Guillermo del Toro - The Works

Guillermo del Toro is an imaginative powerhouse of a director. Being one of the modern dons of both the fantasy and horror genres, he’s an incredibly versatile filmmaker. The tone of Del Toro’s work in blending these genres can range from something fun and action-packed like ‘Hellboy’ to something as brutally emotional and heartbreaking as Pan’s Labyrinth. He’s a man who has an impeccably thorough understanding of storytelling, character and above all, inspiring wonder in the audience. With all of the extreme care and attention to detail that Guillermo puts into his work, his filmography feels like a slew of passion projects. While editing this entry in ‘The Works’ it was amazing to watch this particular director evolve from making smaller horror flicks like ‘Cronos’ to massive summer blockbusters like ‘Pacific Rim’ (which Joel is incredibly excited to see this July) without losing touch with his craft. You can experience that now too. So sit back, relax, and dive into the imagination of Guillermo del Toro.
