MirrorMask

Okay, I'm not quite sure how "MirrorMask" got on my Netflix queue. I don't remember putting it there, and when the DVD arrived, I was terribly confused.

That said, this is one of the coolest movies I have ever seen. The screenplay was written by Neil Gaiman, and Jim Henson was involved somehow, too. (No muppets, though)

It's strange, it's surreal, it's awesome.

The main character is a juggler in her parents' circus. Then things start to get weird.

I can't describe it. It just has to be seen.

Later,

Update: obviously Jim Henson himself couldn't have been involved, as the movie was made in 2005. Jim Henson Studios did the special effects. Still, no muppets.

Later,

A juggler chick in a circus? And things get "weird"?

Sounds good.

It is. I ripped it to my hard drive. Next time I'm in Greybull we'll watch it. Probably Thanksgiving.

I'd been debating about seeing this one. Most of the reviews I've seen were along the lines of "awesome visuals; lame story." Sounds like it might be worth a go after all. :^D

It really is. At least, I thought the story was good.
