So, I’ve reached the 50th movie in my list and that’s kind of amazing. It’s been about 2 years since I started blogging my favourites and I guess there’s a little further to go yet!
What I love about Labyrinth, is the story. And David Bowie. But mostly the story.
It’s a fairy-tale, a coming-of-age tale, a fantasy and the story of a character who succeeds because she’s smart, resourceful and determined. What’s not to like really? (Except of course the singing, if you don’t like singing in your movies.)
The puppetry is amazing too. Every time I watch it, I feel a little sad that CG has killed the art of movie puppetry. All those amazing skills made redundant by a computer.
For the record, my favourite song is Within You.
