So crafty and creepy and malevolent and joyous, with grubby textures that get under your fingernails and toothsome, clackity tactility. Gives your eyes a real scouring delight. All the repetition and object lessons are an odd comfort for one with OCD. A truly oneiric adaptation of a childhood recollection. Never before has the White Rabbit been such a bad influence!
A worthy adaptation of Alice. Highly creative in the stop-motion and the sounds used in the film are somehow very pleasing. For example the munching on wood or the butter spreading on the watch. Only one annoying this about this is the constant "said..." after a character has spoken.
A glorious, unrestrained fever-dream of a film that I watched in mad, rapt delight. Svankmajer's Wonderland triggers an instant recognition that suggests a fidelity to Carroll's own vision of the place, undiluted by the niceties the conscious mind likes to impose to try to civilize the products of its source. The only thing better would be a live action version with Tom Waits as Hatter... maybe Nick Cage as Hare.
