Roma ★★★★

2018 Ranked

Roma is beautiful both in its construction and story. A bit of a contradiction, the film is very observational - not too much transpires, but at the same time everything happens. Everything changes, but in the end, nothing changes. The film feels both tactile and fluid - it looks and sounds incredible, and the choice of black and white wonderfully complements its tale. The characters, though not completely fleshed out, feel very real, as do their conflicts. The film is at a distance but also incredibly intimate. Cleo is part of the family, but also an employee.
