Alex in Wonderland

This fictional account of the personal and professional travails of a hotshot film director, played by Donald Sutherland, is partly admirable, partly realized, but also partly dull and somewhat deja vu to boot.

This fictional account of the personal and professional travails of a hotshot film director, played by Donald Sutherland, is partly admirable, partly realized, but also partly dull and somewhat deja vu to boot.

Sutherland is brought to a big studio after what must be presumed to be the sort of flop d’estime that has uncovered many a real-life counterpart. With wife, played superbly by Ellen Burstyn, and children, Meg Mazursky and Glenna Sargent, Sutherland attempts to retain his integrity amid the trappings of fame and too-expensive Beverly Hills living accommodations.

Shortly into the film, however, Sutherland’s character becomes as secondary as the various vignettes become all-too-overpowering. Perhaps Sutherland’s man never had much to begin with.
