yup, I have, it's great... about the importance of imagination and
the banality of fascism... its looks great, well acted and so on.
however in terms of individualism in films PL makes it clear that the
anarcho-socialists work collectively, so even tho' it focus primarily
on a child, her actions are part of wider anti-fascist gesture
within the plot.

for fans of style and so on, the mise-en-scene is very similar to his
previous films, with mazes, blood, clockwork, insects and so on.
