Roma

Roma ★½

The spectacle is at times "fun", and I suppose in a cinema it may have been Quite Fun, but what the fuck is this? Cuaron is such a consistently bad storyteller - why did he think he could tell this story? why did he think he should tell this story? who wanted him to make this??

I am no Gravity fan, but I appreciate Cuaron's instincts there - front load the tech and hope people can forget how corny everything else is as a result.
