It is a highly emotional and enthralling love letter...

The personal connection of Alfonso Cuarón with the story moves to the screen in such a way that everything looks endearing and familiar. [Full review in Spanish]

I urge you to enjoy it on a big screen and more importantly as part of the communal experience that film - and especially this film - is meant to be.

It highlights how such projects can be used for self-reflection that's actually relevant to society. If it can be used to examine privilege, then it can lead to striking, honest works of beauty such as Roma.

The art direction in Rome is amazing. [Full review in Spanish]
December 18, 2018
Yes. It's a remarkable film, both intimate and epic, that is moving and often surprising.
December 18, 2018
Sometimes this feels like artifice, but the emotions are real enough, and Cuaron's tribute to Cleo, and to women like her, is heartfelt.

Childhood memories are powerful markers of identity and experiences; thanks to"Roma"for evoking such while one is unaware, as it works magic in creating new imagery to sustain them.

While the film portrays the larger picture of Mexico's sociopolitical issues, above all else, it's a personal movie.
December 17, 2018
This is an exceptional movie, powerful and stark, and beautiful.

Cuaron's signature long takes immerse the viewer in this environment, the camera slowly panning to drink in the details of this world he's recreated from his memory.
December 17, 2018
...the vast majority of movie-goers will not find Roma accessible at all...another "critic" movie that applauds abstract art and serves in-part as Cuaron hero-worship.
December 17, 2018
There is quite simply no other film like this being made right now, and few directors with the reach and ability to achieve it.
December 17, 2018
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.
December 17, 2018
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.
December 17, 2018
Cuaron's memory movie is a beautiful thing, and he does some fine camerawork as well.
December 17, 2018
A powerful piece of cinema.
December 16, 2018
It's a slice of life. You just watch everything unfold and it's beautiful.
