Tim Burton in Wonderland

16mm Shrine, Media Criticism

With Alice in Wonderland’s definitive style being whimsical and odd, was Tim Burton the correct choice to bring the story back to the big screen? While Burton is generally known for his darker, more disturbing brand of humor, his efforts in crafting both 2010’s Alice in Wonderland and 2016’s Alice Through the Looking Glass may prove to be rather more effective and interesting than one would initially believe.
