A Maze-In Stories

El Laberinto del Fauno (Pan’s Labyrinth)
A Pan That Needs Even Mo Flash

Pan’s Labyrinth has gots to be the mos misleading movie title in years. With about 1/4th of the entire picture dedicated to said Lab of Pan, a more apt title woulda been The Little Spanish Girl Who Sometimes Escapes Into A World of Fantasy Cause She’s Trapped In The Mountains With Her Beyond Evil Facist Stepfather Who Loves Beating The Fork Outta People. The movie is yearning to be a mythical masterpiece, but it’s too darn busy being entrenched in a post-war melodrama, albeit, a very enjoyable one, to capitalize on its full potential. There’s only room for one movie here and this one’s got two of em sorta runnin concurrently. And it’s this overcrowdedness that keeps it from being a masterpiece. I felt the same exact way after peepin Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s A Very Long Engagement, but then again, I couldn’t figure out a way how either of them could have been eggsicuted any butter. Regardless of my needless bickering, director Guillermo del Toro is still one to watch, even if Pan’s Labyrinth is purty much a female version of his Devil’s Backbone. Luckily for us all, it isn’t a Spanish version of his Hellboy, aka HELLBOO
