Pans Labyrinth - ReviewWhile the darkness of -Grimms Fairy Tales has been gradually sanitized by both the passage of time and the growing desire toshelter youngsters from the cruelty of the outside world, Guillermo del Toro has cut away the safety net woven by theoverprotective powers that be to craft an intoxicating and original fable with the power to simultaneously enchant and repulse.After seemingly perfecting the melding of historical fact and imaginative fantasy with The_Devils_Backbone, a horrified delToro realized that whatever he thought he knew about war and death had been immediately rendered void when, just two daysafter the film made its debut at the Toronto Film Festival, the world was forever changed along with the New York skyline. In theaftermath, the filmmaker would escape grim reality by crafting an entertaining pair of CG-heavy Hollywood actioners that,despite outward appearances, still werent entirely devoid of the political commentary expressed in his most serious-mindedwork. Now, after proving that he is capable of producing a slick hit despite a frustrating false start in blockbuster-land, del Torohas returned with a companion piece to The_Devils_Backbone (a "sister" film in the directors own terms) which delvesheadlong into the subjects of fascism, brutality, and innocence with an insight he simply didnt have before the modern worldplunged into darkness. Just as a film such as The_Devils_Backbone couldnt have existed with the Spanish Civil War, a film suchas Pans Labyrinth couldnt exist without the apocalyptically titled War on Terror.It would be impossible to tell a tale as brutal as Pans Labyrinth without the balance of great beauty, and in the lens ofcinematographer Guillermo_Navarro, del Toro has found a collaborator capable of carrying his ambitious vision. Thecomposition, color, and stylistic texture of Pans Labyrinth suggest a fevered childs hallucinatory interpretation of anamalgamation of fairy tales. Of course, in order to achieve such a dramatic effect, the frame demands to be filled not only withphantasmagorical imagery but an exceptional selection of talent as well, and in Ivana_Baquero, Sergi_López, Maribel Verdú, andDoug_Jones, del Toro has found the ideal cast. The initial innocence and subsequent shattering of a young girl who graduallycomes to comprehend the inhumanity that surrounds her is heart-wrenchingly realized by Baquero, while Lopez inspires fierceloathing from his initial appearance and Verdú beautifully embodies the spirit of furtive, gentle righteousness right up until themoment she unleashes the fury that has been silently building inside. In his duel roles as the playfully menacing titular faun andthe downright terrifying Pale Man, formally trained mime and noted contortionist Doug_Jones continues the collaboration withdel Toro that began with Mimic to striking effect. If there is truly a modern heir to the Karloff throne, it is almost certainly Jones,whose chameleon-like ability to disappear into a character allows him to instill them the kind of depth and personality thatwould be near impossible to achieve with even the most advanced computer-generated creation. From del Toros perfectlybalanced screenplay to his assured skills as a visual storyteller, the fearless performances of an immensely talented cast, thesleepy lullaby that forms the foundation of Javier_Navarretes score, and special effects that have the power to dazzle andhorrify, all the elements in Pans Labyrinth fall beautifully into place to form an genuinely affecting adult fairy tale.
