Roma, the new film by Alfonso Cuarón is an absolute masterpiece, one of the best films of the last decade. Even though the film is now streaming on Netflix it should be seen on the big screen, shot on 65mm film in black and white, each frame is stunning.
"The most personal project to date from Academy Award-winning writer/director Alfonso Cuarón (Gravity, Children of Men, Y Tu Mamá También), Roma follows Cleo (Yalitza Aparicio), a young domestic worker for a family in the middle-class neighborhood of Roma in Mexico City.
Delivering an artful love letter to the women who raised him, Cuarón draws on his own childhood to create a vivid and emotional portrait of domestic strife and social hierarchy amidst the political turmoil of the 1970s. Roma is Mexico’s Official Selection for Best Foreign Language Film consideration at the 91st Academy Awards."
The NY Times has a terrific article:After ‘Gravity,’ Alfonso Cuarón Had His Pick of Directing Blockbusters. Instead, He Went Home to Make ‘Roma.’
The director’s new film tells the story of his childhood in Mexico — but seen from the vantage of the domestic worker who raised him.https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/13/magazine/alfonso-cuaron-roma-mexico-netflix.html
