Alexander The Last
Alexander The Last – Movie Review
A sensual and intimate portrait of a young marriage. Focusing on an artistic young couple, Alexander the Last illuminates the challenges of monogamy amidst myriad sexual and creative temptations. Starring Jess Weixler, Justin Rice, Barlow Jacobs, Amy Seimetz, Josh Hamilton and Jane Adams.
Alexander the Last has got a good cast and a confusing plot. As much as I can tell, it seems to be about a married actress, her sister and all of their sexual interactions and temptations. It’s very hard to figure it out, because at the beginning they in fact refer to each other as sisters, but you don’t know if it’s because they’re biological siblings or they’re talking about sisterhood, or it’s because they’re lesbians. And the confusion doesn’t get any less as it goes along. It is sexy, hard to follow, the fact that the two women look interchangeable with one another is also confusing. It seems to me that it’s one of those movies that tries too hard to be hip and loses something like heart in the translation.
