[Paul] Mazursky does himself the disservice of letting us believe that there is nothing more distinctive within him than plastic storefronts and bubblegum philosophies. Full Review

Rating: 4/4 -- What makes it so good is the gift Mazursky, Tucker and their actors have of fleshing out the small scenes of human contact that give the movie its almost frightening resonance. Full Review

Rating: C+ -- Mazursky's follow-up to his striking debut, Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice, is quite a pretentious imitation of the seminal 81/2 by maestro Fellini, who makes a cameo in the film but the acting of Sutherland is solid. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

Alex (Donald Sutherland) is the hottest commodity in Hollywood, a first-time director who's completed an unreleased but buzzed-about movie. Opportunity doesn't knock, it hammers. Alex and his wife (Ellen Burstyn) can buy a big home (which one?). He can lunch with a big producer (the producer pitches him). He can dream big (and in outlandish reveries, he does). The only thing Alex can't do is decide what he'll film next.

After Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice put them on everyone's Rolodex, the filmmaking duo of Paul Mazursky and Larry Tucker created this far-out exploration of Alex's quandary that's both Felliniesque homage and, fascinatingly so today, a time capsule of Hollywood's take on the values of the '60s.

Product Description:

Paul Mazursky wrote and directed this semiautobiographical film about Alex, a director (Donald Sutherland) who achieves overnight success with his debut effort and is confused and angst-ridden at the thought of his second project. An homage to Federico Fellini's classic tale of filmmaker's angst, 8 1/2, the film also serves as a tribute to creating cinema while parodying Hollywood's many excesses. Alex is deeply troubled by the future of his art, mired in confusion and mystery, and lost in a world he no longer recognizes. Mazursky skillfully combines surreal fantasy with biting satire as Alex attempts to navigate the world that has become a bizarre looking glass like Alice dropped into the mysterious Wonderland. Ellen Burstyn costars as Alex's wife, who quietly accepts her husband's eccentricities while shopping for a new home and attempting to live a normal life in Hollywood with their two young daughters, Amy (Meg Mazursky, the director's real-life daughter) and Nancy (Glenna Sargent). Alex's search for inspiration leads him on many bizarre journeys, including a trip to Italy, where he meets his cinematic idol, Federico Fellini (who appears as himself), goes on an acid trip with friends, and has a chance encounter with French star Jeanne Moreau, who appears in a marvelous fantasy sequence. Mazursky himself is hysterical in a small role as an overzealous producer.
