Roma ★★★★★

If I was going to be a filmmaker, I would use this amazing film by Alfonso Cuarón as inspiration. This is what good cinema is all about. Seeing it in the largest screen I can find, I was blown away. It’s a slice of life story that felt so real that I felt like I was in 1970s Mexico. Every shot is gorgeous. The sound is immersive. The camerawork is just breathtaking. And the acting especially by newcomer Yalitiza Aparicio felt like real people. 

It is a patient film but if you get used to the pacing, it’s worth the effort. Definitely a win for Netflix. Definitely see it in the theater or on your big screen with a nice sound system if it isn’t playing in a movie theater near you.
