54% The Dead Don't Die (2019) The Dead Don't Die is a film that doesn't know what it wants to be. While clearly wanting to make its mark in the zombie genre, there are questions of whether the initial feel of the film was lost in a sea of influences. - Film Inquiry EDIT

No Score Yet Low Tide (2019) Low Tide is not a bad film, and I would not sway anyone from seeing it. It just needed something more. I can wholeheartedly recommend it on the performances alone, a sampling of the up-and-coming talent. - Film Inquiry EDIT

75% Dreamland (2019) There was a wasted potential in the slow burn of these characters and their journey, there lacked a depth in each of these characters, most with basic or lacking a drive strong enough to support many of their actions. - Film Inquiry EDIT

86% Lil' Buck: Real Swan (2019) The problem this presents is the attention span the filmmaker is demanding from its audience. While the subject matter is enlightening, fascinating and inspiring, here is where Lil' Buck runs the risk of losing its viewers. - Film Inquiry EDIT

78% A Woman's Work: The NFL's Cheerleader Problem (2019) While timely and effective, A Woman's Work did not have the confidence in its subject matter to carry from start to finish, adding information and other issues that distract from the primary one. - Film Inquiry EDIT

98% Won't You Be My Neighbor? (2018) You don't need to be a fan of the show or even have watched it. Won't You Be My Neighbor? will perfectly captivate and engage viewers, no matter their knowledge on the subject. This is the must-see documentary of the year. - Film Inquiry EDIT
