Arlo Guthrie: Alice's Restaurant (Dir. Arthur Penn; United Artists)
Lon Goddard, Record Mirror, 20 December 1969
THE FILM of Alice's Restaurant lacks the whimsical outlook that made the LP track of the same name. On the LP, Arlo Guthrie seeks to humour his audience and allows the underlying satire to bite and sting, but the film reeks of desolation and mixed loyalties.
