4/5 97% Booksmart (2019) A solid debut for Wilde, but really puts Dever and Feldstein on the map. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted May 26, 2019
33% Sibyl (2019) It is a formulaic story about a woman who has zero redeeming features, and lacks the charm to carry that repugnance off. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted May 25, 2019
51% Matthias and Maxime (2019) Reflects the agony and the ecstasy of being young and reckless with such eloquence, and reminds us that Dolan at his best is a sublimely talented artist. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted May 23, 2019
98% Parasite (Gisaengchung) (2019) Pivoting from hysteria to grotesque on a moment's notice, it's a bloodthirsty farce. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted May 22, 2019
92% Once Upon a Time In Hollywood (2019) Tarantino's 9th feature is his most pared back, thoughtful and perhaps personal work to date. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted May 22, 2019
89% Atlantics (Atlantique) (2019) It's an accomplished first feature even with its faults, and Diop should definitely be on everyone's radar as a filmmaker to watch. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted May 17, 2019
52% The Dead Don't Die (2019) We come to Jarmusch for his unmistakable dry wit and rejection of convention, yet The Dead Don't Die feels oddly conservative in places - though Driver and Swinton alone are enough to keep the hunger at bay. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted May 15, 2019
3/5 52% Destination Wedding (2018) Given that Winona and Keanu are old pals, they have an easy chemistry together, even playing such utterly repugnant characters. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted May 9, 2019
3/5 66% Pokémon Detective Pikachu (2019) A fun, fanciful film - not for the ages, but never outstays its welcome. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted May 3, 2019
4/5 94% Avengers: Endgame (2019) A potent reminder of all that's good and bad about movies. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 24, 2019
4/5 73% Dragged Across Concrete (2019) Unrelenting, glib and actually quite intelligent beneath the guts and gore. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 18, 2019
2/5 47% Dumbo (2019) There's no sense of wonder, no sprinkling of magic dust. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 26, 2019
2/5 80% At Eternity's Gate (2018) Clumsy and tiresome, playing into outdated ideas about mental health. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 26, 2019
2/5 72% Triple Frontier (2019) Fails as an action film, fails as a drama. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2019
3/5 78% Captain Marvel (2019) In the age of the dour superhero flick, Captain Marvel strikes a pleasing chord, at once delivering levity, gravity and spectacle. - Little White Lies EDIT

3/5 86% Hannah (2018) Rampling elevates an otherwise fairly middling film. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 1, 2019
2/5 74% On the Basis of Sex (2019) A paint-by-numbers portrait of an American icon. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 20, 2019
90% Big Time Adolescence (2019) The surprising melancholy of the film juxtaposed with the quick wit of Davidson does hint at something worthy in Orley's vision, but it's just not quite enough to set the world on fire. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 1, 2019
2/5 63% Velvet Buzzsaw (2019) A rushed and scattershot affair. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 30, 2019
94% The Report (2019) A sense of quiet fury courses throughout the narrative, but we never see that explode onto the screen, and it's a more interesting, thoughtful film for it. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 28, 2019
93% The Last Tree (2019) Newcomer Sam Adewunmi captures Femi's anger but also his loneliness - a desperate longing to forge his own path, but also to fit in with his family and friends. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 27, 2019
56% Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (2019) It fails to show us anything about Bundy that isn't already there in archive footage (which also appears at the end of the film), and only scratches the surface of the true depravity its subject was capable of. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 27, 2019
79% The Nightingale (2019) It's a devastating, uncomfortable watch. But there's a sense that The Nightingale needs to be exactly the film it is, bubbling with completely justified anger and pain. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2019
75% Untouchable (2019) Untouchable feels like it's just going through the motions. - Little White Lies EDIT

Read More | Posted Jan 14, 2019
1/5 14% Life Itself (2018) It's quite a feat for a film to feel this dated upon initial release. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 3, 2019
3/5 63% Bird Box (2018) Brutal and tense, but we've seen it all before. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 21, 2018
2/5 52% Papillon (2018) Fails to do anything the original version didn't. - Little White Lies EDIT

Read More | Posted Dec 13, 2018
5/5 58% The House That Jack Built (2018) There's no redemptive narrative arc to The House That Jack Built; it's murder as farce, and if you can stomach it, you're in for one hell of a trip. - SciFiNow EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 13, 2018
4/5 93% The Old Man & the Gun (2018) It's a shame Redford might be retiring, but what a fitting note to go out on. - Little White Lies EDIT

4/5 98% Won't You Be My Neighbor? (2018) Not beyond reproach, but a fitting tribute to a pop culture icon. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 7, 2018
4/5 94% Wildlife (2018) A slow burn, but when it catches light, it's a wildfire. - Little White Lies EDIT

Read More | Posted Oct 31, 2018
3/5 76% Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot (2018) Phoenix and Hill are great, though it's all a bit warm and fuzzy. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 24, 2018
2/5 61% Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) Toothless mass-market pop revisionism which is no where near as cool or compelling as its subject. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 24, 2018
2/5 80% Utøya: July 22 (Utøya 22. Juli) (2018) There's something quite ghoulish about Poppe's fictionalisation of unspeakable horror. - Little White Lies EDIT
