    Pan's Labyrinth

    ★★★★★

    Pan's Labyrinth is a masterpiece through and through. It's a treasure, a jewel of cinema. A work of outstanding artistry. It's daring, beyond imaginative, wondrous, thoughtprovoking,...and full of heart. It's an immediate classic and one of my all time favourites.

Every rewatch I'm fully blown away again.

    All I have to say for now:

    Pan's Labyrinth holds the record of longest standing ovation at Cannes films festival, with a whopping 22 minutes. Amazing.

I had a fondness of many aspects of the film; the realism, its authentic feel. Everything about most the characters and the places felt like actual existent. The personal issues the characters experience,…

    My first ever Gus Van Sant film! Absolutely adored it! The film's strongest feature is its simplicity. The embedded simplicity which flows through every other aspect of the filmmaking truly makes the film shine and stand out in its own unique way. 10 seconds into the film's runtime and I'm already laughing hysterically. These unexpected moments, which catch you off guard, only add up to the enjoyment. They can make you laugh, make you feel uncomfortable, sad,..etc What I personally…
