Pan's Labyrinth


Recommended Posts

I saw it and thought it was pretty good; although I'd stop short of saying it's a MUST see. It was very different & creative. One of the things I noted was that the "violence" was very untypical of Hollyewood (i.e., when shot in the head, a character's head didn't explode) but most of the folks in the theater where I saw if were incredibly shocked by it (for example, when the Major's face was cut). There was an inordinate amount of shooting in the film...I guess the Spanish had unlimited bullets in the waning period of WWII...

I found it interesting that the only American in the movie played the two creatures (Pan & the creature at the table full of food) and that he was a voice-over.

Overall, very dark & creative. Thought-provoking. The ending was very Narnia-esque.
