Critic Reviews of "The Shape of Water"Chicago ReaderDecember 26, 2017
The movie's worldview is as easy to like as the protagonist and her friends, but del Toro lays it on so thick that there's no room for counterargument or even independent thought.Detroit NewsDecember 22, 2017
"The Shape of Water" is director Guillermo del Toro's finest film, a lovely, empathetic tribute to Old Hollywood, monster movies, outsiders and love that could only come from the mind of the visionary filmmaker.New York ObserverDecember 19, 2017
The more I try to find some kind of justifiable meaning and relevance, the more I find The Shape of Water a loopy, lunkheaded load of drivel.Houston ChronicleDecember 14, 2017
The visual stylist spins an adult fairy tale that takes elements from "Beauty and the Beast" and recasts them in an alternative universe that's a wonderfully rendered twist on our own.Minneapolis Star TribuneDecember 14, 2017
An enchanting re-imagining of "Beauty and the Beast," it is an unforgettably romantic, utterly sublime, dazzling phantasmagoria.St. Louis Post-DispatchDecember 14, 2017
"The Shape of Water" is one of the best films of the year.Concrete PlaygroundJanuary 07, 2018
Floats through its own stream of romance and drama... entrancing and wonderful.Cinema SignalsJanuary 06, 2018
For me, this exo-world approach to metaphorical messaging pretty much died with the tide.Film ThreatJanuary 05, 2018
The Shape of Water is a cinematic fight for that world, one that could be born out of creativity and dreaming. Out of romance. Out of the movies.Good Times Santa CruzJanuary 05, 2018
Del Toro's sheer joy of filmmaking is contagious, from precision chase scenes and glimpses of period TV shows like Mr. Ed and Dobie Gillis, cannily chosen to inform the story, to his gleeful homage to vintage Hollywood musicals...Orlando WeeklyJanuary 03, 2018
For all the sumptuous style and lush visuals, The Shape of Water is, at its heart, a simple fish-out-of-water story, both figuratively and literally.The Monitor (McAllen, TX)January 02, 2018
The Shape of Water is a eternal story for our time, about loving and being loved, speaking and being heard, and compassion for humanity.
