Alex Leonce’s review published on Letterboxd:
This film is why I adore del Toro as a filmmaker. You can clearly tell that he puts in 100% of his creativity, hard work and passion onscreen, and it shows.
Dark, emotional, imaginative, original and captivating, Pan's Labyrinth is one of the best movies I've witnessed.
The storytelling, cinematography, score, performances (especially from Ivana Baquero), and that gut punch of a finale, all excel beautifully.
