    The Shape of Water


    Yesssss. Beautifully romantic. Richard Jenkins for MVP (Sally Hawkins is perfect as well). I also appreciate how the movie portrays masturbation as the normal, commonplace act it is, rather than as a gag that only unappealing, crude characters participate in (Seth Rogen comedy, American Pie). 

    Probably the most I’ve ever liked Alexandre Desplat. 

    Creature design is great. Romance between creature and Hawkins is as convincing as any this year.

    PS : I’m a huge fan of the use of water as a way to transition from scene to scene.

    Truly brilliant. Everything you have heard is true. Pixar's greatest concept and quite possibly their greatest film.

    P.S. I relate the most with Sadness, and I couldn't be happier about that.
