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 Akira Kurosawa
One of the greatest collaborations between Akira Kurosawa and Toshiro Mifune, Throne of Blood moves the tragedy of Macbeth from Scotland to feudal Japan. The pitfalls of unchecked ambition are brutally laid bare in the film's final, paranoid act, culminating in one of the most memorable screen deaths of all time.
