100% Inmate #1: The Rise of Danny Trejo (2019) It's not without its flaws, but when it focuses on Danny Trejo's incredible story and allows him to tell it his way, Inmate #1 is a powerful and poignant story with a fairy tale ending that will have you believing miracles really do come true.‐ Film Inquiry

83% Sometimes Always Never (Triple Word Score) (2020) Featuring a strong performance by Bill Nighy and not a whole lot else, there isn't much to make this film stand out.‐ Film Inquiry

40% Blood and Money (2020) It is so content to occupy the safe middle ground without ever doing anything of interest such as exploring its characters or its location, that it feels like an heartless exercise in mimicking better films just for the sake of it. ‐ Film Inquiry

98% Circus of Books (2020) Although it doesn't always hit the mark, and there are certain aspects you wish Mason had delved further into, ultimately Circus of Books packs so much heart and warmth that only the coldest of souls would fail to be moved by it come the end credits.‐ Film Inquiry

67% The Flood (2019) Although it starts with a strong premise and seems to promise an unvarnished view of a topical, incendiary issue, ultimately The Flood's refusal to pick a side robs it of any real purpose. ‐ Film Inquiry

No Score Yet Finding Yingying (2020) Filmed with a raw, visceral quality, it captures a grieving family in their most vulnerable moments, and shines a light on the culture clash between two vastly different countries in ways that can be uncomfortable to see.‐ Film Inquiry

52% Lost Transmissions (2020) Simon Pegg and Juno Temple both bring typically great performances to their characters, but unfortunately, there isn't much here to connect to. ‐ Film Inquiry

85% Les Misérables (2020) Les Misérables isn't without its faults, but there can be no denying that Ly's debut feature is a breathless, exhilarating ride which will have you thinking about it long after the credits roll.‐ Film Inquiry

100% James VS His Future Self (2020) Jeremy LaLonde's movie is a fun blend of sci-fi, comedy, and critique of the modern relationship to identity; it doesn't always stick the landing in an attempt to balance these disparate elements but is certainly worth looking out for.‐ Film Inquiry

60% The Translators (2019) Yet it never feels as though this is what Les Traducteursis going for: it is a purely enjoyable, visceral thrill of a movie that doesn't reward deeper analysis and might require just a little more suspension of disbelief than you might usually give. ‐ Film Inquiry

71% Vivarium (2020) Unfortunately, though, Vivarium is a little one-note - finding itself with not entirely much to say beyond that initial observation.‐ Film Inquiry

48% Greed (2020) Movies like Greed - though entertaining and enjoyable in their own right - will likely fade into the ether, having not said very much at all.‐ Film Inquiry

79% Proxima (2019) With beautiful direction and cinematography, a haunting score, and excellent acting by Eva Green in particular, Proxima is a solemn, slow meditation on motherhood and the bond between mother and daughter.‐ Film Inquiry

31% King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is exactly what you'd expect from Guy Ritchie: a frenetically paced affair peppered with humour and plenty of laddish behaviour. ‐ Film Inquiry
