Fantastic, enjoyable, informative
11 November 2015 | by KaiLawsonSee all my reviews

It was great to see the cultural aspect in regards to this piece with Florida After 60 years where the scenes were actually shot for the film. I was amazed how much of a fan Del Toro is, and it makes sense that these were the things that served for his own inspiration and influences. I don't particularly like to write lengthy reviews, so I shall keep it at a very short length. I thoroughly enjoyed it and it is great to know some of the history behind the things that were groundbreaking of yesterday that helped influence and create and inspire films of today. I think this is a valuable piece for any modern filmmaker to reflect upon when moving forward with their own work.
