Labyrinth ()

directed by
featuring David Bowie, Jennifer Connelly, Toby Froud, Brian Henson, Shelley Thompson, Christopher Malcolm

George Lucas produced and Jim Henson directed this gothic fantasy which pits living and breathing actors Jennifer Connelly and David Bowie (who, along with Trevor Jones, provides the film's music) against a motley collection of Muppet monsters. The film centers upon teenage Sarah (Connelly), who lives in a fantasy world of myth and magic, evil spells, and wondrous enchantment. She is baby-sitting her little brother when she cavalierly wishes that goblins would take him away. She gets her wish, and a coterie of goblins abduct him. She then encounters Jareth (David Bowie), the ruler of a mystical world one step removed from reality. He tells Sarah that the only way to get her brother back is to find her way through a M.C. Escher-like labyrinth and find the castle at the center. As she makes her way through the maze, she faces a number of horrific challenges (like the Bog of Eternal Stench) before she finds her way to the gravity-defying castle, where her brother is being held by the evil goblins. Paul Brenner, Rovi Hide synopsis

Fantastic. Fantasy, romance, adventure. Fun for all ages. David Bowie is at his best.

Darkly Artistic

by mehaul on Feb 25, 2010

TITLE: Labyrinth GENRE: Fantasy/Puppet Cast CAST: Jennifer Connelly, David Bowie PLOT: Flustered teenage daughter wishes away the toddler brother she was babysitting for. Bowie, the Goblin King, and his cast of malicious puppet creatures hold the tot ransom against the ticks of the clock. If Sarah can get to the castle through the most bizarre maze imagined, she can win her brother back. A weak premise but played well through the imaginative sets. Henson puppets throughout whose appearance is based on Maurice Sendak Characters and a stunning Escher inspired architecture and castle star, not Bowie nor Connelly. This movie is a colaboration of Lucas' Industrial Light and Magic and Henson's top notch puppeteers. Bowie's music is some of his weakest efforts. RETURN ON INVESTMENT: 7 of 10 solely for the visuals. DVD BONUS: None and this is a failing too. it would have been wonderful to get Lucas, Henson, Sendak, Escher and Bowie talking about their production.
