Hey, who better to rank a filmmaker’s movies than the filmmaker, right?!
With The Shape of Water in limited release – the full on, wide release begins on December 22 – now is a pretty good time to revisit Guillermo del Toro‘s body of work. Ever since bursting on the scene with Cronos back in 1993, Del Toro has given us countless gems, including fan faves The Devil’s Backbone, Hellboy and Pan’s Labyrinth.
But when Guillermo del Toro reflects on his work, which films does he consider to be his best? He was asked that very question in a Reddit Ask-Me-Anything session yesterday.
Del Toro’s ranking of his own films? He likes the following 6 the best, he noted:
- 1) The Shape of Water
- 2) The Devil’s Backbone
- 3) Pan’s Labyrinth
- 4) Crimson Peak
- 5) Hellboy II
- 6) Pacific Rim
Del Toro recently called The Shape of Water, which is generating Oscar buzz, his “proudest achievement,” so this particular ranking lines up with that sentiment.
