Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

Considering how much this movie feels like Guillermo del Toro channeling one of my other favorite directors, Jean-Pierre Jeunet, I'm very pleased with the results. Try to describe it to someone who has never seen it, and watch their face turn incredulous that such a movie could possibly work, and yet it does. It hits nearly all the right notes from start to finish. How hard they must have worked to get every little detail right, to make the sets and costumes and music and lighting and sound work together in such harmony, but the film has to have its sense of magical realism calibrated just perfectly or it won't work. This is a special movie; it may resemble other films in certain details, but in the whole it's one of a kind.
