Pan's Labyrinth

This fantastic film, set in the dying embers of the Spanish Civil War, has already been reviewed by the author of Lenin's Tomb in Socialist Worker, and I have little more to add to it - bar this: Go and see this film if you possibly can. It is a bit like The Shining meets Land and Freedom, though with a script woven around a magical realist fairy tale that is reminiscent of something 'the Brothers Grimm' might have written had they seen Picasso's Guernica. If you can imagine what that might be like.
