Alice In Wonderland Review

583 words - 3 pages

Tim Burton has directed many amazing films one his most recent ones being “Alice in Wonderland”. Tim has many techniques that are unique to his personal style that are shown in this film. Not only the way that this was filmed, but also the idea of the film is distinct to Burton’s director techniques. Burton made a film off the movie Alice in Wonderland, and put his own spin on things, Alice revisits wonderland 13 years later, revisiting her old friends and realizing her true destiny. Alice is caught between two worlds, the real world and her dream world, that she later learns that both worlds had interlocking meanings. You can tell that Tim directed this film, because of the settings, themes, and special affects.
This movie is a very enjoyable one. Tim Burton ...view middle of the document...


Tim Burton movies are one of a kind mainly because of his settings. He is known for always having dark, dreary settings, which is clearly shown in Alice in Wonderland. Most of the scenes are gloomy and dull, except for when Tim decides to incorporate some accent colors into the scenes. When Alice first enters Wonderland, the background is very grey and dark, but there are accents of blues and reds in flower friends and animals. Also, when Alice has tea with the mad hatter and the rabbit, everything is monotone and dreary, except the mad hatters red hair, red lips, red socks and green eyes. When Alice first meets the white princess, Alice’s red dress pops along with the green concoction that the rabbit is trying to make. Burton adds pops of color to scenes while the rest is neutral to add points of interest. He does this by zooming in on his footage as well.
Not only does setting play a huge role in Burton’s techniques, but also his filming techniques are also greatly noted. He uses close up’s to show the emotion of the characters through out the movie. In the scene where the red queen is questioning who stole her tarts it is very apparent. Not only does he get close up with the characters to really feel their emotion but he also uses counter shots and reaction shots while characters are interacting. This way of filming allows you to see the feelings of all the characters even the surrounding ones. In this scene Burton also uses many different camera angles. He uses low angle shots when looking up at the red queen to show her power when she is interrogating her frogs. He also uses high angle shots from the Queens point of view when looking down at the frogs to show how they have no power and how frightened they are of her.
