The End Credits


I kept expecting her to walk back down the stairs in the final shot— but the end credits were a reverse of the first shot, a locked down shot obsessed with the regularity of the landings of airplanes into CDMX. You were more likely to live on a flight path in a suburb, and it’s a nostalgic detail you might never have expected to remember until it’s precisely rendered on screen. Roma, ultimately, was full of that nostalgia.

DC was also a city of flight, low hanging helicopters, the sky gesturing without regularity someone important flying somewhere in both haste and intense protection.
