Is this how Guillermo Del Toro got the idea for Shape of Water?

You can't be a fish in a shark based society... or can you?
★★★½ review by Chris on Letterboxd
Arguably the best movie about a fishman I have ever seen.
The Incredible Mr. Limpet now drops to second.
★★★★ review by Bon Morrison on Letterboxd
Very funny from the get-go but quickly takes a darker, more serious tone as the film goes on (with humor spursed in every now and then still). A critical satire on government, corruption, human rights, and even religion - the film pulls no punches in it's subtlety on how it wants to address these issues. While some may find the satire a bit too obvious, I thought it was very well done. Had some issues with the ending as it dragged on a bit but overall this was a great, well-acted, and intelligently-written film that is equal parts funny and smart.
