See these films: Labyrinth + The Dark Crystal @ the Brattle


Source Code director Duncan Jones's dad, David Bowie, has always had a bit of the movie bug himself, bringing his uncanny charisma to films like Jim Henson's Labyrinth (1986). Looking a bit like Lindsay Lohan after a bender, his Goblin King lures a feisty teen played by Jennifer Connelly into the title maze, from which she must rescue her kid brother. Henson shows more of the twisted side of his muppetry in The Dark Crystal (1982), in which a gelfling (kind of a cross between an elf and a gling) goes on his quest to save his Tolkien-esque world from the evil, saurian Skeksis. That's at the Brattle Theatre, 40 Brattle St, Cambridge | Labyrinth: Friday, April 15 @ 7:30 pm; Monday, April 18 @ 4:30 + 9:15 pm | The Dark Crystal: Friday, April 15 @ 5:30 + 9:45 pm; Monday, April 18 @ 2:30 + 7 pm | $10; $8 students, seniors | 617.876.6837 or
