    The Shape of Water

    ★★★★

    Masterful blend of genres -- two parts cold war era monster flick, two parts whimsical romance, with a dash of magical realism thrown into the mix -- beautifully styled. Loved the cinematic world del Toro created here.

    Sorry to Bother You

    ★★★½

    Uncanny how much it echoed my own experiences making cold calls as a temp back in the day. Overall, the vibe reminded me a little of "Sleepers" era Woody Allen, where the satire is absurd and so far ranging not all the jokes come in for a landing. Still, it was brash and entertaining, and it hit way more than it missed for me.
