Alice (Region B)

Type: New Blu-Ray

Jan Svankmajer’s Alice is a creepy and disturbing adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s original vision. Combining a live-action Alice (Kristyna Kohoutova) with a stop-motion Wonderland filled with threatening, bizarre characters, the film brilliantly marries a sly visual wit with piercing psychological insight. Presented here fully uncut and in its original Czech-language version for the very first time, this comprehensive release also gathers together a selection of rare and fascinating Alice-related short films.
