Frankie’s review published on Letterboxd:
The older and older I get, the more I relate to Ofelia. Even though I have nowhere near the same struggles or troubles as her, I believe that myself and others are drawn into the mystical and fantasy elements of the world. One of the biggest things that bring happiness, vulnerability, and the true human experience (both the good and the bad), I am able to find through film, people, and my distractions. I believe Guillermo Del Toro has created a timeless classic that still holds prominence and has no sign of becoming any less significant in the years to follow.
P.S. As much as I love revisiting my favorite films, I would also love some recommendations. Please drop some in the comments or on this list.
