I enjoyed it but it's not as amazing as the oscar buzz is making it out to be.
The plot followed a relatively traditional pattern.
Pros: Stunning direction and design; great performances, espec. by Sally Hawkins in the lead; terrific ending.
Cons: Few unpredictable or surprising moments in the plot or dialogue; Michael Shannon's cardboard villain that even his talent can't do anything with; extremely lazy 1960 "period detail" (housewives, Cadillacs, Jell-O molds, etc.).
Definitely worth a watch, but I think I'd prefer any other best picture nominee this year to win over this one. (So far I've seen 7 of the other 8).
