    Another lousy parasitic rip-off movie from the wildly overpraised Del Toro. Polished trash.

    Beautiful love story superimposed on a fascistic political backdrop. Visionary...what great films should be. Don't miss seeing this film in a movie theater; it deserves a BIG SCREEN viewing.

    I could not figure out while watching this movie why it felt so familiar. I believe it was the feelings of wonder and anticipation, joy and fear, delight and premonition evoked throughout the movie. Stunning visuals, subtle humour, sympathetic main characters and properly sinister bad guys. Great movie!

    The most welcome and notable thing about The Shape of Water is its generosity of spirit, which extends beyond the central couple. See it.

    A weird, strange, funny, beautiful, somewhat disturbing fairy tale that is pretty mesmerizing.
