'Roma' tops; West Hawaii Today 'best films of 2018' list
Alfonso Cuaron's masterpiece is about growing up with a nanny and a single mom in Mexico City in the 1970s. It's a tribute to the women in his life told in Spanish, and filmed in black and white, with the director also serving as cinematographer and editor. An enriching, lyrical, tone poem that bubbles with so much life you swear it's a documentary. A true work of art that resonates on multiple levels. Thrilling, heartbreaking, whimsical, lovely, emotional, wide-eyed and wonderful with an Oscar level performance by school teacher turned actress, Yalitza Aparicio.
