Watched Pan's Labyrinth. Excellent. I was expecting more of a horror movie, and certainly one far more violent (not complaint though). I've got to admit, after hearing over and over how explicit and gratuitous the film is, I watch it expecting something along the lines of Saving Private Ryan with fantasy creatures and instead get a very, very sad story with great acting and script. If you haven't seen this gem yet I highly recommend it.
•••Spoiler: Is it just me or was anyone else surprised that the Faun wasn't malicious? I guess that make sense in my interpretation of everything being in her imagination, including the part where she's dying and meets the king. She wouldn't imagine an evil faun. Really the whole story was just so sad, the little girl had nowhere to turn to but her books in a really f***ed up situation.
I wish they made movies of this caliber more often.
