Roma ★★★★

This film is artistically brilliant and extremely immersive. It feels like you’re a fly on the wall watching this family and captures that feeling better than any film I’ve ever seen. It’s powerful and real in a very special way. It’s also a film I have no immediate intention of ever watching again. As good as it is, there are still plenty of moments where it really drags. I get the reasoning behind it’s slow pace and I have no objection to it, but it made the first act pretty boring. There was also another scene that, while very important and impactful to the narrative, was pretty upsetting to watch and not something I really want to go through again. That doesn’t change the fact that this film is excellent and I would recommend it to any film fan.
