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

5/5 43% Song to Song (2017) Haters be damed - this is one of the year's best.‐ Little White Lies

3/5 85% The Midwife (Sage femme) (2017) As solid and unassuming as a antique marble kitchen top.‐ Little White Lies

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

2/5 67% Chubby Funny (2016) This overly-familiar tragic character study never quite makes a connection.‐ Little White Lies

3/5 85% Okja (2017) Big fun, but not quite the clean hit delivered by Bong's last few films.‐ Little White Lies

4/5 100% Edith Walks (2017) A cornucopia of ramshackle delights. 66 minutes of mind-expanding bliss.‐ Little White Lies

1/5 23% 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 76% 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 46% 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
5/5 100% 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
53% Radiance (Hikari) (2017) It's all set-up and no follow through.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted May 26, 2017
94% 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
57% 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
100% The Florida Project (2017) Beautiful, vibrant, heartfelt and hilarious.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted May 26, 2017
100% 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
3/5 100% 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 88% 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
Read More | Posted Apr 26, 2017
2/5 82% Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) This is the film equivalent of when your uncle walks into the room with a Sonic Youth t-shirt on, and then under bemused interrogation, he admits to having no idea they were even a band - he just likes the design.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Apr 25, 2017
4/5 88% Their Finest (2017) Grows into something special, powered forward by Arterton's charming central turn.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Apr 20, 2017
2/5 73% The Sense Of An Ending (2017) Thematically, the film throws far too much into the pot, to the point where it climaxes on something of an obscure whimper.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Apr 13, 2017
2/5 53% Mad to Be Normal (2017) There's an almost complete absence of narrative progression, or anything that helps you to understand why this needed to be a feature film and not, say, a radio play or a magazine longread.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Apr 2, 2017
5/5 100% Angst Essen Seele auf (Ali: Fear Eats the Soul) (1974) Fassbinder made so many incredible films, but this is certainly up there with his finest.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Mar 30, 2017
4/5 67% Free Fire (2017) More fun than a hopped-up helicopter joy ride.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Mar 29, 2017
1/5 44% Ghost in the Shell (2017) No amount of whispered, meaningful monologue can hoodwink the viewer into believing that this movie is anything more than an shapely, empty vessel with delusions of existential sci-fi grandeur.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Mar 29, 2017
1/5 37% Smurfs: The Lost Village (2017) Never. Smurfing. Again.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Mar 27, 2017
2/5 44% Saban's Power Rangers (2017) Though the Rangers themselves acquit themselves honourably, you never really reach the point where you'd be unhappy to see one of them choke on a fish bone.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Mar 22, 2017
3/5 71% Beauty and the Beast (2017) Its success is guaranteed. Even Ewan McGregor is good.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Mar 3, 2017
2/5 74% Headshot (2017) The film swiftly settles into tedious mano-y-mano match-ups where the same special moves are executed ad infinitum and to seemingly diminishing and anonymous effect.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Mar 3, 2017
2/5 77% Viceroy's House (2017) Too quaint, too polite, too focused on the light comedy rather than the terrifying drama.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2017
5/5 92% Certain Women (2016) It's a heartbreaker, pure and simple.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Mar 1, 2017
1/5 45% It's Only the End of the World (Juste la fin du monde) (2016) The experience of watching this film equates to being tied-up and ball-gagged in the middle of an unsupervised children's party at which all attendees have consumed dangerous quantities of bright, Tartrazine-based fluid.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2017
2/5 45% Sweet Dreams (Fai bei sogni) (2016) Bellocchio is a master craftsman, but his talents are wasted on this thin material.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Feb 23, 2017
4/5 93% 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
Read More | Posted Feb 17, 2017
3/5 92% Hidden Figures (2017) Hidden Figures is not a good movie. Sorry, but it's not.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Feb 16, 2017
1/5 10% Fifty Shades Darker (2017) Makes The Chronicles of Riddick look like Le Règle du Jeu.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Feb 10, 2017
3/5 80% The Park (Le parc) (2016) Definitely worth a watch. And maybe another one too.‐ Little White Lies
