I probably have a real soft spot for this movie, since the one and only time I was in Hollywood was with my family as a kid when this movie was being made. But it wasn't just your typical movie location! Of course we all wanted to see Hollywood Blvd and got there very early in the morning. What we saw blew us away. Basically the entire Viet Nam war was taking place. Literally. There were tanks and bombs and Viet Cong prisoners and marines, and men in top hats and tails dancing on the rooftops (I don't remember that from Viet Nam, actually!), and Donald Sutherland all bearded and hippy looking, leading the "parade" crying his eyes out! I just sort of knew, even as a child that this was NOT your typical Hollywood scene! It was of course the famous Hollywood Blvd.-Viet Nam War dream sequence from Alex In Wonderland. The movie seemed to be following us around, since when we got to the airport, we saw, on the tarmac, ambulance and police and tons of people wondering around as if gassed, and bodies everywhere! Again... yes, a scene from "Alex"! I tried to wonder as we flew back to Boston, how all this was going to make a movie. In fact, it almost doesn't... but this wonderful mess of a movie is filled with imagery and ideas, and self-indulgent moments of enlightenment. It reminds me of a coffee shop out here. They make something called Missy's Mess. It's scrambled eggs with about 15 other ingredients thrown in. Actually I've been told that "Missy" throws in whatever looks good in front of her and just sort of fries it all up with lots of hot garlic, onions and hot sauce. It may look terrible, and you may not want to eat it every day, but oh, in the right mood... it's ambrosia! That is, I think the best description of Alex In Wonderland.Read more ›

Paul Mazursky's classic film comedy "Alex in Wonderland" has a cult following that should have kept remembering the overall consensus of critics that in all its homage to Fellini the film should only muster the nickname, "1-1/2." It is not very entertaining to the point of being slow, occasionally funny and only sometimes insightful, it is more so merely pretentious. It has not aged well as I can understand why its reputation has grown through the years as it was not available, but it can now be seen and to watch it intoxicated as audiences probably were expected to in 1970 may dull the senses enough to find it to be more enjoyable than it really is.

It was interesting but loose in its message. I like stories that tell an insightful and compassionate in an ordered way.
