Topic: Manson is Lewis Carroll: Phantasmagoria
I have been looking out for this movie for a while now. I am a big fan of Lewis Carroll's warped opium created word, and I like to see which direction people take with it. Honestly, I think Manson will do it justice and be able to show a dark side to Lewis Carroll's creation. Though it has been done before by American McGee, I would think that Manson would add his own spin on things and tweak a few things here and there. Also, a transformation story sounds interesting.
I agree, that him hiring a magician to do special fx is a little over the top and more to gain the public's attention. Especially, when there are directors like Gondry who managed to do everything in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind with nothing more than different camera settings and sets.
Anyway, I am looking forward to this. Any other views?
