There is quite simply no other film like this being made right now, and few directors with the reach and ability to achieve it.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5

I can't recall another art movie so openly patronizing toward its subject, yet so self-flattering of its maker's largesse.
December 17, 2018
A vivid exploration of the world Cuaron came from and is bound to be a signature achievement for the director, who has managed to put together a captivating film that is thoughtful both in substance and style.

Crafted with stunning detail, [Cuarón] infuses substance into each scene.
December 17, 2018
There isn't much talking in Roma, nor are there many close-ups of the characters - faces and words are forgotten as time passes; and Alfonso Cuaron wants his film to feel like a half-remembered dream, washed away by the tide of time.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5

Cuaron's memory movie is a beautiful thing, and he does some fine camerawork as well.

I felt bad for the dog.
December 15, 2018
This Netflix original lacks agency within its' character beats that have a frustrating passivity to the narrative. [Alfonso] Cuarón's film comes to the brink of being cruel to its setting and characters.

Cuarón is dangling a cathartic hook as Cleo 'overcomes' personal tragedy with a heroic gesture. But the whiff of injustice still lingers at the film's end - to me, at least.

Roma isn't just a film, it's a tidal wave of empathy with an undeniable sense of momentum, worth watching on the biggest screen you can find.

A stellar and brilliant visual experience and deeply moving tale...

It's a love letter to mothers when all is said and done: biological and otherwise. And it succeeds in large part due to a stunning debut performance by Aparicio.

This is a film that is more fun to study than to be entertained by. It may be art but it is not great entertainment.

Roma is small life drama writ large.
December 14, 2018
Alfonso Cuarón's edgily political black-and-white epic of a family in 1970s Mexico City is as masterfully choreographed as Children of Men but more personally intimate.
December 14, 2018
A series of beautiful, gorgeous shots stitched together that excellently mask a thin story and largely uninteresting characters - Yalitza Aparicio aside.

Alfonso Cuaron's new film, "Roma," gives you so much to see in each new vignette, in every individual composition, in fact, that a second viewing becomes a pleasurable necessity rather than a filmgoing luxury.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4

It doesn't matter how you see it; Alfonso Cuarón's latest is a movie that turns you inside out, revealing a personal story on a grand scale.
