Pan’s Labyrinth

Or, more properly, El Laberinto del Fauno.

What a surreal, sublime movie. I watched it last night for the first time. I only wish I had seen it in the theater. It’s in Spanish, but you barely notice the subtitles if you don’t understand the language. I am a terrible movie reviewer, so I won’t bother to offer an analysis. But I highly urge you to watch it. Not appropriate for children, that’s for sure. An adult movie that reminds you a little of what it was like to be a kid. So hurry go rent if you haven’t seen it yet! Hurry, I say!

    Not appropriate for parents of small girls, if I’m any indication. A great movie, but really made me very sad. Taken in a one-two punch with Children of Men, my favorite movie of last year, I got pretty bummed out. Thank God those Autobots were able to defeat the evil forces of the Decepticons in this summer’s Transformers movie. I can’t take all these downbeat endings!

    Speaking of downbeat endings, you should totally check out No Country for Old Men if you liked The Road. In The Road, everything is helpless and doomed before you even begin the story. In NCFOM, it keeps seeming like everything will work out okay…

    It is a sad movie, but also redemptive in its way. and gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous. and has spanish ever sounded so lovely?

    I can’t wait to see NCFOM. The movie that finally gets me to the theater. those coen brothers get me every time. I may even have to read the book.
