Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
95% Sorry to Bother You (2018) Not every wild storytelling gamble works and some of the metaphor comes across as heavy-handed as a Trump-Macron handshake. Nonetheless, Riley deserves immense plaudits for taking such risks and making such a powerful statement in his feature film debut.‐ Film Inquiry

88% Boom for Real: The Late Teenage Years of Jean-Michel Basquiat (2018) Boom for Real benefits from Driver's intimate familiarity with its subject: both Basquiat himself and the downtown New York in which he thrived. ‐ Film Inquiry

76% The Workers Cup (2018) I cannot fathom how one could see how migrant workers are being treated and still feel fine with watching the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The Workers Cup ensures that you'll never glory in watching your team lift the trophy in the same way ever again.‐ Film Inquiry

85% American Animals (2018) The stylistic gambles that Layton takes pay off in that they add depth to what is a shallow story about young American ennui. However, the movie's artistic merits are not enough to make the men at the center of the story worth caring about.‐ Film Inquiry

92% Nossa Chape (2018) Nossa Chape is a beautiful elegy to the departed and an ode to the strength of those who survived.‐ Film Inquiry

100% The Two of Us (Le vieil homme et l'enfant) (1967) Refreshingly free of bloodshed and bombast, Berri's film proves that you don't need to depict the visceral horrors of World War II onscreen to drive home the lasting impact it had on everyday people.‐ Film Inquiry

38% Mary Shelley (2018) As the first female filmmaker in her native land of Saudi Arabia, and a controversial figure in her own right, it is clear that Al-Mansour was born to bring Mary Shelley's story to the big screen.‐ Film Inquiry

76% Lu Over the Wall (Yoake tsugeru Rû no uta) (2018) Even if you've lost track of what is going on, Yuasa feeds you enough eye candy to ensure you will remain satisfied.‐ Film Inquiry

100% Nico, 1988 (2018) Nico, 1988 shows us how extraordinary the biopic can be when it is freed from unnecessary restrictions to embrace the idiosyncrasies of its subject.‐ Film Inquiry

27% Mapplethorpe (2018) There is a spark missing from Mapplethorpe that one is better off seeking out in one of his photographs.‐ Film Inquiry

96% Studio 54 (2018) Watching the film will make you nostalgic for an era of utter freedom that we seem to have lost in the forty years that have passed since.‐ Film Inquiry

No Score Yet Kaiser: The Greatest Footballer Never to Play Football (2017) Certain scenes seem orchestrated just to elicit audience sympathy for Kaiser and they ring false. But by showing us how the myth is so much more enjoyable than the man, Myles helps us understand why the man created the myth in the first place.‐ Film Inquiry

No Score Yet Tanzania Transit (2017) Tanzania Transit opens audience eyes to a world that most of us will have rarely seen, and introduces us to characters whose stories are too infrequently told. ‐ Film Inquiry

80% State Like Sleep (2018) Danluck has great style as a filmmaker that harkens back to the best noir thrillers of yesteryear; she just needs to write a script with the substance to match.‐ Film Inquiry

100% All About Nina (2018) The film makes your stomach hurt from laughter when it isn't making your heart hurt from anger - a combination that might sound unpleasant but is really a mark of the highest praise.‐ Film Inquiry

67% The Party's Just Beginning (2018) Bold visual, editing, and musical choices show that despite this being her debut feature, Gillan is a natural storyteller confident in her own style and vision‐ Film Inquiry

86% Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami (2018) If you want a straightforward biopic outlining Jones's life from birth until now, you'll be disappointed in Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami. But if you're a fan of Jones, why would you want that anyway?‐ Film Inquiry

100% Daughter of the Nile (Ni luo he nu er) (1987) The film, a gorgeous exploration of life on the margins of Taipei society, doesn't have much in the way of a propulsive plot, but it makes up for that with rich atmosphere and characters that feel so real, you'll swear you just saw them walk by.‐ Film Inquiry

86% Thoroughbreds (2018) Watching Thoroughbreds, one is fully aware of the debt it owes to the similar films that came before it. But that doesn't make it any less enjoyable to watch. Female friendship has never looked so deliciously dangerous.‐ Film Inquiry

40% A Wrinkle in Time (2018) A Wrinkle in Time has many touching and beautiful moments, in large part due to the incredible and relatable performance of its young star. However, the heavy-handed direction and sugary-sweet story may wear on adults used to more nuanced fare.‐ Film Inquiry

15% Mute (2018) It's a particularly disappointing misfire from the man that gave us the low-key masterpiece of Moon, and yet another nail in the coffin of Netflix as a destination for quality original films.‐ Film Inquiry

97% Black Panther (2018) The majority of moviegoers want to see films led by strong, intelligent characters that are more diverse than just heterosexual white men, especially when they are as thoughtfully and beautifully made as this one.‐ Film Inquiry

100% Rebels on Pointe (2017) If viewed out of the context of recent events, Rebels on Pointe is an enjoyable and inspirational look inside the world of a unique group of artists that will make you eager to take in one of their performances in real life as soon as possible.‐ Film Inquiry

28% Proud Mary (2018) Proud Mary would be nothing special if it did not star Taraji P. Henson. But it does, and as a result it stands out like a beam of sunshine piercing the dull grey murk that is January at the movies. It is not brilliant, but it is definitely a lot of fun.‐ Film Inquiry

20% Paradise (2013) Heavy-handed, predictable and often offensive in its treatment of certain characters, Paradise is a major misfire for Cody.‐ Film Inquiry

No Score Yet Almost Paris (2018) Despite an admittedly heartwarming message about not putting a price tag on ways to make others happy, there is very little to take away from Almost Paris. You've seen this one before, albeit better.‐ Film Inquiry

82% Molly's Game (2018) Molly's Game is a prime showcase for one of Hollywood's most versatile actresses, but the film as a whole doesn't live up to Chastain's fiery performance. A lot is said, but very little sticks with you after the end credits roll.‐ Film Inquiry

77% In the Fade (Aus dem Nichts) (2017) Diane Kruger carries In the Fade on her leather-clad shoulders and ensures that you'll walk away from the film feeling absolutely rattled.‐ Film Inquiry

No Score Yet Chameleon (Camaleón) (2016) Rather than make a statement about class warfare or people living their lives as imposters, Chameleon instead makes a powerful statement as to why we need more women making films about women.‐ Film Inquiry

89% I, Tonya (2018) I, Tonya takes a sympathetic look at Tonya Harding's life without glossing over the unpleasant parts of her personality; it doesn't try to excuse her bad behavior, but it does try to understand what led her to behave that way in the first place.‐ Film Inquiry

93% Thelma (2017) Thelma's depiction of the emotional throes one goes through while growing up rings just as true as Greta Gerwig's Lady Bird, even with (or perhaps because of) all the nightmarish trappings.‐ Film Inquiry

96% Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story (2017) Knowing how much else Lamarr had to offer, and how little the world cared about it, saddened and infuriated me.‐ Film Inquiry

99% Lady Bird (2017) As she does as an actress, Gerwig the director articulates every delicate, emotional nuance. For a debut feature film, it is a triumph.‐ Film Inquiry

86% Kamikaze '89 (1983) The combination of dazzlingly detailed production design and Fassbinder's final performance make it hard to tears one's eyes away from the spectacle that is Kamikaze 1989.‐ Film Inquiry

83% The Divine Order (Die göttliche Ordnung) (2017) The Divine Order is a fierce, fiery film that should be seen by anyone who feels helpless in the ongoing struggle for equality.‐ Film Inquiry

87% Professor Marston & The Wonder Women (2017) [An] entertaining and empowering ode to the freedom that comes with living an unconventional life.‐ Film Inquiry

81% Tom of Finland (2017) To present Tom Of Finland's life in the format of a prestige biopic feels like a poor fit, to say the least.‐ Film Inquiry
Read More | Posted Oct 26, 2017
89% Our Souls at Night (2017) Our Souls At Night is an important reminder that there are still plenty of stories worth telling in the twilight years of one's life.‐ Film Inquiry

85% Battle of the Sexes (2017) The most powerful - and also the most depressing - thing about Battle of the Sexes is how relevant King's struggle still is today.‐ Film Inquiry

89% Tokyo Idols (2017) Tokyo Idols offers a complex look at a cultural phenomenon that could just as easily have been glossed over as another example of Japanese oddness.‐ Film Inquiry

93% Logan Lucky (2017) While Logan Lucky falls strictly into the category of popcorn entertainment, that doesn't make it any less worthy of praise.‐ Film Inquiry

87% Wind River (2017) Wind River is equal parts beautiful and horrifying, hopeful and heartbreaking.‐ Film Inquiry

59% What Happened to Monday (2017) Despite its various weaknesses, What Happened to Monday is still weird, wacky fun, a B-movie with a capital B.‐ Film Inquiry

44% Bushwick (2017) Bushwick should have been an exciting and timely response to our nation's difficulties. Instead, it is just plain boring.‐ Film Inquiry

61% 6 Days (2017) 6 Days is a mostly well-made film based on true events, but its similarity to our current political climate makes it an uncomfortable watch.‐ Film Inquiry

74% Landline (2017) Robespierre and Slate prove with Landline that they are a match made in movie-making heaven, two women who understand that female characters can do unlikable things while still earning our empathy.‐ Film Inquiry

No Score Yet Fighting Belle (2017) Perhaps my expectations of Fighting Belle were misguided, or at the very least too high. Either way, I was disappointed.‐ Film Inquiry
