Roma ★★★★★

How rare and how wonderful to watch a film and immediately know, with no need for the omniscient lens of time, that you are watching a masterpiece. Not just in the context of your own subjective viewings, but also in the larger narrative of the director's filmography and the modern film canon. This is emotionally riveting, precise work that is one of the most intelligent recreations of memories that I've ever seen.
