  • Roma



    2 things I know in life: 1) Roma is an emotionally draining yet beautiful film and 2) Yalitza Aparicio deserves all the awards. Absolutely watch this in theaters if you get the chance, and support stories with people from backgrounds different from your own (economically, culturally, or in my case, both). Films have the power to transport viewers to another world, and watching Roma did just that.

    SXSW 2017 #9 - This film is FUCKED UP. Do you know the feeling of clenching your butt and holding your breath because you're so nervous? THAT'S THIS MOVIE FOR 45 MINUTES. The buildup is incredibly intense, and the film is basically an exercise in suspense and teasing everything until the last minute. But it's also a cathartic experience and has a wonderful payoff. Go into this blind, don't read anything about it. The trailer, poster, and synopsis are vague for a reason.
