Hello and thanks for this piece! I saw Labyrinth first time in the cinemas over here in South Africa. Was more impressed with Jennifer Conelly than with David Bowie (I'm two years younger than her). I watched it again very recently, second time was better.

Glad you enjoyed reading it - it was a great film. I did describe Sarah as 'one of the world's most attractive actresses' but the Peer Review conversation all seemed to focus on David Bowie for some reason...

I watched Labyrinth for the first time today, and it was excellent indeed - as you say in this Entry, it is impressively layered with meaning. The creatures were superb, too - the facial expressions were spot on...

I particularly liked the Escher-esque scene, plus the Matte Lines (I presume) creating the opening in the Labyrinth, and the face of Jareth in the rocks that was an optical illusion.

David Bowie's trousers did have a starring role smiley - flustered but I also liked his hair. Jennifer Connelly was excellent...

It's a classic film of the 1980s, one of my favourites growing up. You can possibly tell I've seen it many, many times and it's always caught my imagination. I'm glad you enjoyed it too!
