T-Meter Title | Year Review
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

93% 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

63% 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

86% 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

1/5 13% Life Itself (2018) It's quite a feat for a film to feel this dated upon initial release. - Little White Lies EDIT

5/5 59% 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

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

2/5 76% Utøya: July 22 (Utøya 22. Juli) (2018) There's something quite ghoulish about Poppe's fictionalisation of unspeakable horror. - Little White Lies EDIT

83% Her Smell (2019) This is a soulful portrait of a talented but troubled artist, not to mention an exploration of female friendships within an industry still dominated by powerful men. - Little White Lies EDIT

100% Hannah Gadsby: Nanette (2018) Gadsby is tired of censoring her own pain for the sake of making audiences feel comfortable. Nanette is a testament to this. It's time to make audiences feel uncomfortable in order to wake them up. - Little White Lies EDIT

3/5 88% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) This a film that's difficult to actively dislike - Rudd and his equally charming co-stars take care of that - and fun in the moment, but there's precious little that lingers after the credits roll. - Little White Lies EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 6, 2018
4/5 92% Hearts Beat Loud (2018) A slice of pure cinematic joy with Offerman and Clemons on top form. - Little White Lies EDIT
