Next Noir Release - The Golden Labyrinth - The Unique Films of Guillermo del Toro
The Golden Labyrinth is the first comprehensive study of the films of Guillermo del Toro. Extensively researched, and presented in an entertaining and readable fashion synonymous with Noir Publishing, The Golden Labyrinth covers all del Toro’s work to date, but goes further, covering their inspirations, genesis, and production.
Going further than a typical film book, The Golden Labyrinth explores such diverse inspirations as the work of the alchemists that inspired the Cronos Device of del Toro’s full-length debut, the terrible events of the Spanish Civil War that underlay some of his most critically acclaimed work, and the Celtic mythology that provides the beating heart of Hellboy II, to name but three.
• Films include:-
• Hollywood hits Hellboy, Hellboy 2 - The Golden Army & Blade 2
• Epic fantasy on a dizzying scale as revealed in Pan’s Labyrinth
• The subtle chills of The Devil’s Backbone
• Imaginative vampirism in Cronos & voracious insects in Mimic
• Haunting fear & childhood nightmares of The Orphanage
• Animated entries in the Hellboy series & early TV career
