Quote from Alice in Wonderland (2010).
In the opinion of a humble literature student and an avid film geek, Tim Burton’s obsessively detailed, delicious-looking Disney classic is the most loyal adaptation there is of the drug-laden master narrative of Lewis Carroll’s ‘children’s’ tale.
It has been six years since the movie made waves at the box office, which is three lifetimes’ worth in context of the development of visual effects. And yet, the film still looks impeccable: the colors of its frames, the appropriately dreamy texture of its foggy but steadfast narrative, the beautiful insanity of its characters (we all know there is NOTHING Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter cannot accomplish as actors), to Danny Elfman’s rousing score; everything is a delight.
