Alice in Wonderland

A place to put my many thoughts on many subjects, from movies to books, from reality to fantasy, and anything in between.

You know, the real story of Alice in Wonderland is pretty messed up and actually quite disturbing, I know because I read it, and towards the end of it, I was so affected and disturbed by the story that I was just rushing through it because I just wanted to be through with it.

It's strange though that, although the original story is messed up, some of the adaptations that have come out of it are actually quite beautiful, my favorite one being the 2010 live-action adaptation, the one featuring Johnny Depp, a rather dark adaptation of it but a beautiful one nonetheless.

To paraphrase Boromir from the first Lord of the Rings movie, "it's strange, that so much darkness and beauty, should come out of something so strange."

The End
