The Shape of Water

Mexican director Guillermo del Toro has created a cinematic feast for the senses. With his own very unique vision, he has crafted a beautiful allegorical tale about difference and how deceptive the true meaning of beauty and ugliness can be in this world. He has spun a fantasy tale which at once delights and horrifies us and leaves us in thought by the ending credits.

My nod for the Oscar goes to The Shape of Water and fingers crossed that Mr. del Toro is up there at the podium tonight to receive his very much merited award for best picture.

  1. megashare9 - These monster movies or whatever you call them should be fun and enjoyable to watch. This movie was slow, boring, depressing at times, subtly racists and what was the point? Basically it's set in 50's with a strong emphasis on the white male patriarchal society. Everyone but the white mail is a second class citizen. There's a water creature involved but it's like he almost takes a back seat to everything else going on in the movie. I don't even care about the nudity but it makes you wonder what is the point, Octavia Spencer plays her usual Hollywood role of fat black sassy woman and an honestly a better movie would of been about her falling in love with the sea creature. It's just a really strange weird moving mixing in elements of stereotypes and racism and sexism (since the women in this movie are secretary's or stay at home wives or "the help", the black men are docile and sub servant, and the white men are seen as all powerful except Dimitri who is Russian, and there's a gay painter who has cats and likes show tunes. I mean stick to one script what is this movie trying to be? I was so distracted by all the other stuff in the movie you can't even enjoy the "love story" I guess it was trying to be. A weird movie in my book right up there with other movies I hated like Watchmen.
