Downsizing First Reactions
Alex Billington: Payne’s Downsizing is like Charlie Kaufman, Spike Jonze, Mike Judge all rolled into one. Totally crazy, amusing concept that mostly works.
Robbie Collin: Downsizing, AKA Alexander Payne’s Avatar, AKA Honey, I Shrunk the Privilege. Swerves left every minute, destination v worth it.
Beatrice Behn: A wobbly social satire that has some great moments but in the end sticks to its name.
Angus MacKinnon: Much to enjoy & think about in DOWNSIZING but rambling plot and pace don’t do it any favours, nor hammy turn by Christoph Waltz
Jason Solomons: Can’t see Downsizing winning any little men statues – maybe nod for Matt Damon or supporting Hong Chau – film is droll yet weak
Peter Travers: Alex Payne’s Downsizing opened Venice. It’s a visionary masterwork. And newcomer Hong Chau is omg-great. The bad taste of summer is gone.
Ben Croll: DOWNSIZING is Payne’s IDIOCRACY, using a sci-fi premise to land satirical hits on US culture. Many hits land, but damn is the film uneven.
Xan Brooks: Alexander Payne’s Downsizing a lovely, skittish, spirited giant of a film. Beautifully played by Matt Damon & Christoph Waltz
Magdalena Miedl: Payne’s DOWNSIZING is like the proverbial box of chocolates, bit heavy on the morals but hugely entertaining. Good opening film.
Giuseppe Rossetti: DOWNSIZING A very original dramedy. Maybe a bit confused but still delightful. Chau and Waltz steal the scene (3.5/5).
Adam Ray Palmer: Downsizing is a weird one. Enjoyable, comedic & is a real thinker. Waltz a delight again, Damon a bit wet but worth a watchAugust 30, 2017 at 9:48 am #1202199233
So would I. I applied for volunteering there and they replied that they don’t use volunteers. They don’t know what they’re missing, lol.August 30, 2017 at 9:59 am #1202199266

Those twitter reactions for Downsizing are a little more mixed than the critic reviews up so far on Metacritic (90 with 7 reviews including 2 100s). Chau seems pretty likely considering even the more negative reviews have singled her out. Not sure what to make of Waltz….August 31, 2017 at 9:53 am #1202200259
Can’t wait to read official reviews, this film is getting more and more interesting to my eyes.August 31, 2017 at 10:03 am #1202200277

Shape of water getting rave reviews: 100% in RT by 8 critics by now. Very liked by Te Guardian, Variety and THR; calling it a big heart movie, even though neither was super-excited.
First Reformed by Paul Schrader had its screening too, getting mixed reviews. It’s deep and spiritual, but nothing to remember. Ethan Hawke collaboration was the highlight apparently.August 31, 2017 at 11:09 am #1202200348

The Shape Of Water First Reactions
Xan Brooks: Del Toro’s The Shape of Water is a ravishing, nourishing monster movie romance. Red meat for the senses with some sugar on top
Paul O’Callaghan: For first 1/2 hour or so, I thought The Shape of Water might be an all-timer. It’s not, but by far GDT’s best since Pan’s Labyrinth. The central romance didn’t quite work for me, I was more invested in everything going on around it. But it’s still pretty great!
One Room With A View: THE SHAPE OF WATER is a wonderland of cinematic delights and horrors. It’s pure Guillermo del Toro and a sincere joy
Chris Vognar: Loved The Shape of Water, GDT’s Cold War fable. Visually sumptuous monster movie/love story. Commanding and moving.
Robbie Collin: The Shape of Water is basically Creature from the Black Lagoon directed by Douglas Sirk. ADORED.
Guy Lodge: I lost my heart to THE SHAPE OF WATER, and I don’t even want it back.
Beatrice Behn: The Shape of Water is an incredibly intelligent & sensitive pondering of toxic masculinity & its consequences. Chapeau.
Dave Calhoun: Guillermo Del Toro’s THE SHAPE OF WATER is gloriously eccentric and imaginative. All the swoons for Sally Hawkins.
Alex Billington: Omg omg omg The Shape of Water is spectacular. What an extraordinarily special film. One of Del Toro’s best films, hands down. Oh my. Oh I am SOOOO in love with Sally Hawkins. She better damn well get at least a nomination for The Shape of Water. Guillermo’s most beautiful love story yet, infused with so much passion for cinema, for romance, for the power of love.
Giuseppe Rossetti: THE SHAPE OF WATER Such a brilliant, spectacular and intense love story. Del Toro at his best, Hawkis is masterful. I weep a lot.
Andreas Wiseman: The Shape Of Water will be in the awards conversation. Hawkins, del Toro, production design, score, script, possibly Shannon and Jenkins.
