ZombAid’s review published on Letterboxd:
Everything I hoped it would be!
A sincere and incredible beautiful drama around a small story in a small district of a family and their housemaid.
So many shots were ready to be printed canvases to fill some museum of Mexican culture and art. Every single award this movie takes home is an honest reward in this specific art form and every single nomination is the least this movie deserves.
I really don't want to talk about the movie all that much, because it such a nice experience to witness everything for yourself for the first time. All I have to add is that the digital camera black and white photography is something else and first time actress Yalitza Aparicio is a revelation. Maybe Alfonso Cuarón's best and certainly one of the best of the year.
And the best thing: I don't have to wait 6 months to buy the Blu-Ray or have to pay an exorbitant amount of money for further cinematic consumption. No my dear friends, only a week from now Netflix is going to stream this incredible masterpiece.
