      Re: Pan's Labyrinth

      This is one of the best films of the year. I really don't want to give anything away, but it combines war and fantasy in a way you've never seen before. At once a beautiful and haunting picture. Simply amazing.

      I'm still thinking about it.

                  I saw a preview for this some time ago and I am completely intrigued by this film. I hope it comes somewhere near me so I can see it in the theatre - it looks like an in the theatre movie....

                      According to the website it is playing in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago and New York. It will be expanding to more markets next month.

                        It just opened yesterday and some Pacific and AMC theaters in the Southern California area. I know it is playing in the valley and at the Arc Light theaters in Hollywood. I plan to see it as soon as I can.

                          Re: Pan's Labyrinth

                          OK so I finally watched it this evening and it is definitely one of Guillermo Del Toro's best films -- if you enjoyed this one, I would recommend also renting his "The Devil's Backbone" (which explores similar themes, but more along the lines of a ghost story than of a fantasy).

                          Pan's Labyrinth was just fantastic, and NOT for the faint of heart. This is a brutal movie in the "real life" elements-- and the fantasy elements are incredibly dark as well. No cutesy characters anywhere, so don't go in expecting any... And definitely do not take your children to see this movie I mean, I've seen a lot worse gore and violence-wise, but it's not a kid's movie at all.

                          The title is odd, considering the literal spanish translation of El Laberinto del Fauno should be "The Faun's Labyrinth".... there's a faun, but his name isn't Pan. I'm wondering why they did that....

                          Anyway, what I really liked was
                          Spoiler
                          the ending of the film - how it was left rather ambiguous whether she had imagined the whole fantasy world or not (though, of course, "It was real" and "it was imaginary" are NOT the only two options!!!).

                          Guillermo Del Toro himself interprets the film as being all real -- I'm not going to go into the whole thing here, but the best director's interview I have read on the subject is at http://www.twitchfilm.net/archives/008507.html . The director left three little "clues" to let you know that HE thinks the fantasy world is all real (read the interview), but it can be interpreted another way. That's the beauty of this film -- it is so multilayered that you can interpret the symbolism of the characters and the fantasy world for yourself.

                          There are a lot of idiots on the IMDB board that are talking about... "well, if the director thinks it's real, it's real!!! End of story!!" Sorry, but that is total crap. If you can back up what you say, then the director's intent, while interesting from a filmmaking standpoint, has very little or nothing to do with whether an interpretation is "correct".

                          Certainly, asking whether it was real or imagined, or some of the fantasy was real, and some imagined, or whether it was all imagined (even the "war" parts), etc. etc. are certainly all valid explorations and can lead to wildly varying, equally valid interpretations.


                          Anyway, go see it, you'll be thinking about it for a while. One of the few films (like Donnie Darko) that I wanted to watch again immediately after viewing.

                            Re: Pan's Labyrinth

                            A few friends and I ended up heading to the Arclight yesterday to see the film, and what a wonderful film it was. I have to agree with the fact that the girl's fantasy was just a fantasy. However, still a moving and touching film.

                            However, there's one thing that irked me:
                            Spoiler
                            If the fantasy was real, why couldn't the captain see the faun? Yes, he saw the door, but no faun.


                            We also loved our ArcLight experience (see: Real Butter on the Popcorn, actual ushers, no cell ringing, always a good seat, superb sound quality, etc.). Much better than the crap they call a 'movie theater' up here.

                              damn, I going to have to wait until the 12 when it opens in Ontario, granted it's only a week away, and I've been waiting quite a while to finally see it, but [veruca salt] I WANT IT NOOOOOOOOOW[/veruca salt]
