Big Screen Effects: The Shape of Water

the shape of water

The Shape of Water is a gorgeous fantasy/romance from Guillermo del Toro and has 11 Oscar nominations. The film is visually stunning, the color grading is sublime,  and the soundtrack is wonderful. It takes place during the cold war and is a love story about a merman and a mute cleaning lady. Michael Shannon plays a really great villain too!
