A charming cinematic fairy tale, mixing Beauty and the Beast and Creature from the Black Lagoon and Splash with beautiful cinematography and whimsical music and a Mad Men setting/vibe and a peppering of a gothic horror vibe and romance aplenty. While it may not be my favorite of 2017 I do appreciate it as one of the least "Oscar bait"-y Best Picture winners in some time. I also appreciated the naked female ass and titties featured throughout the film's runtime.

Mixed on this: well directed, visually stunning; and I admire Del Toro's passion to provide quality genre films. Still, this felt more like a Jeunet film and almost calculated for these times with it's black and white characters and message of embracing diversity. It makes it clear from the start that it is a fairy tale, but it feels like a lazy way to justify the huge plot holes and plausibility issues - while it's strict on (period) details and brutal and realistic portrayal of violence.

This movie deserved every award it won. Guillermo del Toro is a mastermind. Everything he makes is perfect. I'm just happy she found her Nemo.

Shape of Water's production is fantastic, but the story is exceedingly conventional. I couldn't sit through the whole thing. I wish the writers had created a less pedestrian plot.

Del Toro's fidelity to history is literally all in the details: Hawkins' hairy nether regions are prioritized over the actual socio-historical backdrop, which is completely meaningless. He never gives us any plausible reason why the mute and mutant get together other than 'just because outsiders'. The style also leans too heavily on old Jeunet-Caro, right down to the contrived whimsy. It has its moments, but it's a pretentious comic book that highlights the real decline in critical standards.

Not bad, but I didn't find it anything superlative. It has the look of a decent film, but I wouldn't say that I was really engaged by the story. I expected more especially from the man behind Pan's Labyrinth.

I got big Amelie vibes from this. Mostly brought on by the fanciful score and inoffensive script. In terms of 'reading between the lines' we have a literal fish out of water story, with some loose racism to tie that notion into a 1960's black rights civil movement. Why del Toro wanted to explore that, I'm not certain. It felt like there was quite a lot left on the editing room floor too. 60's era set design should be highlighted tho, some parts had me thinking I was watching a Fallout cutscene.

ah! emotional crescendo after crescendo! a lovely monster movie equipped with charm, fervent performances, and a childhood fantasy dramatized: no joke, i used to wonder if i could flood a room to the ceiling with a bathtub. must be a latin-american thing. michael shannon deserved at least a nom, man.

Visually the film was beautiful, and the strong acting made it enjoyable enough to watch. Sadly, this really was the case of style over substance. It was a simple fairy tale for adults. Its revolutionary lesson being, you should not discriminate against pe... creatures, that look different from you.

With The Shape of Water, Del Toro has perfected his visual storytelling to deliver a distinctive and impressive film that relates a tepid love story. The essence of the plot is driven by the relationship between "the beauty" and "the beast" which falls into the clich├ęd cesspool of the protagonists' love being a combination of special, perfect and fraught with obstacles. Luckily Hawkins and Jones deliver stellar performances, making their characters somewhat sympathetic. Enjoyable, but flawed.

Lovingly shot adult fairy tale, if kind of predictable. Michael Shannon is really good at scary authority types, when he has the script to back him.

i was moved by the surprising compassion and understanding with which jenkins reacts to finding his lonely best friend in bed with the gross dude who ate his cat's face, until i remembered he chose his career first and only ended up helping her out because nobody had any use for his shitty art. which, presumably, is the same reason del toro decided to shoehorn these pandering yet disinterested and incoherent real-world analogues into his gloriously(?) goofy fishfucker fantasy.

I don't know if it's supposed to be an adult-oriented "Okja" or a humorless "Splash", but it's mostly an anachronistic and truly awful regurgitation of 19th century romanticism, with Michael Shannon wasted in the role of a stock villain.

A quite beautiful love story about a woman and a fish (yes.). Great performances, a nice setting and the typical Guillermo del Toro touch make this movie as enjoyable as otherworldly.
