Larry Karaszewski on

Alex In Wonderland

Released 1970
Distributor MGM

Riding high after the tremendous success of his 1969 hit Bob and Carol and Ted and Alice, Paul Mazursky kicked off the ’70s with this self-indulgent ode to his own creative block. Not coincidentally, Alex concerns the travails of a director trying to top his last hit. Felliniesque in the worst way (even though the great director cameos),  the film nevertheless features a stellar cast including Donald Sutherland, Jeanne Moreau and a special appearance by Larry Edmund’s Bookshop.
