Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/5 14% Blumhouse's Truth or Dare (2018) Though the film provides none of the thrills expected, it is undeniably amusing - if only in an absurd, utterly mind-boggling way.‐ Little White Lies

3/5 92% Love, Simon (2018) Despite...strangely misjudged moments, Love, Simon succeeds in navigating most of the pitfalls of the gay coming-of-age narrative and is ultimately moving and genuine.‐ Little White Lies

1/5 17% Death Wish (2018) Just watch the original instead.‐ Little White Lies

75% Lost In London Live (2017) This humour coupled with the film's dazzling technical accomplishments give it lasting value beyond its unique 'live' aspect.‐ Little White Lies

72% XX (2017) Framed by pretty banal animation, the film as a whole reflects a rather limited vision of womanhood, with three shorts focused solely on mothers. That XX proves patchy is a disappointment, particularly as it is a noble project.‐ Little White Lies

98% Moonlight (2016) Jenkins' authorial voice is resounding and strong and his determination admirable.‐ Little White Lies

61% Snowden (2016) Yet although Gordon-Levitt presence helps to keep us invested in the story, you'll be left wondering how this dull, overlong film might have turned out in the hands of a less bombastic filmmaker.‐ Little White Lies

84% Amanda Knox (2016) Rather, beneath the film's superficial status as a simple, factual summary of events, lies a tongue-in-cheek, cutting and ultimately chilling critique of sensationalism, selfishness and self-delusion.‐ Little White Lies

5/5 49% Tomb Raider (2018) Sensitivity and realism elevates the stakes of the film to such an extent that, combined with its playfulness and inventiveness, we can already safely call Tomb Raider one of the year's best action films.‐ Little White Lies

3/5 42% Mary Magdalene (2018) Although a rather elegant and serene interpretation of an eternal story, this film has little new or interesting to offer either to believers or non-believers.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Mar 14, 2018
2/5 47% Red Sparrow (2018) Some interesting ideas, but ultimately just another film using sexual violence as a plot point.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Mar 1, 2018
3/5 52% Roman J. Israel, Esq. (2017) Clearly conceived as a morality play, the awkwardly titled film is too contrived and predictable to efficiently deliver the emotional punch it aims for.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jan 31, 2018
4/5 57% The Commuter (2018) From the incredible Godardian opening sequence to the final cheesy resolution, this is a total delight.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jan 17, 2018
2/5 87% Only the Brave (2017) Long, tedious and not much fun at all. The ending is good though.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Nov 8, 2017
3/5 35% Jigsaw (2017) Jigsaw isn't any less competent than the best of its predecessors, but it is little more than a capable rehash of things these films have done over and over.‐ Little White Lies

3/5 40% The Mountain Between Us (2017) This is not a great movie. But it's a fun one we shall remember fondly.‐ Little White Lies

100% Oh Lucy! (2018) Atsuko Hirayanagi's directorial debut is the darkly comic story of a middle-aged Japanese woman in crisis.‐ Seventh Row
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2017
73% Mom and Dad (2018) What could have been a cynical, sadistic and cold deconstruction of the family unit-The Belko Experiment set in the home rather than at the office-is much more good-natured and straightforwardly enjoyable than this synopsis may suggest.‐ Cinema Scope
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2017
100% I Am Not a Witch (2017) The film's feminist critique gradually creeps up on the viewer with understandable and invigorating anger, culminating in a gut-wrenchingly shocking ending.‐ Cinema Scope
Read More | Posted Sep 25, 2017
No Score Yet Suleiman Mountain (2017) A roller coaster ride that ends on a moving note of stillness. ‐ Seventh Row
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2017
80% The Other Side of Everything (Druga strana svega) (2017) It's a vivid and nuanced portrait of a country too often judged from the outside, still divided by what happened, and conscious of the fact that there can be no easy solutions.‐ Seventh Row
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2017
100% The Judge (2018) Director Erika Cohn pragmatically and fairly addresses every side of the issue with inspiring assurance and clarity.‐ Seventh Row

Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2017

Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2017
92% Zama (2018) Out of the hypnotic rhythm of the film regularly bursts the harsh violence of colonialism. ‐ Seventh Row
Read More | Posted Sep 18, 2017
78% Jeannette: The Childhood of Joan of Arc (Jeannette l'enfance de Jeanne d'Arc) (2017) This singular musical gloriously combines gorgeous beachside settings, idiosyncratic non-actors, beautifully low-key singing, and heavy metal for one of the most joyous experiences the festival has to offer.‐ Seventh Row

2/5 34% American Assassin (2017) Kitsch's performance is almost indistinguishable from O'Brien's, and there is no sense that one character is more insane or evil than the other.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2017
31% Salt and Fire (2017) ... sure enough Herzog's continued thematic exploration of the often fraught cohabitation between man and nature comes through.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2017
96% First Reformed (2018) What keeps us alert as viewers is not the slow disintegration of this man's faith, but the deep ambiguity about where the film's sympathies actually lie.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2017
2/5 87% Wind River (2017) A terrible shame to use such an interesting setting for such a conventional story.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2017
1/5 41% Death Note (2017) A project that feels both overdetermined and underdeveloped.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Aug 29, 2017
1/5 16% The Dark Tower (2017) Not even bad enough to be fun.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Aug 19, 2017
100% Things to Come (L'avenir) (2016) [Huppert] carries the film through its most surprising and heart-wrenching moments. ‐ Seventh Row
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2017
94% Being 17 (Quand on a 17 ans) (2016) Being 17 cleverly embraces its own silliness in a way that is both reassuring and endlessly pleasurable. ‐ Seventh Row
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2017
94% Strike a Pose (2017) Strike a Pose is very direct and gripping in how it addresses "the closet" and the sometimes traumatising emotions it may create.‐ Seventh Row
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2017
83% Kiki (2017) Kiki serves as a reminder that in parts of American and Western society, minorities are still rejected from the mainstream on the basis of dated, racist, and homophobic prejudices.‐ Seventh Row

52% Porto (2017) Gabe Klinger's Porto is a prime example of a seemingly romantic film that is insidiously misogynistic which uses multiple film stocks as an aesthetic gimmick.‐ Seventh Row

3/5 68% Cars 3 (2017) Nothing exceptional but I am still moved just thinking about that ending.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jul 14, 2017
70% Café Society (2016) Nothing can prepare you enough for the film's brutal sexism. Slim pickings, indeed.‐ Seventh Row
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2017
80% Personal Affairs (2016) Even in these more dramatic moments of truth, the film keeps its sense of humour and levity. ‐ Seventh Row
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2017
78% American Honey (2016) American Honey persistently tries to conjure "movie magic" moments, which might work if they weren't so predictable. ‐ Seventh Row
Read More | Posted Jul 12, 2017
3/5 88% It Comes At Night (2017) Rather disappointing in the end, but Shults delivers a few memorable scares.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jul 5, 2017
No Score Yet Just Like Our Parents (Como Nossos Pais) (2017) After a slow start to the Berlinale film festival, Lais Bodanzky's Just Like Our Parents emerged as one of the highlights.‐ Seventh Row

94% A Fantastic Woman (Una mujer fantástica) (2018) In the end, A Fantastic Woman proves a subtle and poignant statement on what we accept as 'normal'.‐ Seventh Row
Read More | Posted Jun 30, 2017
100% Close Knit (Karera ga honki de amu toki wa) (2017) Close-Knit leaves a lasting impression not simply of the injustice faced by transgender people, but also of what joy there could be if society were more tolerant.‐ Seventh Row
Read More | Posted Jun 29, 2017
89% Let the Sunshine In (Un beau soleil intérieur) (2018) A tale of frustrations and desires, otherness and encounters, Denis' first true comedy - or shall we say, her first genuinely humorous film - proves just as profound and attuned to the complexity of human relationships as her previous work.‐ Seventh Row

4/5 98% Kedi (2017) This is the film the world needs right now.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jun 29, 2017
67% Los Perros (2017) Los Perros does not only remind us that all lives are inherently political. It also draws attention to how difficult it is for women to uphold their political stance within a system that regularly discredits them.‐ Seventh Row

4/5 73% Gifted (2017) Films that are so good in so many ways do not come around very often.‐ Little White Lies
