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

39% 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

96% 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

29% 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

74% 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

90% 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

86% 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

92% 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

88% 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

36% Wetlands (2017) There is little originality to be found in Wetlands, and despite a few solid performances, very little to otherwise entertain.‐ Film Inquiry

61% 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

No Score Yet Fat Camp (2017) Fat Camp has good intentions, but its execution doesn't always live up to them. It's a pleasant enough escape from the bombast of blockbusters currently monopolizing cinemas.‐ Film Inquiry

85% The Fencer (Miekkailija) (2017) If you want to be inspired without using your imagination, The Fencer is for you. If you're tired of the same old teacher-related tropes, you'll probably want to skip this one.‐ Film Inquiry

100% Birthright: A War Story (2017) The message is important, and Tamarkin delivers it beautifully, but it often feels like it's preaching to the choir.‐ Film Inquiry

97% Daughters of the Dust (1991) If you find yourself thirsty for more Lemonade this summer, find the time to take in a screening of Daughters of the Dust. The trip will open your eyes and your mind.‐ Film Inquiry

89% Maudie (2017) While Maud's story is powerful, it's the dysfunctional relationship at the center of Maudie - and the it's romanticized - that prevents the film from being truly enjoyable.‐ Film Inquiry

86% Paint It Black (2017) Paint It Black features the voices of three very talented women - Tamblyn, Shawkat, and McTeer - and is all the more powerful for it.‐ Film Inquiry

93% Stefan Zweig: Farewell to Europe (2017) Stefan Zweig: Farewell To Europe is a fine display of craftsmanship, but feels a bit too infatuated with its own beauty and intelligence to engage on the level to which it aspires.‐ Film Inquiry

40% Lady Bloodfight (2017) Lady Bloodfight is the cinematic equivalent of eating a giant plate of nachos washed down with a cheap beer. Not the highest quality, but you enjoy the experience regardless.‐ Film Inquiry

57% Rules Don't Apply (2016) If Rules Don't Apply had focused on just one of its two main storylines, it could have been solid. Instead, it's uneven, lurching between utterly charming and honestly boring.‐ Film Inquiry
