81% The Day Shall Come (2019) I would like to nominate Chris Morris's The Day Shall Come to the overcrowded ranks of the bad, lazy satire. - Film Inquiry EDIT

83% Her Smell (2019) Her Smell never overstays its welcome, thanks to a stellar ensemble, Ross's solid script, and Moss's powerhouse performance. - Film Inquiry EDIT

56% The Beach Bum (2019) The Beach Bum is a fantasy par excellence about life without consequences; a thought exercise in what it would look like if someone truly lived without a care in the world. - Film Inquiry EDIT

93% Us (2019) Two films in, it's abundantly clear that Peele is developing a new genre altogether, one that is fundamentally horror, and yet is also unafraid of being thoroughly comedic. - Film Inquiry EDIT

81% Mid90s (2018) At its heart, Mid90s deals with the euphoria of being young and feeling like you've finally found a group in which you can belong. In the same vein, it is also about that high's inevitable fallout. - Film Inquiry EDIT

94% CAM (2018) We need more stories that shed honest light on sex work while humanizing the people who do it and, on that end, Cam gets the job done. - Film Inquiry EDIT

80% Apostle (2018) If his earlier work proved his mastery of action filmmaking, Apostle proves Gareth Evans might have the chops to tackle any genre he pleases. - Film Inquiry EDIT

100% Dachra (2018) From its terrifying cold opening to its grisly ending, Dachra announces the arrival of a bold new voice in international genre cinema, one that refuses the constraints and expectations that are often placed on films from the region. - Film Inquiry EDIT

29% Between Worlds (2018) Between Worlds may not be the finest receptacle for Cage's insanity, but it does feature a sex scene in which he reads, mid-intercourse, from an erotic book titled Memories by Nicolas Cage. Make of that what you will. - Film Inquiry EDIT

66% Suspiria (2018) Though it may seem odd, at face value, to think of Susie and Elio's stories as peers in the same director's oeuvre, Guadagnino's commitment to interrogating and capturing desire, its ecstasy, its destruction, bridges nearly all his work. - Film Inquiry EDIT

81% Knife + Heart (Un couteau dans le coeur) (2019) By focusing on relationships, toxic and otherwise, within a queer community, Gonzalez imbues his characters with an agency and individuality that are shamefully rare in mainstream queer cinema. - Film Inquiry EDIT

59% You Might Be the Killer (2018) The film's methodical deconstruction of slasher tropes quickly proves mechanical. - Film Inquiry EDIT

100% One Cut of the Dead (Kamera o tomeru na!) (2019) Ueda's bending of tone and style eludes conventional genre classifications, but all the elements mesh fantastically and coherently together. - Film Inquiry EDIT

82% Pope Francis - A Man of His Word (2018) It is foolishly unrealistic to expect Wenders to have made any kind of critical or challenging work. The issue is Wenders' inexplicable lack of interest in enriching or expanding the narrative we have come to learn of Pope Francis so far. - Film Inquiry EDIT

95% 1985 (2018) Relying heavily on the personal over the historical, Tan has crafted a stunning love letter in memoriam for the queer big brothers who could not be there to tell him what Adrian tells Andrew. - Film Inquiry EDIT

62% Most Likely to Murder (2018) Most Likely to Murder may not reinvent the wheel of holiday films, but its subversion of the genre, especially its willingness to fully indict and satirize its own protagonist, gives us ample reason to invest interest in the future of Gregor's filmography - Film Inquiry EDIT

86% 6 Balloons (2018) It's always refreshing to see a take on a social epidemic that doesn't wallow in clichés of suffering, but rather examines the humanity underneath it all. - Film Inquiry EDIT

93% Sorry to Bother You (2018) I have absolutely never seen anything like Sorry to Bother You before. You have to see this movie. - Film Inquiry EDIT

53% Roman J. Israel, Esq. (2017) It may fail to live up to the excellence of Gilroy's debut, but the film still manages to deliver a poignant look at the pitfalls, and promise, of the American legal system. - Film Inquiry EDIT

97% Coco (2017) Charming, stunning, and heart-wrenching, Coco has swiftly joined the ranks of Pixar's finest. - Film Inquiry EDIT

67% Wonderstruck (2017) A weakly structured plot and unfocused motifs bog Wonderstruck down from what could have been a striking exploration of childhood and the joys of discovery that come with it. - Film Inquiry EDIT

85% Blade of the Immortal (Mugen no jûnin) (2017) A spectacular refinement of the prolific auteur's finest strengths. - Film Inquiry EDIT

27% Suburbicon (2017) Suburbicon is a solid, darkly comic thriller that certainly could have delivered more on its political and historical commentary, but manages to do enough to warrant you checking out. - Film Inquiry EDIT

61% Te Ata (2017) By honoring the story and legacy of Te Ata, the film asserts its own, justifiable, importance in a time of continued Native American erasure from art and history. - Film Inquiry EDIT

83% Monogamish (2017) An unexpectedly robust, eye-opening take on the history, as well as the contemporary state of marriage, love, and sexuality. - Film Inquiry EDIT

55% The Lego Ninjago Movie (2017) While fun and heartwarming, The Lego Ninjago Movie's predictability, along with the problematic nature of its setting, hold it back from being as fresh as its predecessors. - Film Inquiry EDIT

74% Beatriz at Dinner (2017) It's rare that a film will come along and synthesize the era we live in so succinctly. - Film Inquiry EDIT
