Roma—directed by Alfonso Cuarón. Biodrama. 135 minutes Black & White 2018
The Story: Cleo scours and serves and washes and scrubs, so why does everyone love her?
Here are some reasons to stay away from Roma. It is:
* in black and white
• in Spanish
• slow
• episodic
• without a story
• of 2 hours 15 minutes duration
• about a teenage Aztec woman
• about a servant
• in a Mexico City neighborhood you would never visit
• a film with dog doo frequently visible
• also about four spoiled children
• a spectacle of puddles and mud and shacks
• graced with full frontal male nudity

See Roma if you like films
• that articulate the inarticulate
• like The Green Book, The Help, The Remains Of The Day, Mary Poppins, about a servant
• to take you out of yourself
• that stick to your ribs
• that are a moving masterpiece
