Alfonso Cuarón Mexique, 2018

Matthew Martens's rating of the film Roma

A film sure to elicit vastly different responses depending on one's degree of familiarity with the macro-events it depicts, Roma deploys a very real historical trauma as political correlative to personal and domestic crises. What remains? Exquisite compositions, extraordinary immersion--for which surround-sound trumps screen size--plus lots of beautiful, buzzing, human confusion, and, ok, a little facile symbolism.
