Have you ever tried to explain a movie to someone who has never seen it, and as you do so, you realize that you sound absolutely insane? That was my experience trying to explain the plot of Jim Henson’s 1986 film Labyrinth, starring David Bowie as a tight-pants-wearing, child-kidnapping, Goblin King named Jareth. Along side, a young Jennifer Connelly plays a bratty 16 year-old named Sarah, who just wants to dance in the park in peace, and not babysit her younger brother. The movie devolves into sexual innuendos, creepy Muppet-like goblins, random bursts of song and dance, and a giant, seemingly unsolvable maze.
