Posted Feb 12, 2016
1/5 36% The Green Inferno (2015) "es, Roth's film has its expected moments of high transgression, but you can never get away from the fact that all these references have been attached to the most hackneyed teen slasher narrative imaginable. " ‐ Little White Lies
Posted Feb 12, 2016
3/5 92% The Survivalist "As a calling card movie, it's mightily impressive; dramatically lean, gripping where it needs to be, and a story told with satisfying economy. " ‐ Little White Lies

Posted Feb 6, 2016
2/5 96% Rams (Hrútar) (2016) "Though it's fairly obvious how the film is going to play out (and, sadly, it plays out exactly as expected), Rams spends far too long dawdling when it comes to the matter of settling on its tone. " ‐ Little White Lies

Posted Jan 29, 2016
1/5 54% 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi (2016) "It's all so hateful. Hates women. Hates talking. Hates tact. Loves guns. " ‐ Little White Lies
Posted Jan 26, 2016
100% Love & Friendship (2016) "With his ebullient and scaldingly droll latest - a superlative screwball adaptation of Jane Austen's novella 'Lady Susan' - Stillman may have finally located an ensemble of characters who exist in their own time. " ‐ Little White Lies
Posted Jan 24, 2016
3/5 33% Our Brand is Crisis (2015) "Too light, too silly. " ‐ Little White Lies

3/5 88% The Big Short (2015) "Lots of pleasant bluster, but spreads itself a little too thin. " ‐ Little White Lies
Posted Jan 19, 2016
5/5 96% Room (2015) "Room ... is not a thriller, but a moving feminist tract which explores questions of what it means to be a mother, what it means to give love, and what it means to receive it. " ‐ Little White Lies
Posted Jan 13, 2016

1/5 33% Jane Got a Gun (2016) "Jane Got a Gun manages to tell a modest - you might say highly inconsequential - yarn that's not even lightly spiced with ideas, circumspection, interesting characters or basic logic. It's a film that just... happens. " ‐ Little White Lies

Posted Dec 16, 2015

Posted Oct 30, 2015
2/5 29% Under Milk Wood "It all feels very much like an act of pure literary homage rather than giving any clue as to what the piece has to say about the here and the now. Plus, there's just no drama to it. " ‐ Little White Lies

3/5 91% Beasts of No Nation (2015) "From production design to performances and choreography, Beasts of No Nation is a paragon of grim vibrancy. But where it brims over superficial drama, an original observation - something really scary - seldom finds its way to the screen. " ‐ Little White Lies

Posted Oct 1, 2015
2/5 71% Fidelio, Alice's Journey (2015) "This sensible, sensual and slow burning romance is like an Emmanuaelle stripped of all its lurid passion, leaving little but cold intellectualising about desire, sex and the nature of long-term coupling. " ‐ Little White Lies
