Guillermo del Toro
Long before winning Best Picture and Best Director for The Shape of Water, Mexican director Guillermo del Toro has made a career of telling fantastic tales, rich with allegory and stunning visuals. From the incredible creatures in his fascism parable Pan's Labyrinth to the giant robots of Pacific Rim to the occult thrills of Cronos, it's a good time to explore his wildly imaginative filmography.
Staff Pick of the Day
Directed by Gareth Edwards
Before Rogue One and Godzilla, Gareth Edwards made his feature debut with Monsters, an eerie journey through a Mexico that's been infiltrated by otherworldly beings. The metaphor of the enormous wall at the American border built to keep the literal aliens out isn't a subtle one, but Edwards otherwise succeeds in his attempt to imagine what the world looks like after the typical alien invasion movie ends.
