Author Neil Gaiman and illustrator Dave McKean (both of Sandman comic book fame) join forces once again for this dark, original and visually arresting fantasy. Following in the grand tradition of Alice in Wonderland and The Wizard of Oz, this mixture of live-action, puppetry and computer animation follows a dissatisfied young girl from her daily grind (in this case, the overstimulated world of a Cirque du Soleil-style family circus) to a menacing fairy tale world stocked with odd creatures. For some, this multimedia collage may rest a few notches below the classics; but for fans of Gaiman and McKean, this one will become a cult favorite. 101 minutes PG.
