Operation Screenshot (Films of the 2010s): Lew Xypher’s Malice in Lalaland (2010)

This is what I had to say about Malice in Lalaland when I included it on my best of 2010 list:

"Imagine if David Lynch, Terry Gilliam and Alex Cox got together to make an adult version of Alice in Wonderland and you would have Lew Xypher’s off the wall and surreal Malice in Lalaland. Produced by the ambitious Miss Lucifer Productions, shot on 35mm and starring Sasha Grey, Malice in Lalaland is, simply put, one of the best and most imaginative adult films since the golden era of the seventies. Featuring a fantastic score, startling animation and a wickedly delicious turn from Grey, Malice in Lalaland is an essential work for more adventurous and open-minded film-watchers. Keep a look-out especially from scene-stealing Andy San Dimas as the beautiful and brutal Black Queen."

My enthusiasm hasn't waned. I think this is one of the most visually striking and interesting films of the decade so far so I wanted to include it in this series.
