REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Wed., Sept. 13, 2000
Bowie makes another charismatic turn as the King of the Goblins who kidnaps a baby boy in this imaginative Jim Henson film mixing puppetry and live action and executive produced by George Lucas. Connelly stars as the young girl who must navigate a perilous labyrinth to save her brother.
