I just watched this and what a disappointing piece of drivel. I can't imagine what Burton was thinking. There are some interesting ideas in the story approach the actual result is trash. The score is a joke. The only good thing - some of the sets, but the 'effects' were childish and overdone. I've seen many, many Alice films, but this was the worst (and that includes the porno version). Mia W. is a non-factor.
What a fabulous film. Dennis Potter was a great writer and there were several films made of his work, with many of the wonderful stock English actors/actresses. I first saw this on PBS way back and bought the video box set immediately. A wonderful companion piece to this is Pennies from Heaven, the Bob Hoskins first version, not that other thing.
