Alice in Wonderland 2010 (Tim Burton)

Certainly, this is not the story that Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832-1898) wrote in 1862.  However, I believe that he would approve since one cannot expect a story to stay the same in the telling after 148 years.  Director Burton has taken Alice to the next level with emphasis on the nonsense-poem, Jabberwocky.  The result is frabjous.  Throughout, Burton has paid tribute to the original with many references to the Dodgson/Lewis Carroll work.  And kudos to Danny Elfman for a wonderful score.  [JAM 3/7/2010]
