Your Name (Kimi No Na Wa.) (2016)

Indignation (2016)

"It's very solid and admirable, if hardly a fun time at the flicks." ‐Little White Lies

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

Richard Linklater: Dream Is Destiny (2016)

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

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
Posted Oct 12, 2016

The Love Witch (2016)

"It's a neo-sexploitation movie with subtle feminist underpinnings." ‐Little White Lies
Posted Oct 11, 2016

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

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

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

Cosmos (2016)

"Not by any means for the faint of heart, Cosmos is nonetheless a juddering cloudburst of pure visual and aural energy, a rare instance of deep intellectual enquiry buoyed by unexpected jolts of pulsing emotion." ‐Little White Lies
