Hauntingly disturbing
11 October 2000 | by (NY) – See all my reviews

As a child, I was fortunate enough to have taped this version of Alice from a PBS showing. The real beauty of this particular version stems from the fact that it was filmed in a straight run-through. This allowed for all sorts of sordid images that remain with me, even today. A few examples: Tweedledee and Tweedledum dripping with sweat while dancing around; the seven-year-old Alice smoking backstage between scenes; the prop used as the baby that would not stop crying being thrown around. There are also some instances of shear brilliance, as in the performance of the white rabbit or the mock turtle's rendition of "Beautiful Soup." All in all, this telling of a classic seems to have endured better than the others, surely moreso than the Disney version.
