What to know

critics consensus

Anchored by Michael Caine's charmingly droll performance, Alfie is an equally raucous and heart-rending portrait of romance in the Swinging '60s. Read critic reviews

Audience Reviews for Alfie

    Sorely dated not only in look but in subject matter, this film takes place in the swinging 60's of London, and a lot of the attitudes of that time are front and center. Most of the time, you think Alfie is a bastard by the way he treats his "birds," but eventually, you start to feel for him by the end. Well-shot and edited, this is real classic, but I'm sure it will turn newer viewers off.

    What's it all about, Alfie? Original for its time, with the protagonist addressing the camera, but the very dated attitudes don't exactly paint a pretty portrait of '60s London.

    I saw this after seeing the recent remake of it thinking that it would be much better, but I was disappointed. Even with Caine's great performance, the story lacks any feeling, it doesn't make the audience care about or feel anything. I do not care for Alfie at all, but this movie was slightly better than the remake, so I gave it a higher rating.

    The juvenile charisma of a thirty-something Michael Caine onscreen with all manner of woman started off as a candid comedic romp about sex in the swinging sixties. It becomes apparently clear early on that this is far from the case. A deep and distressing view of male promiscuity doesn't cover the parade of veneral disease that the title character trots out for his own soliloquied amusement. No, this was simply a character study of a very vapid and self -centered individual who comes to terms with his own centeredness through tragic sets of circumstances, including an affair with his roommate's wife, a relationship with a hitchhiker, the loss of a relationship with his only son, Malcolm, and a treasonous dupe by his latest conquest, Ruby. (Winters) Calamity abounds, but really, it was just a sad tirade of an aging lout.
