“I won't remember?”
“I'll remind you of everything.”
God, I love this movie so much. 🥺
(bumped to 5 stars)
Tender and sweet and beautiful and honest and human in all the ways a Mike Mills film can be.
As an uncle myself, I don't even have the words to express how much this resonated with me. This is one of those films that inspire you to be better; not by preaching but by just showing.
Heart-rending performances from Joaquin Phoenix, Gaby Hoffman and (a revelatory) Woody Norman.
Poignant writing/dialogue that never veers into maudlin or manipulative territory.
Sublime score by Aaron & Bryce Dessner of The National.
Superb film. One of 2021's best.
Words fail me.
Cinema is supposed to make you feel, right?
Roma is cinema.
I don't know if there are many other films in the last decade that have affected me quite like this.
After making astounding movies like Y Tu Mamá También, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Children of Men and Gravity, you would think that a director has somewhat reached his peak.
Not Alfonso Cuarón.
With Roma, he has given us his magnum opus.
