Hannibal. Without people.
This is an incredible video, it captures the beautiful cinematography of Hannibal. It’s relaxing and distubing at the same time. If you are a fannibal you should definetely watch it.
Note: There are still some disturbing images, including blood and gore. Just no actual people. It’s also really, really beautifully put together, and the end is perfect.
Vladimir Nabokov on reading, writing, and the three things a great storyteller must be – a fine addition to our ongoing archive of wisdom on writing.
If you didn’t feel like crying at this point of the movie, really - you have no soul.

Even the very ending can be interpreted in two opposite ways: either Ofelia created a fairy-tale world in her head to escape real life and ultimately committed a form of suicide, or she’s simply an awakened being who saw what the masses bound to the material world cannot see and ultimately completed her process of illumination to become a true immortal.

With respect to this tagged comment, that’s not quite the case. What’s going on with the Faun isn’t obvious if you’re not familiar with the history of the Spanish Civil War and its aftermath, but… well, the stuff the Faun tells Ofelia about herself? “You’re meant for a great purpose”, “you have a special connection to the land”, etc.? Those ideas feature prominently in Francoist rhetoric. In fact, the Faun’s entire performance - including the monstrous trials he sends Ofelia to face - is essentially Fascist propaganda dressed up in fairy tale clothing.
So, even if the fairy tale world is just Ofelia’s fantasy? She still wins. By rejecting the Faun’s final command, she resists the temptation of her stepfather’s Fascist ideology and the promise of power and “specialness” it offers, even at the cost of her own life.
