Pan's Labyrinth (2006)

Indeed, a "fairy tale for adults." Don't bring your kids to watch this; it's no Labyrinth. This film has been touted as one of the best movies of the year and that's about right. I can't say I even had one complaint about it aside from maybe having more scenes in the fantasy realm. But it's hard to complain when everything works together so well.

I made a special effort to make sure I saw this on the big screen and I'm delighted I caught it. Watching it on a rinky dink television wouldn't have done it justice.
