Alfonso Cuarón Mexique, 2018

Huey McEvoy's rating of the film Roma

Cuarón is the modern master of mise-en-scène: there is precisely nothing in any frame of his films that he does not want you to see. As with Children of Men, it's the details in the background that inform the thrust of the narrative and characters. There are at least a dozen scenes of such breathtakingly beauty that I could scarcely believe what I was seeing.
