Guillermo Del Toro has two diverse groups of admirers: those who wish he made more films like the powerful dramatic story of children and teachers at the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War, The Devil’s Backbone, and those who admire him for his comic book actioners: Mimic, Blade II, Hellboy. With Pan’s Labyrinth, he goes quite a way towards satisfying both niche markets.
