Movie Reviews: “The Shape of Water

Movie Review: Detroit News

The Shape of Water

The Shape of Water” is director Guillermo del Toro’s finest film, a lovely, empathetic tribute to Old Hollywood, monster movies, outsiders and love that could only come from the mind of the visionary filmmaker.

Del Toro’s films have a tendency to be overly precious visually (see “Crimson Peak” or “Pan’s Labyrinth”) at the expense of their stories. Here he crafts a tale that is enriched, not overwhelmed, by its look, and whose humanity shines through its gorgeous, elaborate, award-worthy production design.

Movie Review: Minneapolis Star Tribune

The Shape of Water

Guillermo del Toro may know better than any living filmmaker how to create a fantasy with intelligence and maturity. He might make some miscalculations — I found much to admire but little to enjoy in his 2015 Victorian gothic extravaganza “Crimson Peak” — but never shows a lack of artistry and aspiration.

With his dreamlike love story “The Shape of Water,” del Toro doesn’t just rebound from that disappointing misstep, he comes roaring back in triumph with the best film of his stellar career. An enchanting re-imagining of “Beauty and the Beast,” it is an unforgettably romantic, utterly sublime, dazzling phantasmagoria.

Movie Review: The Movie Sleuth

The Shape of Water

Guillermo del Toro is a master of crafting atmosphere and mood with his filmography encompassing a gamut of genres. His specialty is dark fantasy and his newest film, The Shape of Water (2017), is a worthy entry.

The film takes place in Baltimore during the early ’60s at the Occam Aerospace Research Center. A young mute woman named Elisa Esposito (Sally Hawkins) works there as a janitor on the night shift. During one of her rounds she discovers the existence of “Amphibious Man” (Doug Jones) a humanoid water creature that is being kept prisoner in a tank by the military. The rest of the film follows her interactions with this mysterious being and her run-ins with Richard Strickland (Michael Shannon) a mean-spirited, jingoistic colonel.
