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 Sidney Lumet
Part of a cycle of 1970s conspiracy films and a sharp satire of the TV business, Network bitterly critiques corporate culture's impact on the spread of information and the resulting cult of the TV guru. As directed by Sidney Lumet and scripted by Paddy Chayefsky, Network takes a relatively straightforward approach to its outrageous acts, lending a disturbingly matter-of-fact tone to the corporation's most venal and dehumanizing machinations.
