4 Tiny Scenes from Guillermo Del Toro's PAN'S LABYRINTH emerge online!

Hey folks, Harry here with some scenes from PAN'S LABYRINTH that have debuted on a French website online... which means you have a Spanish film with French subtitles in these clips... the first two have to do with the little girl as she begins to see that fantasy world emerge around her. The second two have to do with her step-father's character and his search for rebels in the woods in the province they live. The film has played, yet we've yet to see a review pop in on either HOLLYWOOD REPORTER or VARIETY yet, but I have heard from a friend (not Guillermo) that the press screening went phenomenally and that the film was beloved. The phrase, "Guillermo's masterpiece" has been uttered more than once in regards to this film. Picturehouse has picked it up, we'll be seeing it I believe in late September / early October. Perfect time for a dark horror fantasy... Autumn is the time for such things.

    where's David Bowie?

    by theBigE

    okay, that joke has gotten old quick. But I can't help to think the presence of Jennifer Connelly couldn't hurt this film any!

    but she sure is a cutie - hope this isn't the only film she ever does. i'd always looked forward to seeing the chick that played Miete in CITY OF LOST CHILDREN in something when she got older, but as far as i know, she hasn't done anything else. but then, i don't really keep up with french films that much.

    Guillermo, overrated.

    by J_akob

    It never ceases to amaze me at how many people fawn over Del Toro like he's destroyed cinema and rebuilt it in a day. His work is, at most, average to good. His movies are like templates for college filmmakers to use as cookie cutters. He lacks style, his movies always have whimpy sound effects, and the pacing is usually bad. Sounds like I'm being harsh doesn't it? Well, I love movies and I've seen a lot of em. There are greater giants than Guillermo.
