The end is nigh as we wrap up Guillermo del Toro’s filmography with films from his periods of growth: Mimic, Crimson Peak, and
That Fish Sex Movie From Toronto The Shape of Water. We discuss invaluable lessons Charles S Dutton taught del Toro on the set of Mimic, and how that film-making experience forever changed his work, how Crimson Peak served as the perfect companion bookend to The Devil’s Backbone, and the profound emotional impact of The Shape of Water. All of this, and infinitely more, as we come to the end of our month-long First to Last look at Guillermo del Toro.
As it begins, so it shall end. Next week we wrap up with the monsters that followed us home; for Bob, Hellraiser III and Return to Oz; for Ariel, Legend and The Neverending Story. Tune in next week to find out how these films impacted our relationship with horror, monsters, our sense of self, sexuality, and identity.
