of course this was kind of underwhelming to a post millennial like me, but i just know that back in 1922, my cinephilic ass would’ve loved this. i mean just imagine what watching this in a theater back then was like!! even though i didn’t really like this film, its impact is undeniable and very much appreciated. can’t wait to see Robert Eggers’s adaptation!
my friends made me watch this because they loved it... I’m now just realizing that I don’t have a single friend with decent taste in movies... where can I find friends that like the movies that I like?
Dumbest shit I’ve ever watched I can’t believe this is the way that I decided to waste an hour and 40 minutes of my life
having a nanny/maid is reaaally popular in Latin America, and growing up in a Latin American country allowed me to relate to the love that the kids in this movie feel for Cleo, their nanny.
and the fact that Alfonso made this movie in honor of his childhood nanny is so so so beautiful i wish i could write a better review but im currently too busy drowning in my tears x
p.s. i just want to say that i think Alfonso Cuarón is hot
