I hated this. Favreau not a talent. Sorry.
I actually really liked this but it is, at its best, not great, and at its worst, laughably bad.
A moving and meticulously rendered fantasy fable that is so rich in its many layers and textures, it forces the viewer to marvel at the seemingly limitless depths of del Toro’s fertile and bizarre imagination.
If this were a film about men and directed by a man, it would be dominating the Best Picture conversation.
