    The Shape of Water

    ★★★★½

    Gorgeous, queer, romantic fantasia. A tale of those treated as inhuman finding a connection in troubled times.

    ★★½

    For a film that's so conceptually fascinating, I'm surprised I found this so unengaging. It's fine.

    ★★★½

    I wanna watch an entire movie about the artistic sister who writes poetry about death and has what I assume is the best decorated room in all of Iceland.

    ★★★★½

    "It's predictable."
    Fuck you.

    "It's not scary."
    Fuck you.

    "It cares more about style than substance."
    Fuck you.

    "It loses itself in the second act."
    Fuck you.

    "It's great."
    Right on.

    A delicious blend of romantic drama and haunted house films of an era long gone, with splashes of horror from a multitude of decades. It's beautiful, melancholy, and all too enjoyable to dismiss solely based on predictability. Assuming you allow the red snow to envelop you like a good old friend, you'll have a lovely time.
