This afternoon Geoff and I watched Pans Labyrinth.
I’m still struggling what to make of it. The movie is very startling contrast between evil and innocence and there are all these different elements of escapism and a crossover of the awful reality of Ofelia’s life into her fantasy world.
There is a very interesting article over here called Escaping into the Real by Timothy Miller.
And a decent review on the Guardian.
Very worth watching, however rather violent in parts and a little disturbing.
