Alice (1988)

directed by Jan Svankmajer 
with: Kristýna Kohoutová

This film is the visually-striking, Czech version, dark adaptation of the children's novel Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Surrealistic in principle, it combines live action and stop-motion animation to create a bizarre world full of fantastic characters of inexplicable behaviors. It is frightening at some points and relies on sound effects to be effective. Creative and original, this version of Carroll's novel is entertaining and confusing. Although some parts can be exasperating and tedious, both the beginning and ending are essential for full satisfaction. 

Must see for surrealism lovers. 
Recommended for people that like an alternative from Disney.  
Rating: 7.5/10
