In December of 1970 Paul Mazursky released Alex in Wonderland – a film about a movie director struggling to follow up his successful debut film. Alex in Wonderland was Mazursky’s second film, following the great success of his 1969 debut Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice. Yes, Mazursky seems to have made a movie inspired by real life events.

Donald Sutherland stars as the title character and Ellen Burstyn plays his wife. Famed European directors Federico Fellini and Jeanne Moreau appear as themselves. Mazursky portrays a Hollywood exec. The film contains many strange dream sequences and garnered mixed reviews. Roger Ebert rather liked the movie in his March ’71 review. Take in the trailer below.
