in spite of the clowning of Arlo Guthrie [Alice's Restaurant] is one of the more depressing movies I've seen lately, so much more so than Easy Rider, because confusion and passivity are more demoralizing than violence.
Penn's strong sympathy with the outsider and anti-Establishment stance comes across in a film that appealed to those who could identify with this communal hippie haven, but now seems too naive and distant.
In the end, the slap-dash narrative loses focus and credulity, particularly when the tale turns to the disintegrating relationship of Alice and Ray, and to an ill-developed subplot involving the ex-con drug addict Shelly.
