  • A film with progressive instincts that were both informed and complicated by the emergence of feminism as a political movement.

Audience Reviews for Alvin Purple

  • Nov 05, 2008
    This early 1970s Australian film is a classic tale of sex and alienation and first real sex. Alvin Purple is not a good looking man, in fact you could say that he is pretty ugly. Nor is he funny or a man of great character in any sense. But somehow, for reasons unknown, he is irresistible to women. He attracts women wherever he goes: on the bus, in the park, even just walking down the street. The film contains a significant amount of sex and could be classified as a soft porn movie, but the sex is not for erotic purposes, but for comedic purpose as I cannot stop laughing as this awkward man who seems to know nothing about women has sex more times in a week than most people do in a lifetime. I remembered the locations of Melbourne area that has changed from 1973 to the present which are familiar to me.
