"[Alfonso Cuarón] first film to be set in his homeland since Y Tu Mama Tambien in 2001 is Alfonso Cuarón’s most personal film, and his most honest. It may even be his best. "
- Fionnuala Halligan, Screen International
"[Roma is] a majestic feat of filmmaking, an intimate portrait of a family that also serves as a broad portrait of a changing nation. Cuaron creates such a vibrant world that it demands to be seen on the biggest canvas possible."
- Barry Hertz, Globe and Mail
"Cuaron has made his most personal film to date, and the blend of the humane and the artistic within nearly every scene is breathtaking. It’s a masterful achievement in filmmaking as an empathy machine, a way for us to spend time in a place, in an era, and with characters we never would otherwise. "
- Brian Tallerico,
"Experiencing the lovely and lyrical Roma, you get the impression that at age 56, Cuarón not only wanted to get these still-vivid memories down on film, but that he also needed to. You’ll be glad he did. Because movies with this much empathy and humanity don’t come along very often."
- Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly
"A richly textured masterpiece, Roma is cinema at its purest and most human."
- Tomris Laffly,
"This period so full of dazzlingly intricate visual poetry, so teeming with sensory spirit, that trying to review it is a bit like trying to review all of life. Which may sound a bit grandiose, but Cuarón’s magnum opus provokes such turgid sentiment. "
- Richard Lawson, Vanity Fair
"The exploration of political upheaval, class and gender inequalities make this an important film, but the fact that it always remains grounded in its personal story makes Roma a compelling and emotional film, shot masterfully by a veteran director who finally created his masterpiece. "
- Rafael Motamayor Aguiton, IGN
"Roma follows in the tradition of neorealist filmmakers like Vittorio De Sica and Satyajit Ray. No one else is making movies like this today."
- Stephanie Zacharek, TIME Magazine
"An immersive bath in some of the most luxuriantly beautiful black-and-white images you've ever seen, this is the work of a great filmmaker who exhibits absolute control and confidence in what he's doing."
- Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter
