On Labyrinth and the Journey to Adolescence
Labyrinth was one of my favorite movie growing up, I watched it constantly and never outgrew it. I was thrilled to learn that there was a midnight screening of Labyrinth at a theater in my area, it had been about four years since I watched this movie and I knew that the best way to revisit it would be on the big screen as I feel it was meant to be seen. This essay tells of my background with the movie, its significance to me during childhood and the significance it had to me when I had the chance to finally see it on the big screen. During my most recent viewing of the film, it had much more significance to me in a much different way than it ever had in childhood, I walked away from this screening being entranced by the film’s theme of growing up and becoming an adolescent and the significance that childhood has in one’s life in that it remains with you even after it has ended.
