    Beautiful love story superimposed on a fascistic political backdrop. Visionary...what great films should be. Don't miss seeing this film in a movie theater; it deserves a BIG SCREEN viewing.

    I could not figure out while watching this movie why it felt so familiar. I believe it was the feelings of wonder and anticipation, joy and fear, delight and premonition evoked throughout the movie. Stunning visuals, subtle humour, sympathetic main characters and properly sinister bad guys. Great movie!

    The most welcome and notable thing about The Shape of Water is its generosity of spirit, which extends beyond the central couple. See it.

    A weird, strange, funny, beautiful, somewhat disturbing fairy tale that is pretty mesmerizing.

    I really enjoyed watching the shape of water. It's creature of the black lagoon meets beauty and the beast. Hawkins is amazing as the lead and Zelda had me laughing a few times.

    This was SUCH an interesting and delightfully odd film. If you love del Toro or quirky/unique movies then you must give The Shape of Water a chance. Sally Hawkins is downright incredible and deserves an Oscar nod for keeping the film together without uttering a single line of dialogue for nearly the entire run time. The makeup, cinematography, and score are all utterly mesmerizing and combine for a wonderful experience. Definitely watch it!

    This film isn't for everyone. For those who say they didn't care about the main character and the creature, it's an allegory. You don't have to. Visually stunning and tight storytelling throughout the entire film. The ending gives the entire film its meaning and message. But again, if you take the film literally and conventionally, you will be disappointed. But if you see its poetry and intent, you will be deeply moved.

    Fantastic director Guillermo Del Toro clearly put everything he had into this wonderful monster movie/romance, from a beautiful, labyrinthian visual scheme to a powerful story of love and empathy. Very different from any other movie presently out, and very refreshing.
