T-Meter Title | Year
100% Scales (Sayidat Al Bahr) (2019) The film is a great technical achievement, with stunning use of black & white photography that plays with the shadowy nature of the village and its shores, and the brightness of the day that feels cynical rather than promising. - Film Inquiry EDIT

90% El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie (2019) While it isn't a terribly exciting conclusion to a richly-textured saga, it's the little moments along the way that make El Camino a heartfelt final chapter in a great character's story. - Film Inquiry EDIT

100% Recorder: The Marion Stokes Project (2019) Not only is this an important documentary, but it is a prophetic one. It asks us to remember that the world may very well go on without us, and we need to help those that are yet to arrive. That is the legacy of Marion Stokes. - Film Inquiry EDIT

100% Leap of Faith (2019) This writer believes that the only thing more fascinating than a William Friedkin film is a William Friedkin story...and this is a great story. - Film Inquiry EDIT

60% The Antenna (Bina) (2019) It is Behram's eye, Engin Ozkaya's gothic photography, Ufuk Bildibay's surreal production design, Can Demirci's schizophrenic score and the angsty sound design that makes this atmospheric horror so fresh and inventive. - Film Inquiry EDIT

85% Color Out of Space (2020) With plenty of laughs, an abundance of unsettling terror, and a wonderful supporting cast of alpacas, Color out of Space is an effective and intriguing look into the lore and mythology of Lovecraft. - Film Inquiry EDIT

29% Iron Sky: The Coming Race (2019) The Coming Race doesn't have the love and affection of its predecessor, nor does it have a sense of discipline or focus, and unfortunately falls flat. - Film Inquiry EDIT

96% I Do Not Care If We Go Down in History as Barbarians (Îmi este indiferent daca în istorie vom intra ca barbari) (2019) It is a layered, masterful work that proves that artistic mediums carry tremendous weight, and that what audiences bring to them will determine exactly how much they will take away. - Film Inquiry EDIT

46% Ode to Joy (2019) Ode to Joy doesn't really work as either an efficient comedy or drama (or even a bit of both), with the familiar beats and tropes lacking in any real thought. - Film Inquiry EDIT

22% The Kitchen (2019) Even with a few decent set-pieces and exceptional acting from the ensemble, The Kitchen is not the adaptation we deserve. - Film Inquiry EDIT
