4/5 94% On Body and Soul (A Teströl és Lélekröl) (2017) Mad, singular and heart-stirring in a way that's hard to comprehend.‐ Little White Lies

2/5 72% Borg vs McEnroe (Borg McEnroe) (2017) Some decent impersonations, but tries too hard to make everything feel meaningful.‐ Little White Lies

3/5 67% mother! (2017) There's zero nuance in mother! There's no humanity either, as the characters are broad-brush outlines with the souls extracted and crushed.‐ Little White Lies

4/5 85% It (2017) The film works beautifully as a straight-arrow genre piece, and a portrait of young people taking command of their own destiny.‐ Little White Lies

1/5 7% Tulip Fever (2017) One you'll want to expunge from your mind as quickly as possible.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2017
3/5 89% Mimosas (2017) Mimosas is a languid, lightly experimental affair whose central conceit remains rooted in myth and folklore.‐ Little White Lies

3/5 82% Detroit (2017) Fascinating but deeply flawed.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Aug 22, 2017
5/5 93% Logan Lucky (2017) The script, the direction and the performances work in concert like a souped-up muscle car.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Aug 18, 2017
1/5 56% The Odyssey (L'odyssée) (2016) Feels largely indistinguishable from a number of other prestige movie biographies.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Aug 17, 2017
2/5 38% The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) The strongest scenes are those in which the pair just bicker, making you ponder what this would've been like (and how much cash could've been saved) had this been a single set off-Broadway two hander ...‐ Little White Lies

4/5 100% La Soledad (2016) Gains potency in the mind as a full-bodied portrait of a country in dangerous decline.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Aug 14, 2017
3/5 96% Le Doulos (1962) Some amazing moments, but something of a drag all told.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Aug 10, 2017
2/5 68% Annabelle: Creation (2017) Time to put Annabelle back in the box.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Aug 7, 2017
2/5 80% The Ghoul (2017) Like the oft-referenced Möbius strip, lots of empty surface, precious little feeling.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2017
3/5 93% Williams (2017) Frank Williams has his legacy well and truly besmirched in this highly unflattering and very juicy portrait.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2017
3/5 89% Maudie (2017) A big performance at the centre of rather a modest film.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2017
1/5 10% The Emoji Movie (2017) Please, never again.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jul 31, 2017
4/5 95% I Called Him Morgan (2017) Collin's exceptional, atmospheric film avoids the hysteria and hyperbole of similar true crime documentaries to usher this delicate story in with a palpable sense of sorrow rather than a desire to retroactively point the finger of justice.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jul 28, 2017
4/5 100% Victim (1961) The film's presentation of sexual oppression remains shockingly relevant to this day.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jul 21, 2017
5/5 84% The Death of Louis XIV (La mort de Louis XIV) (2017) Comic, tragic and boasting one hell of a kiss-off quip.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2017
5/5 43% Song to Song (2017) Haters be damed - this is one of the year's best.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jul 7, 2017
3/5 85% The Midwife (Sage femme) (2017) As solid and unassuming as a antique marble kitchen top.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jul 7, 2017
3/5 90% A Man Called Ove (En man som heter Ove) (2016) Not a film to change your view of the world or anything like that, but certainly a pleasant enough sit.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jun 30, 2017
2/5 67% Chubby Funny (2016) This overly-familiar tragic character study never quite makes a connection.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jun 30, 2017
3/5 85% Okja (2017) Big fun, but not quite the clean hit delivered by Bong's last few films.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jun 25, 2017
4/5 100% Edith Walks (2017) A cornucopia of ramshackle delights. 66 minutes of mind-expanding bliss.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jun 23, 2017
1/5 22% The Book of Henry (2017) What... was that?‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jun 19, 2017
1/5 16% The Mummy (2017) Stunningly bad.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jun 9, 2017
5/5 89% Destiny (Der müde Tod) (1924) Even before he was punching out canonical classics, Fritz Lang's genius was supremely evident.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jun 7, 2017
3/5 75% My Cousin Rachel (2017) Not the most interesting or likely of stories, but a scintillating lead turn.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jun 7, 2017
3/5 48% Wilson (2017) A charming performance from Harrelson keeps the disparate elements nicely congealed.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jun 5, 2017
100% Montparnasse Bienvenue (Jeune femme) (2017) Dosch is a revelation. She embodies the character so fully that it's hard to see where she ends and Paula begins.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jun 2, 2017
4/5 97% Daughters of the Dust (1991) The film offers a poetic political vision of a society falling between the stools of progression and regression, asking whether standing off against the travesties of the antebellum American South is the only way to attain true freedom.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jun 1, 2017
5/5 99% My Life as a Zucchini (Ma vie de courgette) (2017) A superlative family film, and one that dares to be different.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jun 1, 2017
3/5 92% Wonder Woman (2017) A rousing adventure yarn, shorn of the usual fanboy mythos.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted May 31, 2017
56% Radiance (Hikari) (2017) It's all set-up and no follow through.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted May 26, 2017
88% Good Time (2017) Good time indeed.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted May 26, 2017
86% 24 Frames (2017) It is occasionally a little repetitive, but this is a mellow, mediative swansong, and Kiarostami's ongoing public dialogue with cinema will be sorely missed.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted May 26, 2017
54% Redoubtable (Le redoutable) (2017) At its best, it's flippant fun, but with its depiction of a hateful, haughty, tortured artist who is losing touch with reality, it feels much more like a film about Woody Allen than it does Godard.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted May 26, 2017
67% A Gentle Creature (2017) When she realises that her odyssey is pointless and that there are far more pressing concerns in Mother Russia than a missing prisoner, Loznitsa takes a bold stylistic U-turn before unloading a final shotgun cartridge to the face in a silly coda.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted May 26, 2017
100% Lover For A Day (L'amant d'un jour) (2017) The veteran French director Philippe Garrel is on a major roll at the moment.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted May 26, 2017
29% Jupiter's Moon (Jupiter holdja) (2017) It's hard to think of a more blatant Hollywood begging letter than Kornél Mundruczó's weirdo, self-serious genre mash-up, Jupiter's Moon.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted May 26, 2017
97% The Florida Project (2017) Beautiful, vibrant, heartfelt and hilarious.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted May 26, 2017
100% Faces Places (Visages, villages) (2017) [An] extremely charming and original new film from Agnès Varda, who is joined by the perma-shaded and like-minded scamp, JR, on her whimsical journey to who-knows-where.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted May 26, 2017
4/5 97% The Road (La Strada) (1954) Undeniably powerful, but also very sentimental at times.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted May 19, 2017
3/5 91% Machines (2016) This haunting documentary takes us inside the industrial hellscape of a Gujarat textile factory.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted May 19, 2017
3/5 57% Tomcat (Kater) (2016) An interesting, small-scale relationship drama that searches for hope in high tragedy.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted May 11, 2017
5/5 92% The Levelling (2017) Expect Hope Dickson Leach to be snapped up by Hollywood in a heartbeat.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted May 9, 2017
5/5 89% Heal the Living (Réparer les vivants) (2017) It suppresses the cinematic staples of romance and melodrama and does away with dramatic coincidence and contrivance to mine emotion from cold, ritualised reality.‐ Little White Lies
