Wonderland USA

Director: Zoe Beloff (1989)

B&W. 6 minutes. 35 mm.

Starring: John Cale, Eszter Balint, Taylor Mead, Everett Quinton.

Losely based on the classic story Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Caroll. Cale plays the writer.


"Lured by a lonely writer, Alice finds herself falling into a wonderland of decadence and despair; a New York nether world of lost souls and cut-rate charlatans hawking broken dreams and cheap perversions. Set in the ruins of Coney Island and Times Square, the film brings to life the underside of Lewis Caroll's classic."
