A Masterpiece

Monday January 8, 2007

Saw Pan’s Labyrinth last night. It’s a masterpiece: Ivana Baquero’s performance, the art direction, the special effects, the storytelling, the music. It’s a film made by a film-maker at the height of his skills (Guillermo del Toro), which is surprising since to me it came rather out of the blue. I saw Cronos (13 years ago!), but thought it was really overrated and Hellboy and Blade II don’t sound that promising do they?

Anyway. See it. I haven’t felt so enthusiastic about a film in years.

Also quite enthusastic about this.
