    The Shape of Water


    "When he looks at me, the way he looks at me... He does not know, what I lack... Or - how - I am incomplete. He sees me, for what I - am, as I am."

    Enchanting. Brilliant cinematic execution with many interesting subleties. Fantastic production design and artistic vision. Guillermo del Toro is a master of his craft.

    This is such a fantastic movie.
    Took the chance of its incredibly late release here in Germany to rewatch this in cinemas.
    This is one of my favorite recent movies that I'll revisit time and time again.

    Extraordinary. This definitely deserves repeat viewings.
    Sublime performances.
    Although I haven't seen every film of his, this is definitely top-tier PTA.

    "You've never seen a miracle."


    As you all know, I love Blade Runner.
    And I loved this.
    A beautiful, poetic, touching, impressive return to the world of Blade Runner.
    Im still processing it all. Will watch it again as soon as possible and when I've collected my thoughts I'll attempt a full scale review.
    Certainly outstanding.

    By the way, for anyone wondering, the original Blade Runner is an absolutely required viewing.
