A fun fairy tale. Only big issue I had with it was her quickness to embrace the monster for apparently no reason when first learning of it after it attacked someone. Also, this could have been a PG or PG-13 film with some editing and it might have fit better with younger kids who might not care that she'd have no motivation to become friends with the monster. Anyhow, worth it. 7/10

The Shape of Water

Guillermo del Toro’s entire career has been built on a profound empathy for the monsters and the outsiders, sometimes metaphorically, quite often literally, and that goes to a logical extreme in The Shape of Water. Imagine Creature from the Black Lagoon played out as a Beauty and the Beast-style romance, now add in a large portion of mermaid, both specific and related, mythology and you’ll con... read more

Del Toro is back to the elements, even he has a creature of the black lagoon is less fantastic than his last movies. Nostalgia of happy cold war american environment, with a perverse FBI guy and a good soviet spy. And freedom to explicit sex where all was signals to film critics.

From master story teller, Guillermo del Toro, comes THE SHAPE OF WATER - an other-worldly fairy tale, set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1963. In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of silence and isolation. Elisa’s life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment. Rounding out the cast are Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Michael Stuhlbarg and Doug Jones.

"There's a very nice, even distribution of things in The Shape of Water which makes it a very, very enjoyable fairy tale. It isn't GDT's best and kind of lacks a clear emotional journey but hey, I'll watch Sally Hawkins act this well any day of the week. Bestiality is also certainly a message I can get b... uhm"

"And the Nominees are... *Call Me by Your Name *Darkest Hour *Dunkirk *Get Out *Lady Bird *Phantom Thread *The Post *The Shape of Water *Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri And the Oscar goes to... The top category of the night, once again, doesn't have a lock. The Shape of Water seems like the favorite at the moment; it won the DGA and PGA, and scored the most nominations. There are a few key precursors that keep it from being a lock; first, it isn't going to win screenplay (something"
