Entertainment Reviews:

Sight and Sound - 07/01/1991
"...ALICE is richly stocked in character pleasures..."
New York Times - 08/03/1988
"...Extraordinary....ALICE, as it unearths the fears that animate dreams and nightmares, is definitely a film for adults..."
Los Angeles Times - 02/17/1989
"...Svankmajer offers a clutch of stop-motion monsters that might have emerged from the paintings of Heironymus Bosch..."
Total Film - 06/01/2011
4 stars out of 5 -- "[The] stream of consciousness flows against a live-action/stop-motion dreamscape alive with the undead, amplified by startling sound design."

Product Description:

Czech animator Jan Svankmajer's surreal version of the Lewis Carroll fantasy, using puppets, clay animation and live-action. 180 degrees removed from the famous Disney version.

Plot Synopsis:

An unusual dramatization of a classic children's story, from Czech master animator Jan Svankmajer.
This loose retelling of Lewis Carroll's "Alice in Wonderland" dives into the story's dark psychological dimensions. By seamlessly combining live action with toy objects and animation, Svankmajer creates a surreal dream world unlike any other presented on film.
