Pan's Labyrinth

Pan's Labyrinth ★★★★★

"To me, politics or religion -- organized politics and organized religion -- are much more fairy tales than fairy tales. They're fantasy." --Guillermo del Toro, from his commentary

To me, this is del Toro's other masterpiece. The melding of cold reality and unnerving fantasy is just about perfect. Listening to his commentaries this week, I've been struck again and again by his clear devotion to his craft and the thought and planning that goes into even the tiniest moments and details in his films.
