Ratings & Reviews

  1. El Biffo's rating of the film Alice in Wonderland

    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.

  2. redux's rating of the film Alice in Wonderland

    This version is not interested in the wonder bits or the funny animals, only the subtext: the delirium of social rituals, as experienced by a Victorian woman-child, objectified and overdisciplined by definition, pushed to psychotic levels of frustration and boredom.

  3. Onbestendig's rating of the film Alice in Wonderland

  4. DK's rating of the film Alice in Wonderland

    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. .

  5. Richmond Hill's rating of the film Alice in Wonderland

    A nicely flinty realisation of this too-often filmed novel. It captures the trajectory well and provides a kind of 90 degree angle stance on the subject matter, despite some stalled moments.
