78% Brigsby Bear (2017) Brigsby Bear will surprise on several levels, including Mooney's strong writing and acting display, the film's intangible, transcendent tone and sheer originality.‐ Film Inquiry

93% Marjorie Prime (2017) With nuance and an introspective eye, Almereyda creates a beautifully bleak, hypnagogic world in Marjorie Prime that allows its pensive themes to flourish.‐ Film Inquiry

No Score Yet Frank vs. God (2014) Frank Vs. God makes solid arguments for and against the effectiveness of religion and the existence of god, but, like reality, doesn't offer any life-changing answers.‐ Film Inquiry

100% Donnie Darko: 15th Anniversary (2017) Donnie Darko, the 1st cult classic of the 21st century, a masterclass in assiduous filmmaking, remains one of the most relevant, urgent and timely films of the last 50 years.‐ Film Inquiry

16% The Mummy (2017) The Mummy is a prime example of how a big studio can ruin a film by misdirecting its focus on spectacle over a cogent story, something that audiences have grown weary of.‐ Film Inquiry

85% Band Aid (2017) Beneath the comedy in Band Aid, which turns into wonderfully executed slapstick at times, there is an intelligent and sincere commentary about societal gender expectations. ‐ Film Inquiry

92% SCORE: A Film Music Documentary (2017) Schrader delves into film music by merely acting as a fly on the wall, letting the masterminds speak for themselves, creating a non-intrusive film with a pulsating heartbeat. ‐ Film Inquiry

No Score Yet Let Me Make You a Martyr (2016) By the end of Let Me Make You A Martyr, viewers will be antsy for the drawn-out story to finish so that they can leave this suffocating, vapid world. ‐ Film Inquiry

72% The Wizard of Lies (2017) As choppy and dragging as it may be at times, and although it doesn't offer any revelations, The Wizard Of Lies is an intimate and sobering look at family betrayal.‐ Film Inquiry

68% Take Me (2017) Take Me doesn't beg the audience to think or force it to endure visually horrific imagery. Instead, it's a rather fresh take on the classic battle of the sexes trope.‐ Film Inquiry

51% The Dinner (2017) The Dinner is a difficult film to watch, but it is worth seeing for Coogan's revelatory performance alone.‐ Film Inquiry

90% Hounds of Love (2017) Brace yourselves, for Hounds of Love is the most terrifying torture porn film since the genre's inception. ‐ Film Inquiry

No Score Yet Logan Noir (2017) In a sense, Logan Noir is Mangold's own love letter to the fans of his Wolverine installments. ‐ Film Inquiry

24% Table 19 (2017) Table 19 is affable and empathetic, never aspiring to be more than it is in scope or scale. ‐ Film Inquiry

58% Small Crimes (2017) The Blair brothers fail miserably at trying to give a heartbeat to Small Crimes. However, Coster-Waldau and the rest of the cast do their best with the source material they're given. ‐ Film Inquiry

92% Win It All (2017) Though Win It All plays like a series of vignettes, Swanberg has become both grounded and creatively expanded as a result of Johnson's repeated collaboration.‐ Film Inquiry

7/10 73% Landline (2017) Robespierre succeeds at making another candid, comedic portrayal of family dysfunction and difficult life transitions, this time from a multigenerational perspective.‐ PopMatters

5/10 67% Life (2017) Screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick... fall short in creating realistic dialogue, scenarios, and frankly do a lazy job of trying to zero in on themes they want to focus on... They fail to add something fresh to what I see is an Alien knockoff. ‐ PopMatters

8/10 42% Song to Song (2017) With an A-list cast set against the Austin music scene, Malick has finally found a palatable balance between his visual and narrative poeticism.‐ PopMatters
