The Shape of Water is Guillermo Del Toro’s best film since Pan’s Labyrinth and quite honestly, might be his best film ever. First off, Sally Hawkins pulls off an amazing performance as Elisa. Hawkins sells a character who is mute using all of her acting talents outside of speech and she nails it. With this performance, Hawkins is a clear front runner for Best Actress. And she’s not alone in putting in a wonderful performance. Michael Shannon’s Richard Strickland is truly a hideous man who is the true monster and villain of this film. Shannon’s character continually morphs into a despicable human being throughout the film. Richard Jenkins, Octavia Spencer and Michael Stuhlbarg also put in great performances.
