Labyrinth

Labyrinth

At today's double feature of this and Argento's Phenomena, one of the speakers put forth the reading of Bowie/Connelly's relationship mimicking artist/subject. There's certainly a lot there to chew on, and one aspect that I've unabashedly loved for years that stood out here was Bowie's soundtrack. Even in scenes where he's not specifically affecting the plot (w/r/t the labyrinth, crystal balls, etc...), his voice echoes both the menace of his Goblin King persona and the inner voice that Connelly projects onto him. In the end, he's a master manipulator that can only exist within the constraints of Connelly's imagination.
