I Learned a Few Things
12 February 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This version of Alice in Wonderland tries to tell us how Lewis Carroll came to create the characters he did. After a very British beginning, he tells the story of the young girl to some young girls. Of course, it starts with the trip into the rabbit hole. Alice follows, carelessly, running willy nilly through brightly decorated caverns. She has the usual encounters with growing and shrinking, making it hard to get through doors. What follows is quite good. The stop action Wonderland characters are striking. Some are grotesques; some are quite tame. But all of them have been created with thoughtfulness and skill. The story isn't as good as the visuals. I now must confess, that having read this book several times, I can't say I've ever enjoyed it. I think that I should try some critical works and they might assist me in the allegorical features. i did learn about Disney's successful efforts to keep this film out of release to promote his animated piece.
