Critic Reviews for Alice In Wonderland

There is a place for the BBC's Alice in Wonderland, but for me, it's more for historical significance and a quite impressive gathering of respected actors in one film.

A melancholy and, in places, excruciatingly slow take on the tale with virtually all the comedic moments pared away.

Audience Reviews for Alice In Wonderland

Young Alice falls asleep on a riverbank and dreams of a Wonderland full of nonsense characters and events. This BBC television version of "Wonderland" has no anthropomorphic animals or colorful sets---the White Rabbit is just a guy and the Cheshire Cat is a real house cat, and the movie's in black and white in natural settings. Unexpectedly, the story turns more dreamlike thanks to this restraint, and Ravi Shankar's hazy sitar score gives the production an additional psychedelic sheen.
