3/5 85% Diego Maradona (2019) Hero, villain, liar, cheat, champion, scoundrel: this hugely entertaining snorts-and-all biography reveals Maradona to be all these things and more. - Little White Lies EDIT

100% Portrait of a Lady on Fire (Portrait de la jeune fille en feu) (2019) Sciamma's ravishing celebration of female passion and desire is rooted in mutual sexual awakening but ultimately becomes a story of a much deeper, more spiritual kind of love. - Little White Lies EDIT

74% A Hidden Life (Une vie cachée) (2019) Malick's message is clear: vanquishing evil requires individuals to take a stand, to recognise what is right and what is wrong. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted May 19, 2019
85% The Whistlers (2019) It all amounts to a very entertaining watch, but it's not quite up there with Porimboiu's best. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted May 19, 2019
68% Little Joe (2019) It's impressive how Hausner manages to splice together all these distinctive elements so harmoniously. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted May 18, 2019
90% Pain and Glory (Dolor y Gloria) (2019) As well as expressing his views on love, loss and filmmaking, Almodóvar addresses broader political and social themes, offering thinly-veiled critiques of Catholicism and General Franco's authoritarian leadership. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted May 17, 2019
75% Sorry We Missed You (2019) Its focus is too shallow, its mode of storytelling too blunt-edged and soapy, to have the desired impact. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted May 17, 2019
4/5 80% Mid90s (2018) The dramatic third act is a tad Hollywood, but this is a lot of fun. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 9, 2019
3/5 90% Shazam! (2019) Emphatically earns its exclamation mark, but very little rewatch value with this one. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 4, 2019
3/5 89% Missing Link (2019) Breathtaking visuals, slightly disappointing characters. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 3, 2019
2/5 57% The Highwaymen (2019) An ultra-conservative and criminally dull exercise in selective revisionist history. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 26, 2019
5/5 100% Minding the Gap (2018) A profound study of youth, adulthood and the space in between. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 19, 2019
85% The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind (2019) This is a promising debut from Ejiofor - and further proof of Netflix's willingness to invest in stories which other studios might deem less commercially viable. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 13, 2019
3/5 78% Everybody Knows (Todos lo saben) (2019) A film of heart-wrenching moments that never quite lands a telling emotional blow. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 8, 2019
2/5 19% Serenity (2019) The final nail in the McConaissance coffin. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 27, 2019
4/5 92% High Flying Bird (2019) It is the radical methods and perspective Soderbergh employs that make this feel like an urgent and incisive examination of the intersection between race, sport and money in America today. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 7, 2019
3/5 78% Green Book (2018) Just enough (laughing) gas in the tank to merit its two-hour runtime. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 30, 2019
3/5 33% Welcome to Marwen (2018) See it, then seek out the 2010 documentary Marwencol. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 2, 2019
3/5 66% Lizzie (2018) Performances are the saving grace of a film which, while certainly not lacking in dramatic heft, seems more preoccupied with sexing up the scandal than getting to grips with those at the centre of it. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 14, 2018
2/5 52% Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle (2018) A completely pointless adaptation. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 29, 2018
1/5 15% Robin Hood (2018) A failure on every conceivable level. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 20, 2018
3/5 100% They Shall Not Grow Old (2019) This is a hugely engaging and worthy project, filled with extraordinary tales of camaraderie, courage and unwavering conviction. - Little White Lies EDIT

2/5 81% Dogman (2019) This social realist parable lacks bite. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2018
2/5 29% Venom (2018) Nowhere near as edgy or exciting as it should have been. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 3, 2018
3/5 71% Climax (2019) Sort of like Fame, if the entire cast were high on LSD. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 20, 2018
5/5 91% The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (2018) This is a film about America... one filled with scenes of bloody vengeance, religious zealotry, romantic idealism, slick salesmanship, incoherent ramblings and sunny optimism. It's absolutely glorious. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 31, 2018
89% A Star Is Born (2018) Cooper proves a good cover can work just as well as the original. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 31, 2018
93% The Favourite (2018) [Yorgos Lanthimos'] idiosyncratic style is an acquired taste that's starting to go stale, and as such this is one of those films that works like a charm in the moment but whose spell quickly wears off. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2018
87% First Man (2018) This is a confident but pretty bland technical exercise... The overall result is an authentic, visually impressive viewing experience that doesn't quite land. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2018
4/5 96% BlacKkKlansman (2018) Lee's most entertaining and thought-provoking film in years. - Little White Lies EDIT

Read More | Posted Aug 14, 2018
3/5 77% The Escape (2018) The ending is trite, but Arterton is extremely good. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 31, 2018
4/5 97% Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) Plutonium-powered action on a truly epic scale. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 24, 2018
63% Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) If anything, Sicario 2: Soldado will only fuel the toxic discourse around the perceived crises of immigration, terrorism and organised crime. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 27, 2018
2/5 47% Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018) Forget evolution, this franchise needs a hard reset. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 6, 2018
2/5 70% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) Less a movie, more a colouring in exercise. - Little White Lies EDIT

2/5 24% 7 Days in Entebbe (2018) Like the hijacking itself, you can't help feeling it was all for nothing. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted May 10, 2018
4/5 88% Annihilation (2018) Top-notch sci-fi and a chilling allegory for humanity's capacity for self-destruction. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 5, 2018
5/5 92% Good Time (2017) An intoxicating downer odyssey. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 14, 2017
5/5 95% Call Me by Your Name (2018) A beautiful film about love and longing, one you'll want (and need) to watch again and again and again. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 25, 2017
1/5 52% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) Bloated, artistically impotent and utterly bereft of ideas. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2017
3/5 83% Tom of Finland (2017) Not exactly a deep dive into a lesser-chronicled chapter of 20th century history ... but a worthwhile portrait of a fascinating and hugely influential artist. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 9, 2017
5/5 91% A Ghost Story (2017) Extraordinary. One of the year's most original and best films. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 8, 2017
1/5 49% Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) Maybe just rewatch The Fifth Element instead. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 21, 2017
3/5 92% Dunkirk (2017) A bold, intentionally bloodless film that for the most part works spectacularly well. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 19, 2017
3/5 92% Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) This isn't the same old story of how Peter Parker becomes Spider-Man but rather the story of Spider-Man learning how to be Peter Parker. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 1, 2017
1/5 15% Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) Insultingly poor. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 21, 2017
1/5 29% Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) Worth it for the astonishing open set-piece, but the rest is hot garbage. - Little White Lies EDIT
