  • Chronos

    Chronos is the first movie in Del Toro's Trilogy . The second is The Devil's Backbone and the third is Pan's Labyrinth. Normally I am not a fan of the fantasy genre, but these three films are an exception. His skill as a filmmaker is mesmerizing as he weaves his story in and out between reality and the fantastical. His imagery is archetypal and subtle and never mundane. His skill is such that the surreal and the fantastical merge with reality. One buys into the story and becomes invested in the outcomes of the characters and eventually accepts the whole as reality. Admittedly, many of the creatures and people who populate his films are grossly deformed or hideous to behold. This is never done for the shock value or done gratuitously, but done in an archetypal context consistent with the film's imagery and subtext. In all of these films there is a compassion for mankind that is unique to Del Toro's own philosophy that asks the viewer to reflect upon what it means to be human. I love all three of these films. (Note for parents, these are not films suitable for the kiddies.)
