Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
56% Caniba (2018) Caniba isn't the mammoth achievement of Leviathan, but the filmmakers have cobbled together another disturbing film about human loneliness.‐ Film Inquiry

57% Unfriended: Dark Web (2018) Instead of keeping it at bay because cell phone and internet use eradicates many of the core tropes of the genre, this franchise taps into modern communication and creates a new cinematic language for the slasher sub-genre.‐ Film Inquiry

78% The Day After (Geu-hu) (2018) Hong's priorities are different from other filmmakers; he eschews an adherence to film language decorum in favor of interrogating emotions and ideas that are important to him, in ways that make sense to him.‐ Film Inquiry

85% Disobedience (2018) After Disobedience, I was left with the same uneasy feeling his last film evoked - this isn't Lelio's story to tell. If he understands the nuances of other cultures through exhaustive research, he isn't able to translate it on screen persuasively.‐ Film Inquiry

96% Zama (2018) I wouldn't be surprised to see Zama canonized as one of the more remarkable artistic achievements of this decade. It's certainly a standout of 2018.‐ Film Inquiry

95% Western (2018) We get the sense that the tension between the locals and someone like Meinhard can never fully be resolved.‐ Film Inquiry

90% Claire's Camera (La caméra de Claire) (2018) Watching Claire's Camera feels like watching a film being made right in front of you.‐ Film Inquiry

93% First Reformed (2018) A culmination of Schrader's entire career.‐ Film Inquiry

99% Eighth Grade (2018) Eighth Grade is an insular film, teasing out larger observations about the confluence of awkward and unfamiliar territory.‐ Film Inquiry

89% American Animals (2018) American Animals is like watching the project of the most technically talented film student, but who has absolutely nothing to say. ‐ Film Inquiry

65% They Remain (2018) The final sequence is not only surprisingly satisfying, but offers us an uncomfortable moment that resembles closure, while avoiding an overly clean denouement. Unfortunately, the effectiveness of this ending highlights the weakness that preceded it.‐ Film Inquiry

89% Pass Over (2018) Overall, Pass Over is successful despite often being way too on-the-nose about specific manifestations of American problems in 2017.‐ Film Inquiry

23% The 15:17 to Paris (2018) If you're open to the power of Eastwood's formalistic radicalism, it will reveal itself as an admirable piece of hero storytelling - one that, as its tagline suggests, focuses on the real heroes.‐ Film Inquiry

100% Mr. Roosevelt (2017) There is an articulation of existential conflict here that isn't typical of the films it may look like from a distance.‐ Film Inquiry

89% Joan Didion: The Center Will Not Hold (2017) Trying to cover Joan Didion the person, the writer and the wife and mother in 95 minutes couldn't be anything but incomplete and broad.‐ Film Inquiry

98% Dina (2017) Dina is a welcome feature to the autism canon that takes an observational approach, avoiding a forced narrative about the diagnosis.‐ Film Inquiry

87% Only the Brave (2017) Only The Brave squanders any potential to say something profound by getting caught up in regurgitating a flaccid story about heroism that we've been spoonfed since Sept. 11, 2001.‐ Film Inquiry

17% Friend Request (2017) Friend Request lets its loaded topics lay flaccid, working against itself.‐ Film Inquiry
