Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/5 97% Logan (2017) Jackman clearly adores the character, and he embraces the chance to essentially reinvent the mutton-chopped slayer for one final hurrah. It's strange to think that this might stand as one of his greatest performances, but so it goes.‐ Little White Lies

3/5 92% Hidden Figures (2017) Hidden Figures is not a good movie. Sorry, but it's not.‐ Little White Lies

1/5 9% Fifty Shades Darker (2017) Makes The Chronicles of Riddick look like Le Règle du Jeu.‐ Little White Lies

3/5 80% The Park (Le parc) (2016) Definitely worth a watch. And maybe another one too.‐ Little White Lies

3/5 93% Fences (2016) Washington is customarily magnetic, but this is Davis' film.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2017
4/5 94% Prevenge (2016) A genuinely grotesque and original idea that never panders to genre expectation.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Feb 8, 2017
3/5 41% Gold (2017) It's a boilerplate American Dream story for sure, but at least its one where you don't actively wish the central character died in a chip pan fire. Which is something.‐ Little White Lies

5/5 93% Toni Erdmann (2016) As great as you've heard, and probably even greater.‐ Little White Lies

4/5 86% Hacksaw Ridge (2016) A sterling modern war picture with an intriguing moral twist.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jan 24, 2017
2/5 86% Lion (2016) Robustly made, but very little to gnaw on.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jan 20, 2017
4/5 97% GoodFellas (1990) Goodfellas is a terrifying film because, like much of Scorsese's best work, it is about the lives of avuncular psychopaths, and pretty-boy Liotta brilliantly encapsulates that fetid contradiction.‐ Little White Lies

1/5 75% T2 Trainspotting (2017) The cinematic equivalent of Madonna's cover of 'American Pie'.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jan 20, 2017
3/5 34% Live By Night (2017) A hulking folly, but at least an ambitious one.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jan 11, 2017
4/5 87% A Monster Calls (2017) An entirely new kind of YA saga - sensitive rather than superficial, creative rather than prosaic, humane rather than trading on single-serving heroes with zero personality.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Dec 28, 2016
4/5 97% Krisha (2016) Tough to stomach, but incredible talent in front of and behind the camera.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Dec 8, 2016
2/5 71% The Birth of a Nation (2016) The more you think about it, the quicker it falls to pieces.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Dec 6, 2016
4/5 100% The Dreamed Ones (2016) A film with much more to it than meets the eye.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Dec 2, 2016
5/5 94% Blue Velvet (1986) Every viewing yields new insights. A berserko modern classic.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Dec 2, 2016
3/5 71% Bleed For This (2016) A journeyman effort that's satisfyingly light on melodrama.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Nov 30, 2016
2/5 23% Bad Santa 2 (2016) Once seen, instantly forgotten.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Nov 23, 2016
3/5 61% Allied (2016) The film, like Pitt's performance, is all surface and no feeling.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Nov 21, 2016
3/5 97% Your Name (Kimi No Na Wa.) (2016) At least it's ambitious, even if it doesn't quite nail it on the cogent entertainment front.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Nov 18, 2016
3/5 82% Indignation (2016) It's very solid and admirable, if hardly a fun time at the flicks.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Nov 17, 2016
4/5 95% In the Heat of the Night (1967) The film's dutiful thriller mechanics are far less important than its politics - it has passed the test of time more for the small gestures and the iconic lines of dialogue.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Nov 16, 2016
3/5 46% Dog Eat Dog (2016) Instantly forgettable, and there's nothing wrong with that.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Nov 14, 2016
4/5 85% Francofonia (2016) In praise of art, but also a reminder that we need to treasure what we have.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Nov 11, 2016
2/5 93% Richard Linklater: Dream Is Destiny (2016) Poorly made, riding on hyperbole rather than insight.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Nov 4, 2016
1/5 73% You've Been Trumped Too (2016) It doesn't help that Baxter himself is ineffectual as both a journalist and a filmmaker, always trying to place himself within the eyeline of his of lens or emphasise what he's doing rather than what Trump is doing.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Nov 2, 2016
4/5 No Score Yet Further Beyond (2016) Covers an insane amount of ground. Multiple viewings are a must.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Oct 26, 2016
4/5 96% Boyz n the Hood (1991) It feels like it should be cheesy and manipulative, but the utter sincerity lifts it immeasurable.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Oct 26, 2016
3/5 93% Queen of Katwe (2016) A set of solid performances power this underdog flick to victory.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Oct 21, 2016
2/5 93% I, Daniel Blake (2016) A realist melodrama that offers little to no nuance.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Oct 21, 2016
4/5 100% Sonita (2015) A clever, engaging and inclusive way to tackle an extremely depressing and complex subject.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Oct 20, 2016
4/5 81% Kate Plays Christine (2016) Greene's humane form of inside-out documentary isn't just interested in technical questions about the medium - it offers a whispered reminder that we're all out there on our own, and perhaps we should try and embrace that.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Oct 12, 2016
96% The Love Witch (2016) It's a neo-sexploitation movie with subtle feminist underpinnings.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2016
1/5 19% Inferno (2016) If you excised all the shots of people running in Ron Howard's Inferno, the film's entire run time would amount to roughly four minutes.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2016
3/5 64% The Greasy Strangler (2016) Those who like this will love it. Those who dislike this will want the negative fired into the sun.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Oct 6, 2016
2/5 43% The Girl on the Train (2016) A crushingly perfunctory literary adaptation.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2016
3/5 100% The Vanquishing Of The Witch Baba Yaga (2014) The film plays a single note, but it's satisfyingly off-key and is delivered in a range of volumes and textures.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Sep 30, 2016
3/5 98% Under The Shadow (2016) Though ostensibly a horror movie, Babak Anvari's Under the Shadow is also a bluntly effective screed on everyday female suppression.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Sep 29, 2016
3/5 83% The Girl With All the Gifts (2017) Some good stuff in here, but it never really gets better than good.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Sep 21, 2016
4/5 96% De Palma (2016) Riveting and highly entertaining.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2016
5/5 100% El Sur (The South) (1988) Perfection.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Sep 16, 2016
3/5 63% The Magnificent Seven (2016) It's a really solid, really fun classical shoot 'em up.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2016
2/5 69% The Infiltrator (2016) Unlike its undercover hero, plays it very safe.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2016
2/5 94% Paris 05:59: Théo & Hugo (Théo et Hugo dans le même bateau) (2017) It's downhill after the first half.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Sep 9, 2016
2/5 83% Captain Fantastic (2016) Lots of mixed messages, little in the way of excitement.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Sep 9, 2016
4/5 88% The Blue Room (2014) Bursting with melancholy insight.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Sep 8, 2016
3/5 70% Café Society (2016) Ponderous and light, though it comes into its own with the heartening climax.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2016
4/5 100% Things to Come (L'avenir) (2016) If you like Isabelle Huppert, you might want to block out a week in the diary for this one.‐ Little White Lies
