Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio
Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio: Directed by Guillermo del Toro, Mark Gustafson. With Ewan McGregor, David Bradley, Gregory Mann, Burn Gorman. A father’s wish magically brings a wooden boy to life in Italy, giving him a chance to care for the child.
This is a pretty heavy film for a story that Disney also adapted twice, once in the same year that Guillermo del Toro’s version came out in. I haven’t seen the Disney live action version and really have no interest, they’ve not done well with their live action stuff, but this one is damn well done and explores some especially difficult subjects from fascism to life after death.
