reelfeels’s review published on Letterboxd:
The way del Toro balances the dark, gothic fairy tale elements with the precarious real world is something to behold. Its a tragic narrative filled with magical, outstanding creature design and effects, memorable characters (oh Ofelia!) and a unique sound design. The faun alone has about 3 different sounds going on at the same time, all the time. A first watch, yes, but not the last.
