Artists usually believe their work makes an impact and director Guillermo del Toro is no different. The director, who previously won the “Best Director” Oscar for his work on The Shape of Water, shared his view on his most recent film as part of a Deadline Hollywood article series today talking to Oscar nominees ahead of this year’s awards show.

“I thought there were so many possibilities in the book to talk about truth, lies and the rise of a liar. An almost unstoppable rise. It felt very very ripe for the moment we’re in. It’s perfect for today because noir always speaks about the moment it’s made in. Post-war noir speaks about that anxiety. The Long Goodbye as done by [Robert] Altman speaks about post-Vietnam and so on. This movie felt perfectly suited to discuss where we are today. The cruelty we have for each other and capacity we have to lie.”
