Alice in Wonderland (BBC Peter Sellers)




Alice in Wonderland, is the haunting 1966 BBC Television version written and directed by Jonathan Miller, and starring Peter Sellers, Sir John Gielgud, Sir Michael Redgrave, Wilfrid Brambell, Peter Cook, Alan Bennett, John Bird, Leo McKern, and Anne-Marie Mallik as Alice. Jonathan Millers startingly imaginative masterpiece was shot in black and white, and captures the menacing atmosphere of Lewis Carroll s narrative with a dream-like editing schematic, actors dressed not in costumes but in period clothes, and a jarring, seductive, beautiful score by Ravi Shankar. This Alice in Wonderland is like no other version you ll see of the Lewis Carroll classic Review Almost every scene in Alice in Wonderland keeps us off our feet visually, aurally, logically, emotionally - just as we are in our own dreams - in a sustained effort by Miller that s remarkable. This isn t just the single most intriguing version of Alice in Wonderland I ve ever seen - it s one of the best English films from the 1960s --DVD Talk
