The Dark Crystal - A film by Jim Henson
When it came to puppet mastery in the 70s/80s, Jim Henson was the man. The "Dark Crystal" provides unmistakable proof. It's a fantasy adventure story suitable for kids but creepy enough to keep adults entertained. Absolutely amazing puppetry, sounds, and visuals.
I like to test new friends to see if they know about Dark Crystal - if they do, great, if they have never seen it....uh....our friendship will be on the rocks until that gets remedied. I love all the imagery in this movie. It haunts my dreams in a good way.
