This version of Alice is often described as dark or surreal. I do not think that of it, but it was strange that they made no effort at all to dress up as the animal characters---they were all just portrayed as people. So it did seem as if Alice had been dropped into an insane asylum, rather than chasing the rabbit down the rabbit-hole to a magical place (in this case the rabbit-hole was actually a tunnel that changed into a corridor in an abandoned house, to a museum type setting where she came across the "Dodo". And in most scenes she is talking to herself asking questions (as in the book), but she answers all her own questions! I was annoyed that the main scene with the Cheshire Cat was left out, not to mention that it was just a regular cat/no grin!
But I really liked the extras on this DVD, which made up for what was lacking in the movie: including the 1903 version (unfortunately commentary could not be turned off, but luckily I have on a different DVD without the commentary), the 1965 episode of Alice for the television series"The Wednesday Play" which explored Dobson's obsession of Alice, and behind-the-scenes of the making of the soundtrack by Ravi Shankar.
