July 18, 2019
It's a remarkable showcase for Moore, and if you've been keeping up with her roles, a testament to her prowess as an actor.
May 31, 2019
Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland's Still Alice succeeds in being intensely moving but mainly because of Moore.
May 14, 2019
Intellectually, the sadness is undeniable, but Still Alice only rarely fulfils its potential for moving the viewer.
May 10, 2019
Julianne Moore's performance as Dr. Alice Howland is, simply put, one of the best I've ever seen.
January 24, 2019
A solid drama anchored by strong work from Moore in one of the best performances of her career.
December 11, 2018
Still Alice takes an uncomfortable topic and wraps it in an easy-to-swallow format; a beautiful woman, pretty surroundings, and a happy-ish ending.
October 5, 2018
The movie matches its subject with a beautifully appropriate intelligence, and is smartly structured, switching perspectives from Alice's self-preservation to her family members' dealings so imperceptibly that a decisive moment never arrives.
August 30, 2018
Still Alice is hard to watch especially is you've dealt with a similar real life situation; you know there is no good outcome. But as population grows, so does the number of sufferers. It's time a brave film like this shed light on a dark corner.
August 28, 2018
That simple question is part of what gives Still Alice a particular resonance and makes its inexorable slide bearable; it's not a movie about a disease, but about a woman coming to terms with the hand she's been given.
August 27, 2018
Still Alice is filled with outstanding performances and there are moments as gut-wrenching and harrowing as anything I've seen.
August 21, 2018
Still Alice is frightening in its' realism and fear that what makes us unique and special are our memories.
November 20, 2017
The film is lifted by one of the few actresses out there who can make even the blankest of despair feel entirely fresh.
August 24, 2017
Moore's performance as a well-to-do woman stricken with Alzheimer's before her time redeems Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland's cringe-drama Still Alice.
August 3, 2017
What works beyond a shadow of a doubt is Julianne Moore herself. For a long time now, she has demonstrated an uncanny range and power.
June 28, 2017
In Still Alice, we witness a woman who is waving and drowning. It is her fate. It is who she is. Moore makes watching her struggle a rare, if wrenching, privilege.
May 11, 2017
Still Alice is a close-to-heartbreaking portrait of mental illness and a genuinely effecting character study.
April 26, 2017
She captures Alice's distintegration with magisterial precision-the confusion, panic, anger, and heroic resolve to still be herself-and does it all without ever pleading for our sympathy.
February 15, 2017
It's the intent of this moving film to capture something that for obvious reasons is rarely attempted in memoir or movie, i.e., the experience of the deadly disease from the perspective of the sufferer rather than the caregivers.
July 14, 2016
Kristen Stewart, fresh off the weird festival entry Clouds of Sils Maria with Juliette Binoche, is just as good here as ultimately the only unselfish member of this disappointing family. But come and stay for Moore, an actor for this and all ages.
June 13, 2016
70 percent portrait of a disease/30 percent family drama, recommended as preparation/demystification for Alzheimer's-affected families, and for fans of both Moore and Stewart.
