Guillermo Del Toro calls The Shape of Water his best film

We are only a few weeks away from the release of THE SHAPE OF WATER, writer-director Guillermo Del Toro's newest creature feature. And as we all wait to see what we think of the film, one filmmaker already believes it is Del Toro's best film.

Del Toro himself. In a recent interview with Collider, Del Toro said that THE SHAPE OF WATER is his favorite of his own films.

Del Toro on THE SHAPE OF WATER:

I’ll tell you, it doesn’t get more personal than Shape of Water for me. I am the proudest of it. It’s my favorite movie that I’ve done. Just to be in the conversation is really, really great. You work very hard to get the movie out there and have it seen, and the movie does connect, beautifully, with an audience. It has an enormous heart. I’ve seen it 190 million times and I still cry in three or four moments in the movie. It’s even more than that. There are one or two scenes that I cannot even describe without getting moved. I cannot see the clip without getting moved. It’s a very personal movie. I love it. I call it “a fairytale for troubled times” because it’s an ointment against the world, where we’re waking up every morning with worse news.

So where does that leave such classics as PAN'S LABYRINTH and THE DEVIL'S BACKBONE on Del Toro's list of personal best? Well, he answered that question too:

Shape is the first, and then Devil’s, and then Pan’s [Labyrinth].
