Kat Elliott Vanderjagt joins MG to discuss one of her favorites: the British indie MirrorMask, written by Neverwhere's Neil Gaiman and directed by Dave McKean.  The two had previously collaborated on the graphic novel 'Violent Cases,' and McKean himself is most famous for the cover art to Gaiman's award-winning comic The Sandman, but MirrorMask was their first foray into film - and at a budget of only 4 million, the result is an amazingly realized mix of live-action and animation that brings McKean's nightmarish visuals to life within a story that serves as a kind of of dry run for Gaiman's later masterpiece, Coraline!
