The story is interesting, in a twisted fairytale sort of way, but the novelty of this dream world does eventually wear off, and we're left checking our watches.

It is so fresh, so bold and so fantastical on the visual plane that it seems to re-invent the language of dreams and widen the possibilities of fantasy storytelling.

Leonidas walks this tightrope quite engagingly, showing us a girl on the cusp of womanhood, torn between two competing needs -- to become an adult, to remain a child, to vilify, to revere.

Luscious evidence that the look of modern fantasy cinema can amount to more than bald-faced Tim Burton swipes arriving 15 years after the fact.

It's a near-flawless marriage of content and form, a movie that kids, adults and graduate students of computer imagery will all have their own reasons to love.

Emotionally direct and visually baroque, MirrorMask reminded me of Queen's epic songs, which find over-the-top ways to explore everyday situations.
