Pan's Labyrinth - Is it coming to Chatty?


Does anyone know when and where in Chattanooga "Pan's Labyrinth" will be showing? It looks a bit scary for me, cuz I'm the wussy type, but I'm curious just the same. Rotten Tomatoes gave it 99% (Cream of the Crop gave it %100). I've never heard of the director, I don't really like scary movies...but I do enjoy a solid flick. So, if anyone knows anything about this flick and thinks it worth seeing, let me know if its coming around town.

Kiko, I really want to see this movie. Guillermo Del Toro is a Mexican director who most recently did "Hellboy" and "Blade II" before that. He has been respected for his visual style and his handling of visual effects in his movies, but nothing has garnered him as much praise before as "Pan's Labyrinth." This could partially be due to the fact that critics are heaping a lot of praise on Mexican and Spanish directors in general these days. This is certainly their hour to shine. Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's (Amorres Perros, 21 Grams) "Babel" won the most Golden Globe nominations this year, and Pedro Almodovar's (Talk to Her, Bad Education) "Volver" and Alfonso Cuaron's (Yu Tu Mama Tambien, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkabban) "Children of Men" are also two of the best reviewed films of the year. This will certainly go down as a year if not the year for the Spanish speaking director.

Yeah, Vincent said you wanted to see it too. Talking about the Spanish...the movie does have a Salvado Dali fell to it.

Children of Men & Pan's Labyrinth are the two films I'm most pumped about, like, now.
