Guillermo del Toro on Godzilla

Leave a comment

Guillermo del Toro speaks about Godzilla during an interview on Pacific Rim, his homage to the kaiju genre.  Godzilla gets a bad rap as schlocky 1950s B-movie (one unfortunately borne out by most of its sequels), but del Toro is spot-on here: there’s something dark and conceptually great at the heart of that first movie, this cloud of angst and nuclear fear, with humanity suffering the consequences of awakening these unthinking forces of nature, personified in a monster.
