Who payed the critics
This is a tender, generous movie that likes its characters and presents them as real people, full of flaws and strengths.
There is, somehow, an interesting story here, as well as some good acting. There are also some good scenes
Like the great film, it's made with a great deal of visible affection both in front of and behind the camera.
The Shape of Water is one of the cult-classic which combines a blend of classic and modern cultures. This is why Oscar love the movie apart from the premise which I guess seems simple, predictable, and ridiculous as I always see on the local television as romance crappy story. Guillermo Del Toro shows a simple blend of it with the fantasy technique that he always used in all his movies. The visual is one of the gorgeous pieces that ever existed, Sally Hawkins is incredible while doing a sign language, a mute princess. The set-up and production design are flawlessly underwhelmed when the film gets a lot of reputation at Oscar and the world. Some social issues may be fairly simple in this film but it can be used as a reference. But, this is a fairy tale that mixes adult components. In a nutshell, it's just a human being had sex with fish.
In general, IMDb's ratings are pretty accurate due to its algorithms based on large amount of user input. However this one is very under rated due to fewer user input. Instead, the rating should consider the Critic's score in movies like this.Unlike Hollywood big commercial products, this movie's main focus is Art and Romance. In here, STORY is the key. A calming blue atmosphere sets the tone, slow paced but beautifully executed movement leads the plot, 60s time setting brings back vintage feel when America was great where certain character was main stream, psychological details deepens the emotions, open ending provides enough room for imagination and joy, logic chain is clear and strong. There's none unnecessary stuff in this movie, everything is just the right amount, like cooking. like art.I have not seen such a great movie for a long time. It is not the "Forrest Gump" type of movie, but it deserves every single bit of OSCAR.
I never write review on IMDb, but because of this film I have to do it.First of all, I totally don't understand why this film won the Oscar. I have never seen a more cliché and overrated movie in my life. Don't waist time and watch Three Billboards Outside Ebbing.
Very silly......not worthy watching let ago receiving the biggest award
