The Shape Of Water (mini-review++)


Review process: two scores assigned: (I don’t believe in Rotten Tomatoes. I just believe in me)

(***all-purpose SPOILER ALERT*** there may be some in this review)

(1) Shark Wrighter (SW) Score: Based on a sum of 5 sub-scores (acting, directing, writing/story, cinematography &/or animation &/or effects, editing) with 1 being terrible and 10 being terrific.

(2) Octopuses (0-5 🐙, with 5 being fantastic and 0 being feces)

The mini-review:

The Shape of Water

acting 8

directing 9

writing 9

effects 10

editing 10

SW score: 46

5 out of 5 octopi

++ Guillermo del Toro finally put it all together. Ok, that’s not true. Pan’s Labyrinth was fantastic but it wasn’t perfect. This cold war fairy tale is a visual and soulful gift. It’s not perfect but I’m not sure you could get any closer.
