5/5 100% Roma, città aperta (Open City) (1946) " Roberto Rossellini's benchmark 1945 work of abrasive political realism presents a crumbling Rome that's been ravaged by war." — Little White Lies
Posted Mar 6, 2014
3/5 85% We Are What We Are (2013) " This social-realist take on the cannibal sub-genre makes for a surprising lyrical and quietly profound piece of filmmaking." — Little White Lies
Posted Feb 27, 2014
3/5 46% The Book Thief (2013) " A frank and adventurous portrayal of love in the margins." — Little White Lies
Posted Feb 27, 2014
99% Lawrence of Arabia (1962) " Of all miracles readily apparent on screen, perhaps the greatest is that the film even got made in the first place." — Little White Lies
Posted Feb 26, 2014

Posted Jan 30, 2014
2/5 64% August: Osage County (2013) " This star-studded shout-off generates none of the heat and intensity of Tracy Letts' stage play." — Little White Lies
Posted Jan 23, 2014
3/5 96% Muscle Shoals (2013) " Exceptional music, unexceptional documentary on the swampy sounds of the famous Tennessee backing band." — Little White Lies
Posted Oct 24, 2013
1/5 13% R.I.P.D. (2013) " So generic a cut-and-paste job is the film's every aesthetic cue, it's surprising to even find a director's name surface in the closing credits." — Little White Lies
Posted Sep 19, 2013
3/5 88% Dial M for Murder (1954) " Second tier Hitch perhaps, but no less enjoyable for it, and still a marvel of cinematic technique." — Little White Lies
Posted Jul 25, 2013
3/5 48% Cleopatra (1963) " Melodramatic, and camp as Christmas, but nothing like the disaster its reputation suggests." — Little White Lies
Posted Jul 11, 2013
1/5 21% The Seasoning House (2013) " If only the dialogue and camera work were as good as the make-up effects." — Little White Lies
Posted Jun 20, 2013
1/5 70% The Croods (2013) " Oh crud..." — Little White Lies
Posted Mar 21, 2013
4/5 83% Babeldom " Invigorating, challenging and extremely provocative. And extremely articulate to boot!" — Little White Lies
Posted Mar 7, 2013
5/5 100% Gangs of Wasseypur " A star is born in Anurag Kashyap. Blistering, audacious and if anything... just too darn short." — Little White Lies
Posted Feb 21, 2013

Posted Feb 21, 2013

Posted Dec 26, 2012

Posted Nov 22, 2012
4/5 71% Husbands (1970) " Husbands may not be structurally perfect, but it's an unsentimental dissection of ego, fear and masculinity nonetheless." — Little White Lies
Posted Sep 27, 2012

Posted Aug 30, 2012

Posted Jul 5, 2012

Posted May 3, 2012

Posted May 3, 2012

Posted Mar 29, 2012
5/5 100% Laura (2005) " Not only one of Preminger's greatest, but one of the great noirs." — Little White Lies
Posted Feb 23, 2012
1/5 29% The Vow (2012) " Duff beyond words, with some appealing performances wasted." — Little White Lies
