GDT’s first truly great flick. The R-Rated Family Movie schtick always came off as silly or had a story too dull to carry its own weight. Characters and morality are two dimensional; the world functions via cartoon logic. But the love story here is precious. Could be argued it’s an apologist film for zoophilia, considering the amphibian shows little intelligence beyond that of a dog.
Not just a love letter to the Creature from the Black Lagoon, but to cinema itself. Del Toro’s _The Shape of Water_ is the “Who is the real monster?” question taken to the nth degree, with some some fascinating side-concepts that are explored just enough to be worthwhile. At the end of the day _The Shape of Water_, at its most stripped back, is a movie about fucking a fish. But it’s the kind of movie about fucking a fish that should also probably win the Academy Award for Best Picture.
_Final rating:★★★½ – I really liked it. Would strongly recommend you give it your time._
I don’t find anything interesting in this movie. I know that most people love it but does it deserve 13 Oscar nominations? At least they only won 4. And the end is the most dissapointing part. Can anyone say that I’m wrong?
The Sad Shape of Moviemaking
While the basic premise of this King Kong-ish plot, the lead acting (with the exception of the stereotypical and WAY overplayed villain), and the recreation of the 60’s time period are all somewhat worthy (three stars worth), there are many oddly-forced and clunky scenes all of which impede the storytelling flow and represent a serious distraction: Gratuitous gore (rotting fingers, headless kitty), homosexual innuendo, masturbation, a bathroom that will hold 7 feet of water by simply closing the door and putting a towel under it, inter-species love at first sight sexual attraction and off-screen consummation, and a Saturday-Night-Live-like song and dance skit (?), among several others.
Even with the love-conquers-all ‘happy ending’ and a beautifully depicted submerged in water embrace final scene,’ overall it doesn’t digest well.
P.S. The shill-like adoration of just the titles alone (!) of most of the 10/10 user ratings for this film are absurdly hilarious, their effusively giddy text even more so.
