Premiere movies on Netflix


The most important premiere of the month, at least for the one who writes these lines. Alfonso Cuarón’s new film is on another level. Some label it a masterpiece and, although I am not a friend of these grandiloquent terms, I understand them. It’s hard to talk about this story and do it justice. Cleo is a domestic worker who works for a family in Roma, a neighborhood of Mexico City, in the 70s. The way in which Cuarón mixes the historical and social context, the emotional journey of the characters and their characteristic visual virtuosity is masterful .
