Pan's Labyrinth by Guillermo del Toro

The newest film on this list comes to us from Spain by way of one of the new Three Amigos of Mexico (Guillermo del Toro, Alfoso Cuaron and Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu). Pan's Labyrinth transcends films and hits us at the level of a dream, or nightmare thick with imagery from our favorite and most feared fairytales. del Toro writes and directs this film with the ease and skill of a legend though only 43 years old. The film is the undeniable masterpiece of the new century cinema and I am looking forward from hearing more from Guillermo del Toro.
