Cult Cut: ALICE (1988)

Brilliant Czech surrealist filmmaker/animator/madman Jan Svankmajer is such a no brainer for Cult Cut that I almost didn't think to post any of his work. He's been a huge influence on my work, whether you see it or not, I've written academic papers on his revolting art (art inspired to/for revolution)
His Cold War-era work is truly astounding, a testament to artistic will triumphing under an oppressive regime.  In 1988 he created ALICE (Neco z Alenky) a radical adaptation of Louis Carroll's classic surrealist masterpiece Alice in Wonderland.  It defies description. Check out the trailer is you are curious.

and if you are curiouser and curiouser ... check out the entire film after the jump.
