Něco z Alenky [Alice]
Using a live actress to portray the oddly violent Alice and a vast array of stop-motion animated taxidermied animals and bones as the creatures of Wonderland, Švankmajer creates an Alice unlike anything I've ever seen before.
The creatures are scary and very unfriendly, all of them looking like they're on a 3 day cocaine bender with their wildly transfixed glass eyes. The White Rabbit even mirrors Jack Nicholson breaking down a door with an ax.
Unfortunately, after the initial shock wears off of what is unfolding before your eyes, the story becomes a little tiresome. We've all seen it before countless times and I find myself wishing most of the scenes were cut in half.
In conclusion, I recommend you see this film at least once, just to experience the horrors with your own eyes. You will NEVER forget it.
