I absolutely love the imagery in Guillermo Del Torro’s movies. Here is a needull talking about his trilogy.
Like so many great artists, it doesn’t feel like del Toro is being adequately appreciated in his time. There’s a reason he was the opening night artist for Roger Ebert’s Overlooked Film Festival this year (with his masterful and tragically under-seen “Crimson Peak”). And yet, when I watch these films, along with almost all of his films, I have a distinct sense of timelessness. There is no doubt in my mind that people will be watching, analyzing and discussing “Pan’s Labyrinth” decades from now. It gives one that feeling only great art can provide—that it’s playing with themes and ideas that have been around for generations, but that it will also outlive us all.
