LOST IN FANTASY
Welcome to a world of goblins, flatulent bogs, and David Bowie scantily clad in tights so tight that your eyes can't help but go down there. Sunshine at Midnight presents a four-day screening of Jim Henson's 1986 film Labyrinth, a puppet-filled fantasy world that stars 15-year-old Jennifer Connelly as Sarah, sister to her toddler stepbrother whom she wishes away to the Goblin King. Well, it so happens that His Majesty, played by a wigged-out, cosmetically perfected Bowie, grants her wish and the only way she can get the chubby babe back is to go through his labyrinth. The pre-CG special effects are a trip to watch, but our imagination runs a little too rampant at the scenes where Bowie, dressed in that creamy tight hosiery of his, spins those crystal clear balls in his hands.
