Mark Garrett's rating of the film Alice in Wonderland

Funny how telling the film is. Disney's film certainly has tinges of darkness and counter-culture. There's the oysters scene and the oily, darkened landscapes, Alice in a tears in a dark forest, but there's also just so many obvious "scenes" that look as if they're supposed to be Disney shorts. These don't mesh with the overall look and occasionally druggy solipsism, creating a nullification of anything weird.
