    I'm so happy that a movie this weird on so many different levels(both good and bad) can be this endlessly enjoyable and rewatchable. I love this even though at parts it falls apart terribly, it is both incredibly complex yet very accessible, refined and kind of messy at the same time. That's how I tend to like my art a lot of the time

  • Pan's Labyrinth

    Something about watching Opelia get a very literal call to action for her fantasy quest, guided by a fairy, just one scene after watching her adoptive father kill two people for no reason..........

    Also this film has some incredible cgi and some really bad cgi but most importantly it has the blue Twilight filter so that evens that out
