April 5, 2004
It neither glamorizes nor demonizes truck-stop whoredom; it merely depicts it, with little of the internal strife that ought to accompany it.

This digitally-shot feature never seems aware of its subjects.

This amateur film looks more like a TV show than a movie.

Bell stays focused on the interstate milieu, but it's difficult to believe a frame of it.
December 5, 2003
The movie looks like TV from beginning to end, and accentuates the other major compromise of its meager budget.

What we found is a bleak, but interesting look into a world where the line is blurred between good people and bad. Judith Ivey's performance is the real jewel of the film.

It plays like a walk on the wild side dreamed up in a Starbucks.

Heavy with self-importance and dolphin symbolism.

The whole thing smacks resoundingly of student film, from the youthful protagonist to the road-y premise to the jejune fascination with trailer culture.

Ivey delivers a sassy, no-nonsense performance and Grace shows herself a sensitive young actress, but neither overcomes Bell's pretensions or digital-video limitations.

The film's somewhat light-hearted tone is wholly inappropriate in what is, in essence, a story of sexual predators.

December 23, 2003
A solid character piece that deftly probes the complicity of both sides in a morally dubious relationship.
January 9, 2004
A fine merging of means, material and ego -- a nicely acted, simple little road movie vacuumed free of any indie scene smugness or self-satisfaction.

It's a modest, independent drama that turns out to be a gem!

It so deftly tweaks your presumptions at every turn that you feel, by the end, that you've traveled somewhere -- and not just along several southbound interstates.

What Alice Found, a small, finely wrought drama about a na´ve young woman who gets lost on the American highway, gives that wonderfully salty New York stage actress Judith Ivey one of the chewiest roles of her career.

Ivey is fascinating, cooing nonstop in a cozy Southern accent, friendly and accepting, but also observant and oddly unknowable. It's a performance that even gets better on second viewing.
