is at once tribute, investigative journalism and messy family drama.

There is a great deal more to Alice's story: the avant-garde of the 1920s; the government's support of artists during the Great Depression; the feminist movement of the 1970s, during which she became an icon. This rich film captures it all.

If the artist is an elusive target, the art is as sharp as a razor blade. The portraits are extraordinary.

So many people speak onscreen, from so many folds of Neel's life, that, despite captions, the viewer feels taxed to keep straight their identities and relationships to Neel.

For all the juicy storytelling, Alice Neel remains, in this film, a cipher: brash, grandmotherly, and beyond understanding.

The effect is spirited rather than incriminating and, bolstered by Jonah Rapino's contemplative score, as piercingly detailed as one of Alice's mesmerizing portraits.

The fascinating documentary Alice Neel illuminates history while also demonstrating how an artist's style reveals his or her personality.

| Original Score: 4/5

Neel is a compelling subject, but she's more alive in one of her paintings than in all of the voluminous video footage her grandson thrusts upon us.
