One of the best movies I have seen in a long time: "Crimson Peak" by Belen Delgado

I haven't written about movies I have seen for a long time now but after seeing "Crimson Peak" I felt that I have to do it to inspire my friends that can appreciate movies like this to go and see it. It is unbelievable how divided the audience is regarding this film, either you love it or you hate it. According to Rottentomatoes reviews, critics scored it with a 70% and the spectators with a 61%. I cannot understand those who cannot see the sensibility, beauty and excellent photography of Guillermo's del Toro horror love story. Those who complained that it is not a scary movie, well you are right, it was never meant to be one... It is more of a Gothic love story and you can clearly see the director's style from previous movies such as " Pan's Labyrinth" or "Julia's Eyes". I have not seen a movie of Guillermo del Toro that have not loved and this one is no exception. I really enjoyed the vibrant colours, the scenes with the butterflies , the delicate clothing from that era, the beauty of the slow movements of the protagonist hair, blood, ghosts and chemistry between the protagonists. One of the highlights for me was the last scenes between the 2 female protagonists that lead to the end and the dance between Edith & Thomas with the candle. What a poetic way of telling a story.. Thanks Guillermo !! Last but not least if you have not seen the other movies from Guillermo that I have mentioned above, go and watch them, they are very original and fascinating.
