Pan's Labyrinth

Pan's Labyrinth ★★★★½

This film reminds us how important the stories we read and experience as children remain important to us, even into adulthood. Too often we are quick to dismiss such stories as fairy tales, but Guillermo del Toro shows us how much they touch our hearts. The effect they have on people is far more powerful than an fascist regime, after all one of the first objects they burn away are books full of ideologies that do not match their own.
