4/5 100% Kenny (2008) An unexpectedly charming and bitingly funny mock doc. ‐ Time Out
Read More | Posted Sep 17, 2018
4/5 97% The Rider (2018) A remarkable film in many respects, and Zhao works wonders with a non-professional cast.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2018
3/5 34% The Predator (2018) Wilfully offensive and powered by a chest-thumping machismo, but it's good clean fun.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Sep 12, 2018
2/5 93% Searching (2018) Some nice moves but as shallow as YouTube celebrity.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Aug 31, 2018
3/5 93% Cold War (Zimna wojna) (2018) All the ingredients are there, but it doesn't quite come together.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Aug 31, 2018
98% Roma (2018) [Cuarón's] extraordinary and expansive new film, Roma, is on an altogether higher plateau - a transcendent picture album of snatched (albeit hauntingly vivid) memories which dances to its own, off-kilter tune.‐ Little White Lies

3/5 100% The Eyes of Orson Welles (2018) The incredible material helps the film take flight. Bring on the major gallery exhibition.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Aug 15, 2018
5/5 85% Mildred Pierce (1945) This great film is a more subtle, nuanced beast than expected.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Aug 13, 2018
3/5 82% Under the Tree (Undir trénu) (2018) Opts for Grand Guignol over subtle nuance, but entertaining nonetheless.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Aug 10, 2018
3/5 67% The Apparition (L'apparition) (2018) Come for Lindon, stay for young female newcomer, Galatéa Bellugi.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Aug 1, 2018
100% Angelo, My Love (1983) The endearing raggedness of its construction chimes perfectly with the essence of its subject-matter, making it not just a perceptive chronicle of a specific subset, but an example of a filmmaker successfully marrying form with content.‐ Sight and Sound
Read More | Posted Jul 30, 2018
4/5 83% La religieuse (The Nun) (1971) A minutely calibrated and tragic performance from Anna Karina.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jul 26, 2018
3/5 100% Apostasy (2017) Well crafted and of noble intent, even if it sometimes feels as if this material might have worked better as a documentary.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jul 26, 2018
3/5 81% Cocote (2018) Tough going but entirely unique.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jul 25, 2018
2/5 46% Marrowbone (2018) A retro chiller with positively no new or interesting moves.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jul 13, 2018
100% Sans Toit ni Loi (Vagabond) (Without Roof or Rule) (1985) This smooth, gliding action gives the camera the feel of a floating apparition observing a moment while in transit, attempting to draw in as much detail as possible but never stopping to stare.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jun 28, 2018
100% Leave No Trace (2018) Every moment and every character is charged with raw and real emotion. Describing Leave No Trace as a tearjerker barely scratches the surface.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jun 26, 2018
2/5 51% Freak Show (2018) It barely scratches the surface of the complex themes that it wants to explore.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jun 22, 2018
1/5 76% In the Fade (Aus dem Nichts) (2017) Kruger's solid central turn is rendered null and void by the hacky, hyperbolic drama that surrounds it.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jun 22, 2018
3/5 89% Boom for Real: The Late Teenage Years of Jean-Michel Basquiat (2018) A robust and thoughtful profile of a landscape as seen through the prism of an artistic deity.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jun 20, 2018
1/5 68% Ocean's 8 (2018) A poorly directed and written blow-out. This cast deserved better.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jun 16, 2018
3/5 No Score Yet Bixa Travesty (2018) The film lacks for emotional impact and structure, but time spent with Linn is certainly eventful.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jun 15, 2018
2/5 63% The Boy Downstairs (2018) Maybe seek out a Noah Baumbach film instead.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jun 7, 2018
4/5 95% The Breadwinner (2017) A fiery takedown of fundamentalism, bigotry and oppression of all stripes.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted May 24, 2018
5/5 95% Zama (2018) Hard to suppress the hyperbole with this one. Truly an awesome achievement.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted May 23, 2018
88% Whitney (2018) All told it's another solidly constructed doc profile whose very nature leads it to milk the inherent tragedy of a celebrity who checked out ahead of time.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
2/5 68% On Chesil Beach (2018) Something of a prestige slog.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted May 18, 2018
2/5 60% The Young Karl Marx (Le jeune Karl Marx) (2018) There are no memorable shots in the film and Peck seldom attempts to tell the story, or at least exemplify its themes, through visual means. It actually looks a lot like it was made to be consumed on television.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted May 5, 2018
4/5 100% The Old Dark House (1932) A chilling romp - expertly orchestrated scares with a humorous camp undertow.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Apr 27, 2018
3/5 95% Custody (Jusqu'à la garde) (2018) An accomplished debut, with chilling performances from the two leads.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Apr 10, 2018
4/5 87% Thoroughbreds (2018) Remember the name Corey Finley. This fellow will go far.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Apr 3, 2018
3/5 82% Journeyman (2017) The great performances don't quite make up for the functional storyline.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Mar 29, 2018
4/5 81% Have a Nice Day (Hao Ji Le) (2018) A conventional tale of bungled crime given a fresh lick of primary-coloured paint.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2018
2/5 72% Ready Player One (2018) Some solid whizz-bang material, but feels like cod roe when it should be caviar.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2018
5/5 89% My Golden Days (Trois Souvenirs De Ma Jeunesse) (2016) Don't be put off by the subtitles - this is one of the great modern teen movies.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Mar 15, 2018
3/5 70% Erase and Forget (2017) An abstract portrait of a true outsider. Shocking and compelling, even if a little meandering at times.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2018
4/5 75% The Touch (1971) Effortlessly brilliant, even if its central drama starts to feel oppressive in its latter stages.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Feb 25, 2018
4/5 75% You Have No Idea How Much I Love You (Nawet nie wiesz, jak bardzo cie kocham) (2016) Revelatory by the time of its emotional closing scenes.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Feb 15, 2018
4/5 24% The 15:17 to Paris (2018) Another cool and subtle treatise on the nature of heroism from this American master.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Feb 8, 2018
3/5 71% The Mercy (2017) A noble attempt to fictionalise an impossible story.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Feb 5, 2018
3/5 88% Makala (2018) Tough, tough going, but rewarding.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Feb 2, 2018
3/5 93% Journey's End (2018) It's exactly the film you think it's going to be - for better and for worse.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Feb 1, 2018
4/5 85% The Nothing Factory (A Fábrica de Nada) (2017) A film which proves that you can fight the power while dancing at the same time.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jan 25, 2018
3/5 97% Coco (2017) Not top-tier Pixar. But decent enough.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jan 16, 2018
3/5 81% Early Man (2018) An eccentric little film which isn't without its moments. And often very funny.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jan 15, 2018
2/5 69% Eric Clapton: A Life in 12 Bars (2017) Lightly informative, though the film is as humourless and straight as its subject.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jan 11, 2018
5/5 92% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) Give all the awards to McDormand, and then invent a bunch of new ones for her too.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jan 9, 2018
3/5 72% Hostiles (2018) Never noticeably bad, but never noticeably good either.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jan 6, 2018
5/5 90% Persona (1966) Hardcore surrealism is rarely this enjoyable.‐ Little White Lies
