Jan Svankmajer's Alice Heading to Blu-ray

Posted February 4, 2014 06:25 PM by Webmaster

First Run FeaturesIndependent U.S. distributors First Run Features will bring to Blu-ray Czech director Jan Svankmajer's Alice (1988), starring Kristýna Kohoutová. The preliminary release date set by the distributors is April 15th.

When Alice follows the White Rabbit into Wonderland, so begins this dream expedition into the astonishing landscape of childhood, through many dangerous adventures, and ultimately to Alice's trial before the King and Queen of Hearts.

Czech animator Jan Svankmajer has created a masterpiece of cinema, a strikingly original interpretation of Lewis Carroll's classic tale. Svankmajer's Alice remains true to the absurdity of Carroll's original, but bears the stamp of his own distinctive style and obsessions. Combining techniques of animation and live action, he gives a new and fascinating dimension to the classic tale of childhood fantasies.

Called it!!

I reckon this means I'll be holding onto my BFI blu-ray. Which is totally fine with me.

Very cool. I can't wait to see how this and the version from BFI compare.

Already got the import from the UK. Interesting movie. Not one I'm in a hurry to watch again, but not one I regret grabbing.

Great news, but I hope we'll see more of Svankmajer's works in the future on BD.

Schlagermeister, I seriously doubt this will be better than the BFI release. I'm not knocking First Run Features by any means, it's just that the BFI release is great, both technically and supplementally speaking. If, however, the US version will fix the audio sync problems (for some reason BFI opted to keep them intact even as they acknowledged the issue), I will give it a shot.

I bought the uk BD a while back and the PQ was terrific and the stop animation fantastic but the film itself...well. Let's just say that when Alice uttered the words "said the rabbit" for the one thousand time in the first 30 minutes or so I just couldn't take it and had to turn the bloody thing off!

Good to see this will get US distribution. It's an odd but peculiarly interesting film and the current British Blu-ray includes a few worthwhile bonus shorts in HD (along with another that's sadly on the DVD only).

The BFI edition looks wonderful, however, plus it is region-free and reasonably priced, so unless there are several really tempting new bonus features I won't be buying this new edition.
