tried to give this a rating lower than five stars, but i just had too much fun watching it!!! not sure how i feel about the exoticization of the circus people, also the pacing was off at times and the story felt too all over the place. BUT: the soundtrack saved all of these flaws i almost cried it was all so beautiful
to be honest i'm kind of speechless.
what a weird film. what a wonderful, wonderful film. incredible. the cinematography was fun and interesting, the script was amazing, the performances were all phenomenal.
for some reason, i feel kind of proud of guillermo del toro. HE DID THAT.
there is no other film like this, i'm pretty sure. HE. DID. THAT.
