Another early review has appeared for Pan's Labyrinth and, like the last review, comes chalk full of warm compliments.
Pan's Labyrinth Review
The good people over at AICN have recently received an early report for Pan's Labyrinth after the 'reviewer' screened the film over at Frightfest.
However, whereas Backbone is more of an old-fashioned ghost story, Pan’s Labyrinth is like the best children’s fairy tale. The key to fairy tales is that they work as allegories about the end of childhood, coming of age and the loss of innocence. That’s why they resonate with generation after generation. Pan’s Labyrinth is the 21 Century’s fairy tale, to be shown again and again to generation after generation.
It sounds simple, but like The Devil’s Backbone and all the best films, Pan’s only unravels its secrets in the hours and days after you’ve seen it. It stays with you, sticking under your skin...
From the incredible opening shot, to an ending that has the perfect blend of pathos and a sense of hope that lifts your spirits, Pan’s Labrynth is the perfect film that constantly surprises, always intrigues and never fails to hold your attention.
The review goes on to talk more positives on the film and the director. You can check out the entire early screening report on Pan's Labyrinth over at AICN.
Pan's Labyrinth is currently set for a limited release on December 29th.
