Pan’s Labyrinth January 28, 2007

Checked out Pan’s Labyrinth with Karen yesterday, and I thought it was pretty good. Not sure if it lived up to the hype, but to tell the truth, don’t think many movies do.  The story was original, and the acting was great all around. Visually stunning, and it has a no-holds barred violent portrayal of Spain after World War II which never really feels over the t0p and almost seems necessary. Guillermo del Toro is a very good director and is great at telling stories through film, as he does in this movie.  With all the popcorn, fantasy movies that have been coming out lately, it was nice to see something that had a nice blend of make-believe, and the hardcore truth of our world. I would definitely recommend people to see it, subtitles and all (you wouldn’t believe how many people wont see subtitled movies, no matter how good they are, although the Spanish-speaking faun kept throwing me off a bit. Dont know what I expected, but just seemed weird to me).
