92% A Fantastic Woman (Una mujer fantástica) (2018) It's a shame as it's all put together with a passion and verve redolent of Pedro Almodovar at his best, but it lacks his ability to sustain tension or lace moments of high seriousness with wild humour.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2017
3/5 77% The Reagan Show (2017) The Reagan Show pretty much gives away its entire thesis in its title, but it's fun to trawl through these archive images and it allows us to ponder whether we'll ever really be able to claw through the protective layers of spin.‐ Little White Lies

1/5 50% On the Road (2016) When the tour winds to a close, it's clear that you're supposed to feel the pangs of heartbreak as everyone heads off to brighter climes. Frankly, we were over the moon to be rid of these wet dullards.‐ Little White Lies

Read More | Posted Sep 21, 2017
2/5 79% Borg vs McEnroe (Borg McEnroe) (2017) Some decent impersonations, but tries too hard to make everything feel meaningful.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Sep 20, 2017
3/5 69% 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
Read More | Posted Sep 13, 2017
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

Read More | Posted Aug 17, 2017
2/5 40% 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
Read More | Posted Aug 15, 2017
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
