What Alice Found
[] Buy posters from this movie
by Greg Muskewitz

"Alice in Truck-Stop Hookerland."
2 stars

Low-low-budget indie written and directed by A. Dean Bell, has a teenage girl driving from New Hampshire to Florida in order to join her friend at college, when possible tampering with decommissions her car and she accepts a ride from a nice older couple traveling in their RV.

The luxury thrown on her turns out to be too good to be true when she discovers the woman is a truck-stop hooker and the husband her pimp, but its not enough to send her hitching elsewhere. Rather, she decides to start hooking too, convinced that she can refill the funds she lost. The digital video image rubbery, gel-like, flat, drained of life and color has to be some of the worst in recent memory. The newness of whoever was behind the camera is reflected by the greenness of the writer/directors inability to instruct how proper use should be applied. Judith Ivey is good as the experienced prostitute, gently assuring the viewer that if based on looks alone, we would be missing out on more than a few unexpected surprises. With Emily Grace and Bill Raymond.

[See it if you must.]
