These events include Alice stepping through a mirror and the appearances of the White Knight, Tiger Lily and the talking flowers, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the Walrus and the Carpenter, and the Red King.

Time marches on its stomach! Ah-haha!
It's an army that marches on its stomach!
The March Hare:
Odd sort of army, marching on its stomach. I don't like the idea, yuck!

Yeah, maybe it's got its faults (Looking Glass scenes added in inexplicably, whatever), but by God this is the trippiest film ever made! Hours and hours of madness! It's like you're in a dream that takes control of you. The grass and the trees are so green, the colours are so amazingly vivid, the camerawork is so - melty? - and everything just flows together in the weirdest, most unreal way. So enjoyable. Everything is happy and crazy, just like Lewis Carroll intended it to be. Live a little, just like Alice! Dive into it! I ended up imagining I was Alice and walking in and out of these magical places for hours. What a druggy film - the caterpillar, a thousand references, sentences mangled and regurgitated as inspired poetry, rainbow colours, hundreds of characters, the list goes on.
I love this film! Watch it! Lock yourself away with it!
