the czech's alice

i sure loves me some stop-motion... last night i watched czech filmmaker jan svankmajer's alice and was blown away.

the film is strange, trippy and down-right fabulous. i dare to say: svankmajer's version of
alice and wonderland is probably most true to lewis carroll's vision. i love the props - very cabinet of dr. caligari.

below is a short clip where
alice first enters wonderland. warning: there is graphic use of taxidermy.

{ they actually have elevators like that in prague - minus the shelves of creepery. }

more light-hearted
another short stop motion film by the same film-maker :
