Alfonso Cuaron’s “Roma” has dominated the New York Film Critics Circle Awards, winning best film, best director and best cinematography.

The overwhelming show of support for “Roma” by the critics group on Thursday wasn’t a surprise. Cuaron’s film is Netflix’s most acclaimed release yet, and it’s widely expected to contend for best picture at the Academy Awards. Cuaron made the black-and-white 1970s-set film based on his own upbringing in Mexico City, serving as his own cinematographer.
