Jan Švankmajer “Jabberwocky”

Remembered this from ages ago and thought I’d share.
Jan Švankmajer, a Czech filmmaker produced this short, stop motion to Lewis Carroll’s Jabberwocky. It’s really creepy, weird and beautiful. He describes it as:

“a Freudian record of the development of a child through all its stages: through homosexuality and Sado-Masochism to rebellion against the father”

If you like this look out for his Alice In Wonderland (feature), It’s wonderful.
