Pan's Labyrinth

I don't have much revealing or original to say, but it was a lovely dark fairy tale. It left me feeling incredulous about the evil humans inflict on each other, particularly in dark times when the rule of law is weak. Is the threat of punishment, loss of freedom and forfeiture of assets, all that restrains the darkest impulses of a great many? Can anyone know until thrown back fully on one's own resources?
