The Inspection (out May 4) is a semi-autobiographical drama from writer-director Elegance Bratton. It follows a young gay man who joins the Marines to help placate his homophobic mother. It's clearly a very personal story to Bratton but, aside from a few good scenes where key folk open up, I struggled in deeply understanding these characters. Feels like we only scratch the surface. Grade: B-.
