Bohemian Alex Morrison has just finished directing his first feature length movie. In its previews, the movie is considered a critical, artistic and surefire commercial success. As such, Alex seemingly has his choice of what his next project will be. Alex has a few thoughts in his mind, such as a biopic of Lenny Bruce, or a movie about a black uprising in Los Angeles. As he makes the rounds both in the Hollywood community and European movie centers for ideas, he fantasizes about movie scenarios of those everyday situations he is in. These fantasies are influenced by his movie idols, some who he meets such as Italian director Federico Fellini and French actress Jeanne Moreau. Concurrently, he is considering what to do about his personal life. He, his wife Beth and their two daughters live a middle class lifestyle. He is wondering whether it makes sense to "move up", which means that movie making not only has to achieve his main purpose of saying something meaningful, but also has to be commercially successful. That need for commercial success may ultimately take artistic control out of his hands. - IMDb

Just bought this movie, partly because I like Donald Sutherland as an actor. This is an early movie of his and his acting style is already evident. Ellen Burstyn plays his wife and she looks so young I would not have recognized her. The tub scene- and how the film begins- with dad and Nancy (Glenna Sergent- note spelling) is intimate, with them both in the tub facing each other, and because of the setting I assumed that Glenna must at least be wearing bottoms, but when she is lifted out of the tub, that is not the case! I think the emphasis is the close bond between father and daughter, as well as a way to portray Sutherland's character as very liberal. After all, the time setting is the 70's. A scene that caught me by surprise is when the family is returning from an outing in Mexico. At the border, the customs agent insists on searching their car, and in the meantime they all get out of the car, and Nancy has to use the restroom, but of course there is not. The surprise is that she can't hold it and the camera abruptly captures her from behind standing with her legs apart peeing through her panties. It is probably faked but the action looks very authentic, and Glenna seems to take some amusement at having to act this out because she does a little dance while relieving herself. The other daughter is played by Meg Mazursky. It is too bad neither girl stayed in the business as actresses because I would liked to have seen more of their talent.... more
