Director: Jim Henson. Available on Amazon. Added to Watchlist. From metacritic. June's Most Anticipated Streaming Titles. Jim Henson was unhappy with the compositing of the finished scene, although he considered the puppetry featured in it worthy of inclusion.
Henson received help editing the film from executive producer George Lucas. According to Henson, "When we hit the editing, I did the first cut, and then George was heavily involved on bringing it to the final cut.
After that, I took it over again and did the next few months of post-production and audio. I always want to go one way, and George goes another way, but we each took turns trading off, giving and taking.
George tends to be very action-oriented and he cuts dialogue quite tight; I tend to cut looser, and go for more lyrical pauses, which can slow the story.
So, I loosen up his tightness, and he tightens my looseness. The music video for "Underground" features Bowie as a nightclub singer who stumbles upon the world of the Labyrinth, encountering many of the creatures seen in the film.

Ebert said that as the film was set in an "arbitrary world" none of the events in it had any consequences, robbing the film of any dramatic tension.
Siskel objected to the film's "violent" plot, writing, "the sight of a baby in peril is one of sleaziest gimmicks a film can employ to gain our attention, but Henson does it.
Other critics were more positive. Kathryn Buxton found that it had "excitement and thrills enough for audiences of all ages as well as a fun and sometimes slightly naughty sense of humor".
Several critics noted the film's subtext, and found it successful to varying degrees. Saw Tek Meng acknowledged, "Sarah's experiences in the labyrinth are symbolic of her transition from child to woman" but ultimately found the film "too linear" for its latent themes to come through.
Hoffmann , stating that Hoffman's The Nutcracker "is also about the voyage to womanhood, including the hint of sexual awakening, which Sarah experiences too in the presence of a goblin king.
Connelly's portrayal of Sarah polarized critics and received strong criticism from some reviewers. Critic Kirk Honeycutt referred to Connelly as "a bland and minimally talented young actress"  Writing for The Miami News , Jon Marlowe stated, "Connelly is simply the wrong person for the right job.
She has a squeaky voice that begins to grate on you; when she cries, you can see the onions in her eyes. Petersburg Times praised her acting saying, "Connelly makes the entire experience seem real.
She acts so naturally around the puppets that you begin to believe in their life-like qualities. Bowie's performance was variously lauded and derided.
In his largely positive review of the film, Corliss praised him as "charismatic" referring to his character as a " Kabuki sorcerer who offers his ravishing young antagonist the gilded perks of adult servitude".
He has just the right look for a creature who's the object of both loathing and secret desire. Petersburg Times found, "Bowie forgoes acting, preferring to prance around his lair while staring solemnly into the camera.
He's not exactly wooden. Plastic might be a more accurate description. Following the film's mixed reception, Henson came "the closest I've seen him to turning in on himself and getting quite depressed", his son Brian told Life magazine.
Since Henson's death, Labyrinth has been re-evaluated by several notable critics. A review from in Empire magazine called the film "a fabulous fantasy" and wrote, "David Bowie cuts a spooky enough figure in that fright wig to fit right in with this extraordinary menagerie of Goth Muppets.
And Jennifer Connelly, still in the flush of youth, makes for an appealingly together kind of heroine.
Despite its poor performance at the American box office, Labyrinth was a success on home video and later on DVD. I can't believe they still recognize me from that movie.
It's on TV all the time and I guess I pretty much look the same. Labyrinth has become a cult film.
