'Pan's Labyrinth' ...
From the trailers, it looked like a dark yet whimsical movie, Tim Burton-meets-C.S. Lewis. OK, maybe darker than Tim Burton, who's really not so dark.
But sheesh. I wasn't prepared for this movie, for the violence.
It's an amazing film, beautiful to look at (if you overlook all the blood), and the story is fascinating, and the effects are cool, but wow. Yeah. Dark.
