Movie Critics
A.V. Club
"[Hawkins] is truly radiant in her role, conveying wellsprings of feeling without a line of dialogue, making sign language look like second nature..." -- Grade: B
A.A. Dowd (29 Nov 2017, )
Chicago Sun-Times
"Guillermo del Toro’s THE SHAPE OF WATER is like a beautiful painting you keep visiting at your favorite museum, because it continues to reveal its brilliant magic in new and different ways."
Richard Roeper (5 Dec 2017, )
Entertainment Weekly
"[It's] poignant, tender, funny, romantic, and flat-out breathtaking in its shoot-the-moon ambition." -- Grade: A
Chris Nashawaty (30 Nov 2017, )
Film Comment
"Like the director’s best works, THE SHAPE OF WATER blends lonely outcasts, chimerical beings, meticulous design, and mid-20th-century political strife."
Film Comment Staff (3 Nov 2017, )
Hollywood Reporter
"A dark-edged fairy tale as lovingly steeped in vintage movie magic as it is in hypnotic water imagery, this captivating creature feature marries a portrait of morally corrupt early-1960s America with an outsider tale of love and friendship molded by a master storyteller."
David Rooney (31 Aug 2017, )
Los Angeles Times
"[A] wonder to behold. Magical, thrilling and romantic to the core, a sensual and fantastical fairy tale with moral overtones, it’s a film that plays by all the rules and none of them, going its own way with fierce abandon."
Kenneth Turan (8 Dec 2017, )
New York Times
"THE SHAPE OF WATER is partly a code-scrambled fairy tale, partly a genetically modified monster movie, and altogether wonderful."
A. O. Scott (30 Nov 2017, )
RogerEbert.com
"The film starts in a wavering green underwater world, with a woman floating in what looks like a drowned Atlantis. The image is otherworldly, magical, and Alexandre Desplat's score is wistful and bittersweet."
Sheila O'Malley (30 Nov 2017, )
Rolling Stone
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Even as the film plunges into torment and tragedy, the core relationship between these two unlikely lovers holds us in thrall. Del Toro is a world-class film artist."
Peter Travers (27 Nov 2017, )
The Atlantic
"[A]n adult fairy tale that is at once deeply familiar and utterly original."
Christopher Orr (8 Dec 2017, )
The Guardian
"Guillermo del Toro’s new film is a ravishing 60s-set romance, sweet, sad and sexy."
Xan Brooks (31 Aug 2017, )
USA Today
"[S]tylish and stupendously crafted....Hawkins is terrific in her silent role, using her expressive face to sell Elisa’s dive into love and the complications that arise."
Brian Truitt (29 Nov 2017, )
Variety
"A ravishing, eccentric auteur’s imagining, spilling artistry, empathy and sensuality from every open pore, it also offers more straight-up movie for your money than just about any Hollywood studio offering this year."
Guy Lodge (31 Aug 2017, )
