Něco z Alenky

Jan Švankmajer Czechoslovakia, 1987

RENO NISMARA.'s rating of the film Alice

"alice thought to herself... alice thought to herself 'now you will see a film... made for children... perhaps... ' but, I nearly forgot... you must... close your eyes... otherwise... you won't see anything..." no matter how good, how gothic, or how imaginative you think tim burton is, his reimagination of lewis carroll's alice in wonderland will not exceed jan svankmajer's. a magical work from a true surrealist.
