Jan Svankmajer, the Czech master of animation, has fulfilled a lifetime ambition in this interpretation of Alice in Wonderland. Svankmajer's Alice remains true to Carroll's original, but bears the stamp of his own distinctive style and obsessions in this combination of animation and live action filmmaking. "Brilliantly inventive...a piercing, original vision" (Terrence Rafferty, The New Yorker).
