Staff Pick! Chosen by Sean R.

“The writer hails from Monty Python, the director invented the Muppets, the executive producer spawned a little thing called Star Wars. Its leading lady was a future Oscar winner. And the villain was played by a British rock god, who also contributed a couple of none-too-shabby songs to the soundtrack.

“Jennifer Connelly, 16 at the time, plays the heroine, Sarah; David Bowie is Jareth, the glam rock Goblin King; Pythonite Terry Jones scripted, and George Lucas oversaw the project.

“An innovative mix of sophisticated puppetry and special effects, LABYRINTH has all the components of classic myth: monsters and mazes, a hero (or heroine) who must overcome fear and self-doubt, and a journey that leads to discovery, and self-discovery.” – Philadelphia Inquirer
