Thoughts on Alice

Monday, October 18, 2010 4:42 PM By Simon

Jan Švankmajer, this freaky-ass Czech filmmaker and animator, made this freaky-ass Czech film adaption of Alice in Wonderland.

-It stars Kristýna Kohoutová, dubbed by Camilla Powers, as Alice, a stuffed exhibit as the White Rabbit, a sock as the Caterpillar, a puppet as the Hatter, a wind-up toy as the March Hare, and a cut-out playing card as the Red Queen and her court. And some entient slabs of meat.

-This is weird. This is really fucking weird. But it's still better than Tim Burton's version.

Like, weird in the bad way...or weird in the intriguing/good way? Haha

Robert: Weird in a good way. Like, if I had this on a piss-poor copy-of-a-copy VHS tape, I'd still watch it, and, in fact, it would be even better.
