Cold War 2018 Black and white Polish film telling a damaged love story through a troupe of peasant folk singers/dancers performing traditional songs through the post war years of Soviet Poland. Not really my kind of film, but I did get quite a bit out of it. Gordon 3
Roma 2018 The deliberately mundane story of a house maid. I was struggling to see what the critics had seen in the film until a scene that singularly blew me away (waves). It was so wonderfully shot and acted that I fully welled up at the beauty and horror of it. Gordon 3.5
