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. I always wanted to write a long, detailed, thought out review for it..but I just don't know yet what to write. My brain just can't fully comprehend what it is. 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.
