(1986) dir Jim Henson w/Jennifer Connelly, David Bowie [101 min]
LABYRINTH is a modern-day Alice in Wonderland that pits a teenage girl (Connelly) against the Goblin King (a perfectly cast David Bowie), as she attempts to rescue her kidnapped baby brother. Full of Jim Henson’s typically imaginative creature design, the film’s eye-popping sets – including the M.C. Escher inspired castle – create a wholly believable world existing just behind the facade of reality.

“The script, by Terry Jones, co-creator of Monty Python’s Flying Circus, is witty and slightly zany… The result, a fabulous film about a young girl’s journey into womanhood that uses futuristic technology to illuminate a mythic-style tale, is in many ways a remarkable achievement.” – The New York Times
