Del Toro’s genius for wonderful story telling and creature design really stands out, making this his best movie since Pan’s Labyrinth. Sally Hawkins (Eliza Esposito) and Doug Jones ( Amphibian Man) both turn in a wordless performances that get across the star-crossed romance between these two.
I want my two hours of my life back!
Ms. Hawkins reminds us how intense silent films could be. She gives the best performance of the year with the most heart-piercing silence you’ve ever seen.
This meticulously crafted jewel is del Toro's most satisfying work since Pan's Labyrinth.
Guillermo del Toro channels all the streams that make him unique into The Shape Of Water, pouring his heart, soul and considerable craft into an exquisite creature fable.

- The general's ribbon bar is upside down. The Silver Star and Distinguished Service Medal were his highest honors, and should be on the top row, not the bottom. His WW2 Victory Medal is much lower in precedence and should be on a lower row, not the top.

- Giles: If 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 the truth of these facts. And the tale of love and loss. And the monster, who tried to destroy it all.
