5% Jacob's Ladder (2019) There is no love or admiration of this remake in the writing or material provided. Writers Jeff Buhler and Sarah Thorpe showcase no real interest in evolving the content nor adapting anything to the present day, even if it is set within it. - Film Inquiry EDIT

69% Gwen (2019) William McGregor's film is a terrific embodiment of moral terror. The film plays with its audience's expectations in how it displays and executes genre convention with wonderfully coy and captivating results. - Film Inquiry EDIT

92% Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story By Martin Scorsese (2019) It's a heavy weight to carry and without any form of value being provoked, it sadly falls into the category of a vanity project rather than a goldmine of immersive character. - Film Inquiry EDIT

No Score Yet Blanco en Blanco (2019) Blanco en Blanco's aesthetic and artistic quality only leads to more disappointment; there was so much promise here, so much talent waiting to be explored, but it is let down by the lack of restraint and direction. - Film Inquiry EDIT

44% Guest of Honour (2019) Guest of Honour ultimately feels like a missed opportunity for both an intriguing character study on grief, and a compelling drama. - Film Inquiry EDIT

81% The Truth (La vérité) (2019) The Truth often struggles to stay relevant throughout the plot. It is a wasted opportunity that Koreeda foils in his master plan in creating this majestic emotionally involved feature. - Film Inquiry EDIT

67% Pelican Blood (Pelikanblut) (2019) It fits the blueprints of the latest successful films in horror with its balance of dramatically written material and an underbelly of deliciously spooky horror. - Film Inquiry EDIT

71% The King (2019) Fabulous performances from Edgerton and Chalamet coupled with terrific cinematography cement this as a strong effort. - Film Inquiry EDIT

95% About Endlessness (Om det oändliga) (2019) It can be painfully slow at times, but it is superbly captured with a stunning eye from Gergely Pálos, crafted with a truly delightful aesthetic. - Film Inquiry EDIT

33% Adults in the Room (2019) Adults In The Room is a hard sell. For what is essentially two and a half hours of constant political farce, granted while making a strong impression, it does not succeed in the level of intrigue with a compelling fully inclusive narrative for all. - Film Inquiry EDIT

No Score Yet Revenir (2019) Revenir is a terrific boiling pot of emotional intensity. Terrific editing and a beautiful turn of cinematography add a stunning bliss to this emotionally complex and heartbreaking drama. - Film Inquiry EDIT

44% The Laundromat (2019) The overindulgence in wanting to explain and highlight as much material as possible ultimately drowns this drama in the excessive narrative with its limited running time. - Film Inquiry EDIT

68% Joker (2019) Phoenix and Phillips together have crafted something extraordinarily special. An exhilarating character study on the parameters of loneliness with a chilling assessment of the choking and deliberating effects of a morbid society. - Film Inquiry EDIT

99% Marriage Story (2019) Baumbach once again crafts a tender and ludicrously compelling film that insights an internal riot of mixed emotions. - Film Inquiry EDIT

84% Ad Astra (2019) Ad Astra is no doubt visually stimulating in composition and framing, but ultimately James Gray's film is a meandering lifeless existential entity that overly emphasises on simplicity. - Film Inquiry EDIT

85% Pavarotti (2019) Pavarotti is a delight. At times hard to watch, but ever so entertaining and explosive exploring one of the most captivating and astonishing artists of the 20th century and showcasing every nook and cranny it can to fully realise such an iconic performer. - Film Inquiry EDIT

100% Days of the Whale (2019) Days of the Whale is a ballsy and strong independent vision for a filmmaker that is just starting out in her craft, and if it is any sign that these are just a few elements in store, Arroyave is most definitely one to watch. - Film Inquiry EDIT

99% Apollo 11 (2019) It has a melding of perfect pace ranging from frantic, stoic to poignant resonation in an instance. It is exemplary and transcends the narrative into something so engulfing and mesmerizing it is hard to articulate a clear and resounding response. - Film Inquiry EDIT

79% Everybody Knows (Todos lo saben) (2019) It undoubtedly manages to grasp your attention with an outstanding central performance by Penélope Cruz (one of her best to date) cementing this as a hard hitting, harrowing and compelling picture. - Film Inquiry EDIT

100% Cat Sticks (2019) The ying-yang energy of both poignant heart and strident bitterness in Cat Sticks is strikingly effective. The flip-flop approach, much like the disease of addiction itself is conveyed in a discerning wise and endearing manner. - Film Inquiry EDIT

No Score Yet Godzilla: The Planet Eater (2019) Godzilla: The Planet Eater is the finale of an unsatisfying and highly flawed trilogy. - Film Inquiry EDIT
