I saw Alfie recently. It starts out so great — funny and insightful. Then it gets a bit too insightful. I think it hits home a bit too hard for me. The reviews on it are pretty widely polarized; probably because the ones who hated it can’t relate.
It makes me wonder what the 1966 original with Michael Caine was like, because the new one is given an unfavourable comparison in many reviews. I thought it was pretty good myself.
