Like any great myth, Pan’s Labyrinth encodes its messages through displays of magic. And like any good fairy tale, it is also embroidered with threads of death and loss. Dark, twisted and beautiful, this entwines fairy-tale fantasy with war-movie horror to startling effect. Literally and figuratively marvelous, a rich, daring mix of fantasy and politics.
