89% John McEnroe: In the Realm of Perfection (L'empire de la perfection) (2018) This is hardly a documentary, at least in the accepted sense of the word. Talking heads have been excised and the instructional films of former Roland Garros documentarian, Gil de Kermadec, have been given a near arthouse treatment.‐ Film Inquiry

81% Chappaquiddick (2018) To watch Chappaquiddick and then ponder the life of Ted Kennedy in such a manner undoubtedly must lead to introspection. Where do our own lives fall along this gradient? Are we any worse than he is or can we claim to be any better? ‐ Film Inquiry

96% To All the Boys I've Loved Before (2018) There is nothing mean-spirited or pernicious in its content. Just a thoroughly sweet, at times hysterically funny narrative that manages a certain amount of endearing authenticity.‐ Film Inquiry

96% After the Storm (Umi yori mo mada fukaku) (2017) Here there is no doubt characters have changed, but externally their behavior seems all but the same. The development is incremental and internalized.‐ Film Inquiry

86% Un Conte de Noël (A Christmas Tale) (2008) If you are intrigued by the interpersonal relationships and entanglements of a family - maybe a lot like yours and mine - this film is a fascinating exposé that might well prompt some seasonal self-reflection.‐ Film Inquiry

100% Body and Soul (1947) Body and Soul is a film not simply with gritty boxing scenes but also a fascinating character analysis indicative of the human condition.‐ Film Inquiry

98% A Hard Day's Night (1964) A Hard Day's Night perfectly encapsulates the rash of Beatlemania that was exploding onto the world stage and making its way across the pond to America.‐ Film Inquiry

97% Pickpocket (1959) Pickpocket is an intricately staged, truly intimate character study from the imitable Robert Bresson instantly solidifying itself as one of his greatest works. ‐ Film Inquiry

100% The Fallen Idol (1949) The Fallen Idol is a fascinating film for how it manages to develop inner turmoil and for its earnest interest in the perspective of a child. ‐ Film Inquiry

97% Limelight (1952) With Limelight, for one last, brief moment, it's like old times even as the new age begins and Chaplin relinquishes his crown to the younger generations. ‐ Film Inquiry

90% That Man from Rio (1964) That Man In Rio has faults but that does not mean for a moment we cannot still get something out of it, even if it's, at the very least, some unadulterated thrills.‐ Film Inquiry
