3/5 96% The Human Factor (2020) This eye-opening - at times eye-rolling - documentary is essential viewing for anyone interested in learning about America's role as self-appointed peacemaker in the Israeli- Palestinian conflict following the end of the Cold War in 1991. - Little White Lies EDIT

64% Drift Away (2021) Renier just about manages to keep things afloat, but ultimately there's not enough wind in the film's sails to keep it on course for its near-two-hour duration. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 3, 2021
82% Memory Box (2021) This affecting drama tackles intergenerational trauma while espousing the value of preserving the past for future generations. - Little White Lies EDIT

2/5 50% The Midnight Sky (2020) A pretty dismal Sad Dad Space Movie. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 9, 2020
2/5 71% Carmilla (2020) Can't help but feel this tale of bloodlust and sexual desire has been de-fanged. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 12, 2020
4/5 100% White Riot (2019) It's a cliché to describe a film as "essential viewing", but this really is. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2020
3/5 70% Tenet (2020) If Nolan has out-Nolaned himself, it's in the action set-pieces which, despite being of head-scrambling technical intricacy, are sharper than Occam's razor and carried off with astonishing economy. - Little White Lies EDIT

3/5 97% Carmine Street Guitars (2019) Kelly might be a dying breed, but this feels like a lasting tribute. - Little White Lies EDIT

1/5 80% True History of the Kelly Gang (2020) This is a film which... mistakes flamboyant posturing and raw physicality for authentic performance. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 26, 2020
2/5 76% Bad Boys for Life (2020) Again, we're reminded that Bad Boys are Bad Boys for life; they ride together and they die together. But the more Bad Boys repeat their well-worn mantra, the more it feels like Bad Boys are trying to convince themselves that the same rules still apply. - Little White Lies EDIT

2/5 64% Motherless Brooklyn (2019) Fascinating though it is to see Norton continue Caro's work in scrutinising the legacy of one of Gotham's most influential and controversial figures, Norton's anti-capitalist message is undermined by his film's sentimental tendencies. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 2, 2019
1/5 46% Last Christmas (2019) Like Kate, Last Christmas is unequivocal in its appreciation of Michael, but it fundamentally misunderstands the daring individualism and self-deprecating wit that underpinned his best work. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 12, 2019
3/5 41% Midway (2019) The success of Midway ultimately rests with the director's decision to provide a more balanced version of events. - Little White Lies EDIT

5/5 95% The Irishman (2019) A new American classic. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 3, 2019
3/5 64% The Day Shall Come (2019) It's a strange film that's never short of surprises, but as with Morris' best work, this subject might have been better served by a TV mockumentary. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 7, 2019
4/5 100% Hitsville: The Making Of Motown (2019) Flickery black-and-white footage of The Temptations and a group of session musicians recording 'My Girl' is nothing short of electrifying - just one of many astonishing archive scenes that will stay with you. - Little White Lies EDIT

1/5 76% Hotel Mumbai (2019) If you are going to mine human suffering for cheap thrills, the least you could do is make it entertaining. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 23, 2019
1/5 25% The Goldfinch (2019) Cinematic taxidermy. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2019
4/5 100% Bait (2019) Strange, spellbinding and timely. One of the most thrillingly original British films in years. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 28, 2019
3/5 100% The Edge (2019) Fascinating from a sporting perspective, and very good on mental health. Well worth a watch. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 17, 2019

Read More | Posted Jul 16, 2019
2/5 57% Ibiza: The Silent Movie (2019) It's all very educational, and not very exciting. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 8, 2019
3/5 90% Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) A fun sojourn for the most part, but a rather awkward transition for the series as a whole. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 2, 2019
3/5 64% Child's Play (2019) A cut above your average horror reboot. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 20, 2019
3/5 23% Men in Black International (2019) Not a patch on the original, but fun in the moment. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 12, 2019
3/5 90% 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
Read More | Posted May 20, 2019
98% Portrait of a Lady on Fire (Portrait de la jeune fille en feu) (2020) 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
Read More | Posted May 20, 2019
81% A Hidden Life (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
83% The Whistlers (2020) 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
67% 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
5/5 96% 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
1/5 88% Sorry We Missed You (2020) 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 88% Missing Link (2019) Breathtaking visuals, slightly disappointing characters. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 3, 2019

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
86% 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 20% Serenity (2019) The final nail in the McConaissance coffin. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 27, 2019
4/5 91% 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 77% 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
