Easily one of the best directors working in Hollywood today, Guillermo del Toro is a mystery. Coming from Mexico, his work is steeped in a twisted worldview of fantasy, and damn, if it isn’t amazing!
I’ve loved his work ever since his first film Chronos and with each passing year, his work gets better and better. Whether it’s his Hollywood fare such as Hellboy I&II, Blade II or Pacific Rim, or his Spanish work such as The Devils Backbone & Pan’s Labyrinth, I can’t get enough. Now, he’s won his first major award, walking away with a Golden Globe for Best Director for his latest film The Shape of Water, and it’s time we learn more about him.
