'The Shape of Water' (Dec. 8th)

Guillermo del Toro fans, rejoice – and welcome to the Mexican visionary's most sustained feat of creative imagination since 2006's Pan's Labyrinth. This dark fairy tale, set during the Cold War, concerns a mute janitor (the ever-wonderful Sally Hawkins) who falls for an amphibious creature (Doug Jones) being held in a secret government water tank.
