(Něco z Alenky, Jan Švankmajer 1988, Czechoslovakia/Switzerland/UK/West Germany, 86 min., Czech w/subtitles)

Švankmajer. Though he’d been crafting films since the 1960s, Švankmajer’s marvelously creepy 1988 adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland marked his breakthrough in the US. The meeting of artistic sensibilities is perfect: both Alices are masterpieces of dark, disturbing whimsy.
