  • David Ehrlich

    The rare film possessed with the courage required to shine a light into that abyss knowing full well that down is the only way out.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    Ms. Moore shares her journey with boundless generosity. She makes you feel what it’s like to lose the wind beneath your wings.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Tim Robey

    It’s extremely moving in the gentlest, most linear way, and the other performances are sterling, too.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Gregory Ellwood

    The film lives and dies on Moore’s portrayal. She succeeds smashingly.

    HitFix Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    The triumph of Still Alice is that it’s not about an illness; it’s about a person.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Deborah Young

    The toll the disease takes on the life of a brilliant linguistics professor is superbly detailed by Julianne Moore in a career-high performance, driving straight to the terror of the disease and its power to wipe out personal certainties and identity.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    Julianne Moore guides us through the tragic arc of how it must feel to disappear before one’s own eyes, accomplishing one of her most powerful performances by underplaying the scenario.

    Variety Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Still Alice is undoubtedly a tough movie; it contains life-affirming moments but its perspective is what makes it unique.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    You won’t see a better performance by an actress on film this year than Julianne Moore as a linguistics professor struggling to hold onto her personality after a diagnosis of early onset Alzheimer’s in the unforgettable drama Still Alice.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    Going on 20 years now, Moore is someone who's been so reliably good for so long that we've probably taken her for granted. But her subtle, heartbreaking decline as Alice—from her initial diagnosis to her daily struggle to hold on to her identity and dignity to her eventual disappearance in plain sight—is among her most devastating performances.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    Glatzer and Westmoreland don’t need to stack the emotional deck on Alice’s behalf or wring tears from the irony of a brilliant linguist’s cognitive decline. They just leave the camera on Moore’s beautiful but increasingly faraway face, and our tears come on their own.

    Slate Full Review
  • James Rocchi

    There's an extraordinarily tough and smart delicacy to Still Alice, and it stretches far beyond the writing or Moore's performance or even the sympathy of the circumstance.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Catherine Shoard

    This is an effortlessly excellent film, about a horribly hard subject.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    With Moore’s formidable, Oscar-bound performance, the picture transcends the usual cliches of the genre to become something far more moving and profound.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    At its best, Still Alice is a moving inquisition into the emotions and memories and connections that make us us and how we might cope when they’re taken away with slow, impersonal cruelty.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Moore delivers a performance that should win awards. We believe every inch of the performance, every movement of Moore’s eyes when she gets the news of her condition, every scene in which she experiences another level of deterioration. It’s beautiful work.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    For all the movie’s honesty, the reality of Alzheimer’s disease is a lot worse than what you see in Still Alice. Perhaps directors Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland made a calculation as to how much an audience can take. They were right.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Moore shows us acting at its best, alive with ferocity and feeling and committed to truth.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Moore makes us root for Alice, not for a cure, which still seems a reach, but for a completion of her life’s goals, a chance to control her fate as long as she has the wherewithal to do it.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    It’s a strange movie – simultaneously rawly realistic and airbrushed.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    While other Alzheimer's-related films, including "Amour," "Iris" and "Away from Her", delved more deeply into the subject, Alice is understated yet still moving.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

    Though shot in the stolidly inconspicuous style of a low-rated cable drama, Still Alice is rarely anything short of compelling, in part because its sense of progression and scale offers such a distinctively unsentimental take on the terminal-countdown tearjerker.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    It's Moore who makes the movie worthwhile, who elevates it from disease-of-the-week fare to the role of a lifetime.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    Elements of its plot have the standard quality of a Hallmark production, and the work of some of the film's costars is a bit too on the nose. But, with Moore and Stewart on the case, we feel the presence of something real here, something that can't be shrugged off or ignored.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    Still Alice is being called a career performance for Moore, and although it may be one of her most poignant roles (it has earned her a fifth Oscar nomination), the part barely scratches the surface of her ability.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Christy Lemire

    With a combination of power and grace, Julianne Moore elevates Still Alice above its made-for-cable-television trappings, and delivers one of the more memorable performances of her career. Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    Ms. Moore, for her part, doesn’t need fine writing to create marvelous moments; some of her most powerful scenes are wordless ones in which Alice is looking anxious, confused or utterly haunted. When the script provides exceptional material, however, this extraordinary actress takes it to a memorably high level.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Anthony Lane

    Time and again, as it comes to the next stage of deterioration or distress, it flinches. Try laying it beside Michael Haneke’s “Amour,” which shows the effect of a stroke on an elderly woman, no less refined than Alice, and on her loved ones. Haneke knows the worst, and considers it his duty to show it; Glatzer and Westmoreland want us to know just enough, and no more.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    The test of realism in a movie like this — the thing that would separate it from a conventional, made-for-television disease melodrama — is whether you can imagine lives for the secondary characters when they aren’t on screen. Still Alice lacks that kind of thickness.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    Aided by witty and understated work from Baldwin and Stewart and the capable direction of Glatzer and Westmoreland, Moore does her utmost to pull Still Alice toward the realm of meaningful social drama. Let’s put it this way: It’s a way better movie than it ought to be, but not good enough to escape its pulpy, mendacious roots. Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    Hampered by both an unimaginative script and ordinary direction, but it’s a serious Oscar contender. Why? Because Julianne Moore is in the lead.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    It’s undeniably moving, but straightforward to a fault.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Kevin Jagernauth

    Competently directed, and delivered with the expected emotional beats, Still Alice achieves its modest goals, but one wishes it had a grander vision.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Ed Gonzalez

    Julianne Moore and Kristen Stewart's artful consideration of familial friction acerbated by disease, and vice versa, nearly saves Still Alice from the banality of its Lifetime-movie execution.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • David Hughes

    Julianne Moore gives the performance of her career (no mean feat, given the strength of her previous work) in this heartbreaking yet life-affirming tale of a woman determined to hold onto her identity while under attack from a debilitating mental disease.

    Empire Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    For all of its movie-of-the-week mechanics, this is a deeply moving dramatization of what Alzheimer's does to mind and spirit, anchored by the finest performance, male or female, from any 2014 movie release.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Kevin Harley

    Moore gives a controlled portrait of emotional implosion, bringing quietly heartbreaking nuances to a calm, considered treatment of a life-shattering situation.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Stephanie Merry

    The filmmakers invite the audience to get close enough to feel the pain without having to relive the depths of the real-life horror.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Patrick Gamble

    A desire to avoid sentimentality is admirable, yet Still Alice relies entirely on Moore's performance to mask its multitude of shortcomings.

    CineVue Full Review
  • Josh Kupecki

    Moore’s much-lauded performance of a person disappearing before our eyes is a heartbreaking thing to behold; it’s unfortunate that the film around her can't rise above the level of uninspired melodrama.
