This tale has been told a thousand times, it seems, but not like this. Svankmajers vision is so dark and twisted, Lewis Carroll wouldve had nightmares. Using a mixture of live action and stop motion animation, the director creates an uneasy atmosphere, and the plot just kind of drifts along without the traditional Alices stubbornness and attitude. This Alice is almost happy to be lost, just observing the surreal, Lynchian, patchwork creatures that guide and toy with her, knowing that itll all be over, all too soon.
When Alice follows the White Rabbit into Wonderland, so begins this dream expedition into the astonishing landscape of childhood, through many dangerous adventures, and ultimately to Alice’s trial before the King and Queen of Hearts.
