Roma ★★★★½

We are alone. No matter what they tell you, we women are always alone.
-Sra. Sofía

I don't even have the words. First off I wasn't ready for how this small and intimate film is just gorgeous too look at. It was almost distracting at times. Since I pay little attention to the news around me and what people are talking about, while watching the film I assumed the DP was Emmanuel Lubezki because this is a Alfonso Cuarón film... but it's not him! It's Cuarón! (Everyone reading this is like "Yeah... we know.") He was like "My multi Oscar winning DP isn't available... I got this." Of course he's not that egotistical, I just read an interview where he said that his mantra for filming was "What would Chivo do?" (Lubezki's nickname)

We get a brief glimpse into the life of Cleo (Yalitza Aparicio) witnessing her joys and heartbreaks. It's not always easy to watch, but it's done with such incredible passion you can't look away. Incredible film.
