NYTimes: In ‘Losing Alice’ Ayelet Zurer burns it all down
Hollywood Insider: ‘Losing Alice’ is a postmodern and non-traditionally structured show that makes direct commentary on philosophical and humanistic issues general people face in life, such as artistic fulfillment, self-love, femininity, and sexuality.
IndieWire: “Losing Alice” plays out on a fragmented timeline just off-kilter enough be unsettling. This doesn’t veer into puzzle-box territory because Avin doesn’t need it to. Anchored by a couple of tremendous performances, “Losing Alice” can take an evocative color palette, a well-placed camera, and a few gentle moves to unlock some genuine uncertainty and anxiety.
