| All creatures r created equal.....
Saw this in a theatre. Got enticed due to its huge Oscar nominations otherwise not a fan of Del torro's films n his last movie Crimson peak was a complete letdown for me. Surprisingly got impressed with this film as Del torro transported viewers into the evenings n wee hours of the 60s. He dealt with issues ranging from the authoritarian militarism, brutality, racism, anti-immigration, homophobia and workplace sexual harassment very well. The star cast n performances r top notch.
