[after screening discussion] Cary Jones maps Labyrinth's gender and sexual politics to uncover the way gender is represented in the context of the 1980s, the way memory and spaces are represented, where the film falls in the cycle of fantasy films of the 1980s and also why Labyrinth is so beloved by women who grew up in the 1980s.
