Pan's Labyrinth- Sunday, 9pm, C4

Channel 4 in the UK are playing Pan’s Labyrinth at 9pm GMT on Sunday 28th September.

Personally, one of my “films to see before you die”, a true masterpiece of film production… But one where if you speak less than 10 minutes is up you will most likely start crying. Yes, it is that good. It’s in spanish, but should have english subtitles- they didn’t dub it which is such a good thing, thank god. Allows the actors to be as good as they are…

Mark Kermode said it was one of those films critics wait all year for… one which makes the job worthwhile. I couldn’t agree more that this was the best film of 2006, by far.

But it needs to be seen, as a full review of this film wouldn’t work without spoilers as it couldn’t come close to describing this film’s astonishing, to even begin to understand the spectacular piece of film making… art… that Pan’s Labyrinth is. Just watch it. Set your Sky + boxes, set your DVD recorders and PVRs, or even a VHS if you’re still back in the 90s, or watch it as it plays, because I am telling you right now, you could never regret seeing this film and it will genuinely change you.
