Pan’s Labyrinth

Man, I just finished watching Pan’s Labyrinth on DVD.  What a beautifully brutal movie. Don’t be misled by the fairy-tale concept (young girl must complete three tasks to become the long-lost princess of a fairy kingdom), this movie is not for kids. It is full of torture, death,  and scary monsters of the old-fashioned, horrific fairy-tales kind along with the more modern fascist kind. Yet, it is a beautiful tale, and very effective (as I wipe the tears off my face).  Most of all, it’s a great story told with such a visual sense that I can’t recommend it enough.  Absolutely beautiful.
