I don't think anything is ever going to top Jan Švankmajer's unique version of Carroll's Alice and Tim Burton sadly hasn't really made a decent film since, well....um... Ed Wood? Yeah, Corpse Bride was quite good and I didn't mind Big Fish either, but it's been a while since his storytelling was on par with his visuals!
As most will attest Burton's movies for the most part are visually stunning: Sweeney Todd, Scissorhands, Sleepy Hollow and even Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to name but a few (We do not bear talk about or even mention the "Ape" movie though!! God in heaven, what a colossal f#ck up that was!)
So yeah, his take on Alice and Wonderland again "looks" fantastic! I mean just take a gander at those images below:
But his obvious interest in the visual aesthetic will probably once again supersede everything else, leaving us with an eye-popping but overall "flat" experience.
