Director Alex Morrison (Donald Sutherland) has made his first movie and stands on the verge of stardom… but has no idea what to do next. The Paul Mazursky-Larry Tucker duo followed up on their hit Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice (1969) with a film that possibly reflected their own doubts regarding the future of their careers. The tone is quite Fellini-esque in the style of 8½ (1963), with a similar lead character who sees his world with great imagination. Unfortunately, this is a pretty dull film of its time whose connection to its classic predecessor is too obsessive.
