1/5 42% 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 Nov 5, 2015
3/5 89% Fresh Dressed (2015) "Hardly revelatory, though about more than just street fashion. " ‐ Little White Lies
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

Posted Oct 8, 2015
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

2/5 75% 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

5/5 89% Aaaaaaaah! " Aaaaaaaah! is [Steve Oram's] debut feature film as writer and director, a transgressive situationist comedy which is also one of the great British films of the new millennium. Explaining why is not going to be easy. " ‐ Little White Lies
Posted Sep 2, 2015
5/5 92% L'Eclisse (1962) "An exhilarating slow dance of not-quite-colliding bodies. " ‐ Little White Lies
Posted Aug 28, 2015
