Quotes

Frankie Murdoch: Multiple personality, huh? But, who are they?
Oz: Well, they're you. Your aspects of you. Your subconscious.
Frankie Murdoch: Okay, but why?
Oz: That's what we'll have to find out.
Frankie Murdoch: So, what you're saying is, I got all these different... people living inside of me, right? But, I don't know who they are.
Oz: Well, we all have different personalities and different selves. "Do I contradict myself? Very well, then I contradict myself. I am large, I contain multitudes." It's Whitman.

A Great Film.
31 January 2011 | by (Portland, OR) – See all my reviews

Don't be swayed by the negative reviews. I knew nothing about this film before I watched it. Afterward I thought it had been nominated for a bunch of awards. I can't believe it didn't get any nominations, and even got negative reviews from some critics. I'm not sure if this one makes it into my top 10 for the year, but it's definitely in my top 20.

Sure, the subject matter has been covered before, but that shouldn't matter. So has divorce, bank robberies, and most recently, the death of a child. Just because a subject has been covered before in a film doesn't mean the film should be dismissed.

I thought this movie was way better than Rabbit Hole. While Rabbit Hole gets all the recognition, Frankie and Alice gets ignored. I'm not even any sort of huge Halle Berry fanatic. I just know a good movie when I see one and it makes me angry when good films are ignored.
