Black & white psychedelia with sitar music by Ravi Shankar. Great cast, and Alice has a captivatingly blank stare throughout. It seems more correct to have this all in British accents as the American versions are somehow lacking authenticity, given the very British puns and things like treacle and so on.
Photographed beautifully by Ken Russell stalwart Dick Bush, this is, in places, a precursor to that heady pubescent langour of Picnic at Hanging Rock. The wordless opening sequence in particular is stunning. Too bad the script doesn't quite live up to the visuals, sticking perhaps too closely to Carroll's Victoriana bore-fest in places. .
