Alice in the Cities has been one of my very favorite films, and a guiding light, since I first saw it at the Nuart in Santa Monica in the 1970s. How do you explain why you love someone or a work of art? Hopefully, it’s something you spend a lifetime trying to understand. Alice spoke to me specifically as a female in the world, as a young mother, confused, passionate, and messy, and as someone who remembered being a child filled with wonder and complicated feelings.
