Last year, Mexican filmmakers wowed moviegoers with three of 2006's best movies: Alejandro Gonzales Inarritu's Babel, Alfonso Cuaron's Children of Men and Guillermo Del Toro's Pan's Labyrinth. Tonight, as a part of their ongoing Monterey International Film Festival, the Golden State Theatre screens Pan's Labyrinth, a haunting fairy tale for grown-ups that moves between scenes of an outpost during the Spanish Civil War and of a young woman's fantasy world populated with a creaking faun and a terrifying monster with eyes in the palms of his hands. Also on the bill is 1992's El Mariachi, a humorous action flick about a musician who is mistaken for a killer. The film was a breakthrough for Mexican director Robert Rodriguez of Spy Kids and Sin City fame. [ST]
