Tatsuhito’s review published on Letterboxd:
Me around 30 minutes into the film: "I don't know what to make of this... It's a bit slow and I don't quite get the political backdrop of this story. But let's see where it goes..."
Me at the end of the film: "OH MY GOD SOMEBODY SEND ME A THERAPIST MY HEART IS BROKEN INTO MILLION PIECES. *Crying Uncontrollably*"
A film that is epic and intimate, beautiful and sad, a story that is personal yet has universal appeal. "ROMA" is without a doubt Cuarón's best film to date. Although there were times where I found myself overwhelmed by its technical achievements, the story did sneak up on me and worked on a deeply personal and emotional level.
I have to see it again and I WANT to see it again. Experience this on the big screen if you can (although it works perfectly on a small screen as well.)
