Goodnight Mommy (2015)

"Builds and builds and builds in its intensity." ‐Little White Lies

Time Out Of Mind (2015)

"It peters out on the home stretch, but there's so much here that's impressive." ‐Little White Lies

The Brothers Grimsby (2016)

"As a comedy character actor, Cohen stinks to high heaven. When making movies like Grimsby, his skill set doesn't gel with the framework around it." ‐Little White Lies

Hail, Caesar! (2016)

"Every new scene is a surprising delight in what, at the time, appearing as a sunny, screwball satire pinpointing the moment where the Hollywood production line was starting to clank and creak." ‐Little White Lies

How To Be Single (2016)

"The film doesn't reinvent any wheels, and it doesn't try to. But it hits a lot of small, important notes dead on, which helps How to Be Single rise above the rabble." Observer (UK)

3/5 54%

Triple 9 (2016)

"No amount of buck‑toothed Woody Harrelson, wistful con Chiwetel Ejiofor or ripped everyman Casey Affleck can save this from comfortable mediocrity." Observer (UK)
Posted Feb 21, 2016
2/5 60%

Orthodox (2015)

"Only the arbitrary twists come as any real surprise, and even those are mostly geared towards the film's single-minded mission of assuring you that life is a meaningless nightmare of suffering, whichever god you happen to kneel before." Observer (UK)
Posted Feb 21, 2016
3/5 100%

Mavis! (2016)

"The film's chief pleasure is that it allows you some vital hang time with this obscenely affable artist." Observer (UK)

The Finest Hours (2016)

"Sweetly appealing - and Pine's rain-acting game is strong - it's a shame that the title tells you exactly how everything turns out." Observer (UK)
Posted Feb 21, 2016
2/5 76%

Chronic (2016)

"It's little more than arty scaremongering for hypochondriacs, which is a crying shame, because Roth is stellar as the lead." Observer (UK)
Posted Feb 21, 2016
3/5 48%

Freeheld (2015)

"Sollett mounts a full-scale attack on the tear ducts as he rolls out scene after scene of inspiring oratory, heart-rending illness and full-on liberal do-gooding. And it works like gangbusters ..." Observer (UK)

Bone Tomahawk (2015)

"A radical fusion of disparate elements which all enhance one another beautifully." Observer (UK)

Triple 9 (2016)

"It's hardly a chore to sit through, but you do feel that Hillcoat was striving for something grander than he actually ended up with." ‐Little White Lies

I'll See You in My Dreams (2015)

"Corny for certain, but very charming to boot." ‐Little White Lies
Posted Feb 12, 2016
1/5 34%

The Green Inferno (2015)

"es, Roth's film has its expected moments of high transgression, but you can never get away from the fact that all these references have been attached to the most hackneyed teen slasher narrative imaginable." ‐Little White Lies
Posted Feb 12, 2016
3/5 96%

The Survivalist (2015)

"As a calling card movie, it's mightily impressive; dramatically lean, gripping where it needs to be, and a story told with satisfying economy." ‐Little White Lies

Zoolander 2 (2016)

"Easy targets are listlessly ticked off and the final credits come as a sweet release" ‐Little White Lies

2/5 96%

Rams (Hrútar) (2016)

"Though it's fairly obvious how the film is going to play out (and, sadly, it plays out exactly as expected), Rams spends far too long dawdling when it comes to the matter of settling on its tone." ‐Little White Lies

Innocence Of Memories (2015)

"With this essay/documentary hybrid form, Gee has struck gold." ‐Little White Lies

13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi (2016)

"It's all so hateful. Hates women. Hates talking. Hates tact. Loves guns." ‐Little White Lies

Love & Friendship (2016)

"With his ebullient and scaldingly droll latest - a superlative screwball adaptation of Jane Austen's novella 'Lady Susan' - Stillman may have finally located an ensemble of characters who exist in their own time." ‐Little White Lies

Our Brand is Crisis (2015)

"Too light, too silly." ‐Little White Lies

The Big Short (2015)

"Lots of pleasant bluster, but spreads itself a little too thin." ‐Little White Lies

Room (2015)

"Room ... is not a thriller, but a moving feminist tract which explores questions of what it means to be a mother, what it means to give love, and what it means to receive it." ‐Little White Lies

Partisan (2015)

"There's some decent technical stuff here, but the story's a big ol' bust." ‐Little White Lies

Bolshoi Babylon (2015)

"Maybe more interesting as a behind-the-scenes exposé than it is a piece of hard journalism." ‐Little White Lies

A War (Krigen) (2016)

"Just when you think you've got a handle on where the movie's going, there's a knock on the door and everything changes." ‐Little White Lies

Jane Got a Gun (2016)

"Jane Got a Gun manages to tell a modest - you might say highly inconsequential - yarn that's not even lightly spiced with ideas, circumspection, interesting characters or basic logic. It's a film that just... happens." ‐Little White Lies

Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015)

Doctor Zhivago (1965)

"Demands everything from the viewer while offering little in return, with Lean coming across like a despised schoolmaster not wanting to open himself up to his braying students." ‐Little White Lies

Under Milk Wood (2015)

"It all feels very much like an act of pure literary homage rather than giving any clue as to what the piece has to say about the here and the now. Plus, there's just no drama to it." ‐Little White Lies
