5.0 out of 5 stars Unsettling Alice, 30 Mar 2011
This review is from: Alice (DVD + Blu-ray) [1988] (Blu-ray)
If you've seen any of Jan Svankmajer's films before you will not be disappointed - if you haven't, prepare yourself for a deeply disturbing, grimly amusing and grotesque 'take' on 'Alice'. Without compromising the spirit of the original, Svankmajer has used 'stop-go' animation and live action, mixed with broken toys and ephemera to produce a film you won't easily forget and should not really be shown to children (a bit like the book, really). Who would have thought an old sock could be so unsettling?

Ex-King Zog obviously hasn't seen the new Blu-ray (which was still being created as of the date of his review), but here are reactions from people who have:
