El laberinto del fauno

I knew what a labyrinth was--a maze you can enter if you want to get lost. Or if you want to lose somebody. Hence the line: "I don't want to talk to you for days. So hand me your GPS device, cover your eyes, and get inside."

That covered the first part of the title. But who is Pan? What is a pan? A gadget for cooking that owns a labyrinth? Or is he a distant relative of Peter, having also come from Neverland? I had no idea.

So I watched Pan's Labyrinth to find out, and I hope you will, too, because it won't make a waste of your time. It's so good it will inspire you to learn conversational Spanish and forever make you wonder how eating two pieces of grapes can make one's life utterly miserable.

It's really great, the movie. Hindi pilit, and the story just comes out naturally. Paborito ko dun 'yung General: very cold and calculating.
