From the film "Pan's Labyrinth"

A strange movie that did not know if it was a fantasy story for children, or a brutal condemnation of Franco's fascism.

Guillermo del Toro on Pan's Labyrinth:

http://old.bfi.org.uk/sightandsound/feature/49337

"I was trying to uncover a common thread between the 'real world' and the 'imaginary world', which I found in one of the seminal bloodlines within fairytales: the bloodline of choice. It's something that has intrigued me since Cronos, through Hellboy, and now to Pan's Labyrinth: the way your choices define you. And I thought it would be great to counterpoint an institutional lack of choice, which is fascism, with the chance to choose which the girl takes in this movie."

I don't think he pulled it off. For me it came across as an example of how one engages in flights of fantasy in order to avoid a painful reality (and how the two sometimes blur). Not that it was a bad movie though. Quite the opposite.

To continue in the anti-Fascist spirit... I just finished watching this one:

For fans of horror.

Generally, enjoyment of speech is the gateway to poor [results]. So it becomes the foundation for generating all negative emotional states. Jampel Pawo, The Certainty of the Diamond Mind
