    Mar Diestro-Dopido's BFI: Pan's Labyrinth (2013) is yet another example of extensive look at a contemporary classic film, this time by the Mexican director Guillermo del Toro. After the Introduction: The Real and the Imagined, Pan's Impact, A Long, Long Time Ago , the book is divided into four chapters: 1.The Horror(s) of War: Spanish War(s), The Mexican Connection, The War and the Past, 2.Vidal and Amnesia: Family Ties, Vidal's Three Denials, 3.Ofelia and Memory: The Underworld, 4. The End...: Mar Diestro-Dopido's BFI: Pan's Labyrinth (2013) is yet another example of extensive look at a contemporary classic film, this time by the Mexican director Guillermo del Toro. After the Introduction: The Real and the Imagined, Pan's Impact, A Long, Long Time Ago , the book is divided into four chapters: 1.The Horror(s) of War: Spanish War(s), The Mexican Connection, The War and the Past, 2.Vidal and Amnesia: Family Ties, Vidal's Three Denials, 3.Ofelia and Memory: The Underworld, 4. The End...: The Undying Past. There's also an interview between the author and del Toro included in the book. Diestro-Dopido does a great job of creating the context of the film, especially with the Spanish Civil War, and how it ties in with his earlier films Cronos and The Devil's Backbone (both of which I am inspired to see now).

    An incredibly well-thought out, intriguing and fascinating insight to my most favourite movie ever. And, whilst I already knew many of the facts and symbolism, it still offered me even deeper meanings and historical facts about the Spanish Civil War and General Franco. I think Del Toro is a bloody genius!

    Some interesting insights, and useful links to other films, literature and art. However, not the detailed study of the film I was expecting - clearly more an interest in the film (and del Toro's work), rather than an analysis. Good if you want to look at the the nature and themes of the film in more depth; not so useful for students of Film looking for assistance with examinations.

    I actually liked this better than the novel. It enhanced the novel and filled in a few of the gaps. I recommend this to anyone who is expecting the novel to be greater than the movie. Alone, I do not think it is, but with this book, it is better.

    A variety of topics including a focus on how Pan's Labyrinth responds to the Spanish Civil War. Really good in general. A variety of topics including a focus on how Pan's Labyrinth responds to the Spanish Civil War. Really good in general.
