Both intimately small and sweepingly epic.

The result, albeit a masterpiece, is a textbook example of the male gaze and the inflated masculine ego behind it.

Cuarón has made more entertaining movies for sure, but none so heartfelt and even soulful.

Every frame of the film could be isolated and hung on a wall, and maybe that's what should be done with it. Roma is a beautiful boring movie.

The simple and realistic storytelling discloses individual complexities that made me care for these characters with all my soul.

Could a Netflix movie win the best film Oscar come February 24? You better believe it.

Alfonso Cuarón's Roma is a soulful cinematic prayer. It's an open letter which embraces and reverences childhood, class struggles and politics.

For all of the highlights on Cuarón's resume, Roma sees the director enter another realm.
January 27, 2019
...a masterful endeavor from a seriously talented filmmaker.

Cuarón fills every corner of the frame, just as Fellini did, so that the eye has to roam the screen as though scouring a fresco. But for all the bustle and brio, it's a visually lucid movie.

It is ravishingly shot and at times deeply moving.

However easy it is to dismiss a static or slow camera as performing attentiveness, it works - I have never looked so hard at soapsuds.

It feels like something students will be studying in film school for many years to come and yet unlike many arthouse pieces it made me cry. I was invested in these people and their lives

Cuaron is a bit too close to the material, and most moviegoers will have to do a lot of research to truly get and appreciate the movie. Still, a true work of art.

With beautifully profound storytelling, strong characterizations, meticulous attention to period detail and heartfelt direction, Roma is one of the best films of 2018 and it deserves all the praise from critics.

Yalitza Aparicio underacts so wonderfully, does so little with words, that we almost always know what her character is feeling: when she is contented, entertained, worried, frightened.
January 17, 2019
Roma is an act of understanding-an investigation by Cuarón of where he came from, and of what and who made him-and it's moving in the way that an honest and generous investigation of that kind can be.
January 17, 2019
So much happens in Roma. It is so bursting with life, Mexican life.
January 13, 2019
A wonderful homage to our most precious commodity and superb cinematography

This time, it's personal.
