89% Zola (2020) Though the narrative loses its momentum towards the end of the film, with a talented and diverse cast, Zola still ingratiates us with the performances that we need to feel fulfilled by the end.‐ Film Inquiry

70% Beast Beast (2020) The way in which gun violence is used to propel the story and characters forward among all of this feels far too abrupt that the story and characters feel short changed in the end.‐ Film Inquiry

85% Save Yourselves! (2020) It's a whacky, dorky, and delightful apocalypse comedy that charms its way up into space. Save Yourselves! is the comedy of the millennial generation.‐ Film Inquiry

80% The Mountains Are a Dream That Call to Me (2020) Despite the large void in its narrative, The Mountains Are a Dream that Call to Me is clearly an ambitious production, and Cheung-Lau impressively and gorgeously brings his vision to life.‐ Film Inquiry

56% Blast Beat (2020) It fails to progress towards the maturation that it requires. Simply put, Blast Beat unfortunately fails to find the right beat.‐ Film Inquiry

96% The Disappearance of My Mother (2019) It's filled with melancholy, delicacy, and captivation. There is a fine layer of philosophical and genuine intricacy that makes The Disappearance of My Mother a well-crafted tale of vulnerability. ‐ Film Inquiry

95% Marriage Story (2019) Marriage Story is a promising film that has carved out powerful performances from the cast, but Baumbach's strategies in drawing out his character arcs are uneven, insufficient, and disappointing. ‐ Film Inquiry

89% The Third Wife (2019) In her impressive feature film debut, writer and director Ash Mayfair doesn't parade us with profound tragedy and hardship; rather, she takes difficult subject matters and embellishes them with tranquil shots and dialogue.‐ Film Inquiry

100% Okko's Inn (2019) There aren't many complexities in Okko's Inn, and it certainly doesn't need them. With its vivacious characters and pace, the story bounces through various chapters of Okko's new journey.‐ Film Inquiry

95% Burning (Beoning) (2018) Lee is patient with the story. He illustrates the rather grim reality of how circumstance and people can define you and shape your perception of the world for better or worse. ‐ Film Inquiry
