"The only time I have experienced bad behaviour, and it remains one of the worst experiences of my life, was in 1997, when I did 'Mimic' for Miramax," independent.co.uk <http://independent.co.uk/> quoted Del Toro as saying.
"It was a horrible, horrible, horrible experience."
"I was interfered with in plot, in casting, in the type of action. They second-guessed all the time. I never had a single day that was pleasant."
"I learned to make my camera more fluid, more a storytelling character; it really helped me develop the language that now I practice on 'The Shape Of Water'.
"It taught me to edit every day because I was always expecting to be fired.
I'll have a cut of the movie six days after wrap. I think adversity is good... that is very Catholic of me."
"The Shape of Water" is leading the 90th Academy Awards' nomination pack with nods in a maximum of 13 categories.
