Guillermo del Toro is one of my favourite directors. So to find out there was a LACMA exhibition on his work during my time in LA, it was a no brainer for my eighth day.
Del Toro is indeed one of the most imaginative directors of his generation who is sadly not making enough movies that he should. Known for his imaginative worlds and out-of-this-world monsters, del Toro is one of, if not, the leading directors of horror and fantasy. In his filmmaking career, del Toro has alternated between Spanish-language dark fantasy pieces, such as The Devil's Backbone (2001), and Pan's Labyrinth (2006), and more mainstream Hollywood fair such as Blade II (2002), Hellboy (2004), Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008), and Pacific Rim (2013).
