Pan's Labyrinth

I had heard good things about Pan's Labyrinth. I had seen a commercial or two a while back suggesting a fantasy. So, when we happened upon it on HBO the other day, we watched it without much expectation. What a gripping film. I was not prepared for how dark it was. Amazing that the same director was also responsible for Hellboy, a mildly entertaining comic book film. If you haven't seen Pan's Labyrinth. Do it now. I am not promising you'll be choked up at the end like I was, but I am promising it is worth seeing. Among other things, it contains the single most disturbing creature I have seen on film.

In more mundane news, the semester has started and I am splitting time among the American Bankruptcy Institute Law Review, job interviews for next summer, and the always pressing classwork. Beckett's Labyrinth is not nearly as entertaining as Pan's.

That is all.

Hey Beckett. Thanks for all the thoughtful comments on Prajna Paramita. I have not seet Pan's Labyrinth. Based on some of the ads I was under the impression it was a horror movie, but I guess not.

Not a horror movie, despite some horrible moments.

Admittedly, some people are horrified by fantasy based on the occult.
