Mexico’s Guillermo Del Toro is a special filmmaker. He is a spinner of modern fairytales that vibrate with emotion and a visual craftsman with few peers. His new film, The Shape of Water has just started playing, and by most accounts it is one of his finest works. Del Toro stopped by Reddit yesterday to host an ‘Ask Me Anything’, and after reading it I couldn’t help but think that our list of movie industry men who we would be heartbroken to find out were abusers could be rewritten to basically just have Del Toro in every position. Thoughtful, kind, and possessing a wonderful way with words, his AMA is a real treat to read.
