One of those movies that seems to imprint its gushing love affair with other movies-with the flickering euphoria of classic cinema-onto every image.
A.A. Dowd, AV Club
Blending '50s creature features, dark fairy tales and old-fashioned swooning romance, the latest film from writer-director Guillermo del Toro is pure movie magic.
Matthew Turner,
More than the scaly, expressive beauty of the creature, Sally Hawkins is the marvel here. Her flutter of sign-language and the sly wit and open ache of her eyes make her silence seem immaterial.
