| I was NOT mentally and emotionally prepared for this!
I can't believe the pure emotion Alfonso Cuarons "Roma" got out of me. On a technical level, this movie is as great as a movie can get. In terms of cinematography, directing, editing, sound & art design, setting, color grading and especially performances this is beyond perfection. Cuaron uses extremely long takes to evoke certain emotions and put you into 1970 Mexico. Unlike everything else the characters feel so real, so down to earth and so drowned by the world.

And yet Cuaron manages to put some magic into his movie and the brutality of his realism. I will not spoil, but only say forest fires. There are two more absolutely stunning, breathtaking and completely destructive scenes in the movie the had me emotionally out of my seat. The performance by the movies main star is worth the Oscar, if anything.

This is cruel cinema. Cinema at its best, but cinema that isn't easy to swallow. Objectively this is easily in the top 5 films of 2018 and it is something that you really have to watch on the big screen to appreciate all of Cuarons love for detail and symbolism.
