60% The Sounding (2020) I kept wishing that The Sounding had the courage of its convictions, to take a note from the playwright it admires so much and do something, anything, out of the ordinary, something risky and comic and daring. - Film Inquiry EDIT

93% Lapsis (2020) Commanded by nuanced performances and smartly written by Hutton, Lapsis is a tremendous, radicalizing sci-fi project that not only feeds you anger but offers solutions to its existential crises deep in the American wilderness. - Film Inquiry EDIT

90% Rose Plays Julie (2019) It's visceral and elegiac, a perfect slow-burner awash in the blood of old wounds reopened. - Film Inquiry EDIT

78% Jumbo (2020) The film has a funny premise, but there's real pathos beneath that conceit, coaxed out by Merlant's graceful performance and beautiful, measured direction from Zoé Wittock. - Film Inquiry EDIT

87% Detention (2019) The narrative of Detention is nearly nonexistent. And in the rare instances that the story took center stage, I had no idea what to make of it. - Film Inquiry EDIT

No Score Yet First Blush (2020) We should be satisfied with just the character interplay and drama between the sex, but the absence of these scenes weighs heavily on the story. Luckily, the cast absolutely sells it. - Film Inquiry EDIT

100% The Witness for the Prosecution (2016) The best of Phelps' adaptations is also the most somber and least showy. 2016's The Witness for the Prosecution, previously and famously adapted by Billy Wilder, mostly rides on the beleaguered affability of Toby Jones' solicitor protagonist - Film Inquiry EDIT

100% The Grand Bizarre (2018) You could show The Grand Bizarre to anyone, from any country on Earth, and the film would click. There are no barriers, linguistic or otherwise. - Film Inquiry EDIT

51% I Still Believe (2020) I Still Believe, isn't even well-made propaganda, unlikely to win any converts or even inspire filmgoers to either visit the website or buy the album plugged at the end. - Film Inquiry EDIT

90% The Trouble with Harry (1955) The film, a radical departure for the director, is one of his most forgotten, and it's also one of his best, a night-black portrait of small-town New England nonchalance and charm. - Film Inquiry EDIT

80% The Keeping Hours (2016) Those who take a chance will be treated to a pensive, slow-moving story told almost as a play might be - mostly in one location, around three actors, forgoing style and punch to instead mine the depths of the human soul. - Film Inquiry EDIT

63% Swing Kids (2018) The film does for the Korean War what Life Is Beautiful did for the Holocaust - it injects verve and fun into very grim subject matter. - Film Inquiry EDIT
