Editorial Reviews

Fans and critics nationwide agree that acclaimed indie filmmaker Joe Swanberg (HANNAH TAKES THE STAIRS, NIGHTS AND WEEKENDS) has now delivered his most mature, intimate and accomplished film yet. It s the seriously sensual story of a married theater actress (Jesse Weixler of TEETH), her musician husband (Justin Rice of the band Bishop Allen), her on-stage lover (Barlow Jacobs) and her impulsive sister (Amy Seimetz), all caught in their own sexual and creative tangle of commitments, temptations and performance.
Jane Adams (HAPPINESS, HUNG) and Josh Hamilton (AWAY WE GO) co-star in this provocative new drama written, directed, edited and shot by Swanberg and co-produced by Noah Baumbach, the Oscar® nominated writer/director of THE SQUID AND THE WHALE and MARGOT AT THE WEDDING.

Format: DVD
Joe Swanberg's tiny 72 minute "Alexander the Last" is one of those slight mini-indie films that might splash on the film festival circuit but struggle with a wider audience. While I had not seen Swanberg's previous efforts, I had heard nice things about his potential and style. So I had really hoped to rave about "Alexander The Last." With so many great attributes, however, the film seems so disjointed and lacks a cohesive plot and/or character thread to tie these disparate elements together. Ultimately, I felt the film had several very nice moments, some authentic truths and yet had nowhere to go with them. Vaguely or completely unsatisfied at the end (I haven't made up my mind), "Alexander the Last" ultimately seemed more of a experimental exercise than a fully formed film.

At its best, "Alexander the Last" showcases a terrific and believable portrait of sisters. Playful, with a language of their own, when Jess Weixler and Amy Seimetz share the screen--you see where the focus might have been placed to create a better narrative. Weixler is a married stage actress who starts to feel an attraction for her new co-star. She introduces him to her sister, and they get sort of involved. When her husband comes home, it's kind of awkward. Swanberg taps into so many valid emotional moments, but seems content to leave them all relatively unexplored. Is this about sisterly jealousy? Inappropriate attraction? Marriage? Heck if I know, the focus is ever changing.

Look, I don't need everything spelled out for me. But once the film starts to achieve some dramatic momentum--guess what? There are endless stretches with zero dialogue. I'm never one to say "no" to sex scenes but I guess I'd have preferred the time spent on character motivation.

Then you shouldn't be surprised at the micro-budget quality and and the improvisational style and the "natural" dialogue. The portrayals of the relationships felt authentic and the story offered up some nice moments. Just a nice movie, and it's short 70-some minutes, so if you don't love it, well it'll be over soon, you guys.

I am very disappointed about this movie. For whatever reason, I expected move of the indie movie about young people finding their way in the world of adults with their peronal and professional stories. There are two sisters who are very close; they have created their own world and in lots of ways they are similar: both blond, close in age and artistic. On the other hand, they are different: one is married and the other one seems to bounce easily from one man to another without being emotionally scattered. The moment her sexual appetite is met, she discards them and moves on. But even the men they are with are similar in their physical appearance not to mention that "the guys" are also artists themselves,

There is obvious sexual confusion, tension and rivalry between the sisters. On the other hand, could it be that they are just too close to the point of being incestuous? I really do not know. There is too much improvisation and "what if" scenarios that leave this movie just too open ended for any sort of interpretation, let alone conclusion.

Actors are just not impressive. I am sorry to say but I do not see their talent as unlimited. Hopefully they make a lot of movies in their acting careers but on the other hand I would not be surprised if their careers are short lived....

Most of the action is improvised. The narrative itself is weak and doesn't quite hold together but nevertheless there are some fine moments. Jess Weixler, as always, delivers the goods.
