(1982) dir Jim Henson and Frank Oz w/Jim Henson, Frank Oz, Kathryn Mullen [93 min]
Mixing Brian Froud’s amazing conceptual design and elements of traditional fairy tales, Henson and longtime collaborator Frank Oz create a fantastic world ruled by the hulking dragon-like Skeksis, where an elf-like orphan must venture forth to defeat them. Using a mix of puppetry, marionettes, modern special effects, and more, DARK CRYSTAL creates a visual world rarely equaled in any fantasy film while remaining true to its basis in universal myth.
