Alfonso Cuaron's “Roma” is the undisputed champ of 2018 when it comes to critics awards. It won the Critics' Choice Awards best picture prize last night, adding to its tally which included theNew York Film Critics Circle, the Los Angeles Film Critics Association and the Chicago Film Critics Association. Cuaron's fellow Mexican filmmaker, Guillermo del Toro, has called "Roma" one of his top five favorite movies of all time and took to Twitter last night to further expand on his love for the film by launching his 10 personal observations about “Roma.”
Back in September Iwroteabout the film and its significance to water: "Throughout his film, Cuaron continuously turns his ever-watchful eye on the importance of water and its connection to both life and death. No coincidence then that the film's first and last masterfully conceived frames have the simple imagery of soapy fluid washing away on pavement. "
