The Shape of Water

Guillermo del Toroโ€™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 youโ€™ll con... read more

โ€œIf I spoke about it - if I did - what would I tell you? I wonder. Would I tell you about the time? It happened a long time ago, it seems. In the last days of a fair prince's reign. Or would I tell you about the place? A small city near the coast, but far from everything else. Or, I don't know... Would I tell you about her? The princess without voice. Or perhaps I would just warn you, about th... read more

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

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. Elisaโ€™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.

" Notes: Well, as usual with Guillermo del Toro, even though I did admire the work done and even though it turned to be quite enjoyable, to be honest, it didn't really blow me away though. Still, you have to give del Toro some credit as he once again has delivered another visually gorgeous picture with some really solid directing and the whole cast gave some strong performances.

100 Straight From The Heart: My Fave Romance Flix (100 movies items)

"Water takes the shape of whatever container it's poured into. In the romantic fantasy, The Shape of Water, it's poured into the hearts of a mute woman who lives an isolated life and a amphibian creatire who lives an aquatic life. So then what does that shape look like when two species are joined by love? Probably like a fish outta water. "

2017 Films - Best to Worst (75 movies items)

" Aside from a few nitpicks here and there, The Shape of Water has one major thing in it that I feel keeps it away from reaching true greatness. It's a very carefully and skilfully crafted love story (and who doesn't love a little bestiality every now and then, eh?), and Sally Hawkins, God bless her, is absolutely wonderful. So is the design of the monster. Yet, I feel that Sally Hawkins character embraces the monster far too quickly. Same with the monster towards her. There's a great scene in wh"
