    Episode #91: LABYRINTH

    Come children. Come for the muppets, stay for the puzzling final confrontation you won’t understand until you’re older. I have no choice but to vote with my heart on this one. Sorry, I know that the movie is flawed, but I don’t care, it is worthy of the canon. I think “the canon of films to live on“ can contain films that are gorgeous, but flawed. That dazzle with images rather than with plot, or that work best for children and don’t play to the audience as well once they have become adults. After all, children are humans too. Everyone keeps talking about nostalgia getting votes for this, but I’m not sure that’s the case. I wouldn’t give a nostalgia vote for goonies, but this film has an ambition unlike anything that movie attempted. There has never been any other film like it, and (just ask my kids) the muppets are magic. If there is something I’m unaware of, please let me know! Yeah, I wish the editing was better! I don’t think I care that the script isn’t tighter, to me each meandering incidents brings a unique joy. I think maybe guys didn’t consider it a film for girls, but if you were actually a girl and were completely unrepresented as a protagonist in similar movies, then you would surely relate to Sarah.
