Labyrinth ★★★½

Surprisingly solid film that works due both to the fact that it is 100% earnest without a trace of irony, and that there are serious and adult themes running just beneath the surface. Its pacing is predictably episodic, but that doesn't diminish the fun and wonder. A little more character development with Sarah at the beginning would have made the emotional impact of the climax pay off more, but overall, I dug it.
