Jack Zipes on Recent and Forthcoming Fairy Tale Films

The films that have impressed me a very great deal are the ones I discuss in the last chapter of my book: Jan Svankmajer’s “Little Otik”; “Pan’s Labyrinth” is also absolutely brilliant; and Tarsem Singh’s “The Fall” — a remarkable, colorful, unbelievable fairy-tale film. All of these, by the way, are live action. [I also like] “How to Train Your Dragon,” which is a lovely animated fairy tale. Totally — not anti-Disney — but not like the Disney animated fairy-tale forms.

From this very interesting interview with fairy tale maven Jack Zipes. (via surlalune)

  1. Great interview — thanks for the link! I’m gonna Netflix The Fall — I loved Lee Pace in Pushing Daisies. (Yum.) I know it was good but I found Pan’s Labyrinth harrowing — ohhh, that beautiful little girl and her suffering. :(

    And I’m so glad Zipes liked How to Train Your Dragon.
