"The King has no Clothes"
I understand why this movie is a work of art. I just don't know why it is a work of cinematic art. We are watching cinema, not video art.
Underlying cinema is a story. The story has characters, that represent the complexity of the human condition - they have hopes, disappointments, successes and failures. They have different traits.
Roma is a work of visual art. It has no story that captivates you. It has no characters that have any real sense of depth or complexity. If it's leading actress wins the Oscar it will be a shame. She was just a doll in Cuarón's autobiography.
In a nutshell - it is boring.
The leading movie critic in israel called it one of the most important movies of the century.
I think the "king has no clothes".
