The definitive version of Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
Though [Jan Svankmajer] strips away all sweetness and light, he does not violate Lewis Carroll's story.
It takes us back to a time in the history of movies when audiences responded to the images on screen with a combination of awe and fear, when in submitting to them, we felt as if we were submitting to a spell.
Not necessarily for young kids, this is a surrealist version with a great deal of attention accorded to objects.
Alice adaptations tend toward whimsical fairy tale wonder, but a director given to animating not only stop-motion puppets but raw meat was bound to bring something more to the project,
This is the only filmed version of the material... that persuasively places us right in the middle of a child's nightmare.
Nothing in Svankmajer's Alice is inappropriate per se [...] and Svankmajer does stay true to the particulars of Carroll's book. But he also put his personal stamp on Alice, by literalizing on film a lot of what reads as fantasy on the page.
Its glorious proliferation of magical transformations works like a charm on anyone who values the imagination.
a triumph of the creative imagination, reordering both Lewis Carroll's original text and the drabness of the material world into a disturbing wonderland of textures and tactility
Alice is macabre, haunting, and very true to the spirit of Carroll's book, exploring the marvels and fears of a child's imagination.
Svankmajer's surrealist adaptation is a welcome antidote to the cute and cuddly Disneyfication of Carroll's iconic tale.
For adults trying to remember that first acid trip, it's a winner.
Blissfully bizarre! Exactly how Lewis Carroll would have envisioned it had he been a crack addicted taxidermist with a fetish for sock puppets.
A young girl visits a wonderful land of white rabbits, mad hatters and skull-faced animals with razor sharp teeth in this dark and surreal stop-motion animation adaptation of ALICE IN WONDERLAND. The whimsical flavor of Lewis Carroll blends astoundingly well with Jan Svankmajer's nightmare seasonings, like mixing pure cane sugar with white powder heroin.
Essentially an art house interpretation of Alice In Wonderland. It's extremely bizarre and dark compared to most adaptions. The stop motion animation fits really well with the style of the film. It's very much an unknown treasure and i'd recommend it to anyone who loves the story or just likes bizarre, demented kid's movies.
I have to admit that I tried to watch it more than three times without sucess - due to the stop motion animation, it can be a bit tedious and tiredness. After maybe the third try, I watched it entirely and it ws a pleasant surrealist experience. Pretty interesting.
