In addition to the blockbuster's commercially successful, "Dunkirk" is a war drama that the awards circuit has fallen in love with.

"Dunkirk" manages to be crystal clear without many words - masterful visual storytelling on an epic scale. When people try to talk, they're often drowned out by the rat-a-tat of gunfire or by a Hans Zimmer score hell-bent on amplifying the throb of a ship's pistons, the scream of diving bombers.

With his dreamlike love story “The Shape of Water,” del Toro doesn’t just rebound from that disappointing misstep, he comes roaring back in triumph with the best film of his stellar career. An enchanting re-imagining of “Beauty and the Beast,” it is an unforgettably romantic, utterly sublime, dazzling phantasmagoria.
