Moria gives it 5 out of 5 stars, calling it a "work of bizarre genius". io9 calls it "The weirdest Alice in Wonderland movie ever made" and says, "It's an interesting experience for anyone familiar with the novel, but I certainly would not recommend it as an introduction to the story." The Telegraph says, "This Alice's glorious proliferation of magical transformations works like a charm on anyone who values the imagination". DVD Beaver says, "What the Czech animator Jan Svankmajer does in "Alice" seems more akin to alchemy than moviemaking. His is an art of dark conjuring, brought to life more by the wave of a wand than the slap of a clapper board." It has a critics score of 100% at Rotten Tomatoes.
