An exciting new film – Pan’s Labyrinth – opens in New York and other assorted locales today.
For science fiction, fairy tale/horror-ish or off-the-track film lovers, it looks very very promising. And the reviews are tremendous.
It’s by Mexican director Guillermo Del Toro of The Devil’s Backbone and Hellboy. He’s a horror buff and highly respected in film circles. Although I haven’t seen any of his stuff, based on this one’s trailer the cinematography looks fab. Also, the original score by Javier Navarrete is very pleasing to the ear.
Okay, I’ll wait half a year for it to get here…sigh.
