■ From the Movie "ALEX IN WONDERLAND"
■ Movie Summary
This autobiographical 1970 film by Paul Mazursky came on the heels of his success with Bob＆ Carol ＆ Ted ＆ Alice. Donald Sutherland stars as a young filmmaker who finds himself the toast of Hollywood after having a big commercial hit. But he feels that he should be doing work that challenges--and even puts off--the mass audience. As the studios clamor for his next film, he finds himself mired in self-conscious writer's block that ultimately leads him to Italy and a meeting with his idol, Federico Fellini (in a cameo as himself). Self-conscious is one of the words critics applied to this film, an obvious and only occasionally funny homage to Fellini's 8 1/2. Nevertheless, it's an interesting artifact of its time.
