you must see MirrorMask. visually compelling, with a unique setting for the typical "journey" plot. i'll admit, there's a slight disconnect with the images being so other-worldly... but it works to focus you in to the main character. And then when you finally get the chance to connect with one of the characters... well, i don't want to spoil it.

And, interestingly enough, to me the most emotional scene doesn't involve the main characters... and, as the tragedy it is, the main characters don't hardly mention it but with an aside comment. but again, no spoilers... talk to me after you've seen it!
