Alfonso Cuarón Mexique, 2018

Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film Roma

Cuaron films often have a problem in their telling, either being undershot in creativity (Y tu mama) or having auteuristic directing in a shallow and non-auteuristic story (CoM). You can call those films melodramatic, but I’d be damned to call them in-succinct or non-emotive. Roma is. Drifting without dramatics for an eternity trying to earn worth VIA the sum of its parts and not earning a heart in its style.
