michael’s review published on Letterboxd:
alfonso amazes me once again. an absolutely incredible movie i wish i didn’t put it off so long. yalitza was snubbed she gave a beautiful performance and with no prior acting either!!! the scene that is shown in the poster on here was so heartbreaking, hearing cleo say “i didn’t want her” broke me down immediately. the shots in this movie absolutely breathtaking and the long takes at the beginning and end credits were a great touch, this movie deserves all the praise it got. this is how women characters SHOULD be written!
