The Shape of Water
I went to see The Shape of Water today. It’s an original and affecting film. I knew from the commentary that it was about a romance between a woman and a sea creature, but what I hadn’t heard is that it is a searing indictment of American brutality and stupidity. I wonder whether the Academy noticed this.
Nice to see this film win the Oscar (along with its director). But I have yet to see any awareness of its anti-American sentiments. Is this national amnesia or is it that people think they have got beyond those old attitudes?
