Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/5 92% Into The Abyss (2011) Moving and thought-provoking in equal measure. A Herzog doc of the highest order. ‐ Little White Lies
Posted Mar 29, 2012
3/5 76% War Horse (2011) Heavy-handed melodrama with flashes of brilliance. ‐ Little White Lies
Posted Jan 12, 2012
1/5 13% Demons Never Die (2011) Neither homage or reinvention, A walking, talking cliché with little to say about truth or fiction. ‐ Little White Lies

4/5 90% Big River Man (2009) For all the straight-faced self-mockery, it somehow remains a tribute to an exceptional man. Big River Man gets away with its archness only because it's evident that somewhere beneath its layers of irony, there is a beating heart. ‐ Little White Lies

29% Mad, Sad & Bad (2009) Mad, Sad & Bad is unengaging, even dull. Most frustratingly, its bitterness at the flip side of success for a new generation of British Asians is left unchanneled.‐ Little White Lies

1/5 15% Year One (2009) This gambit is a catastrophic failure. Cera's loveable puppy-dog schtick is already tired, and Black can no longer carry a dud with likeability and energy alone. As for Ramis, well, perhaps he's not the Messiah after all.‐ Little White Lies

2/5 70% Last Chance Harvey (2009) But while the film tilts progressively further towards the chick-flick (most notably with a cliché-of-clichés trying-on-dresses-to-music scene), some witty moments make this a high-living title in a low-rent market.‐ Little White Lies
Posted Jun 5, 2009
3/5 86% L'Empreinte de l'ange (Mark of an Angel) (2008) Mark of an Angel is formulaic in form and function, but it's a nuanced and intriguing addition to the metier.‐ Little White Lies
Posted May 22, 2009
4/5 95% The Class (2008) This is a fleeting glimpse into a rarely examined world. Despite its honest portrayal of teachers as overworked, underpaid and underappreciated, you even leave the cinema wanting to teach.‐ Little White Lies
Posted Feb 27, 2009
3/5 93% Happy-Go-Lucky (2008) A light-hearted look at a free spirit, with some funny and thought-provoking moments. ‐ Little White Lies
Posted Apr 18, 2008
3/5 84% Out of the Blue (Aramoana) (2007) Compelling but flawed. ‐ Little White Lies
Posted Mar 12, 2008
3/5 24% Shrooms (2008) Scary, trippy and disturbing, although let down by that ending. ‐ Little White Lies
Posted Nov 21, 2007
3/5 85% Le Serpent (The Snake) (2006) An occasionally effective and stylish piece of filmmaking, capturing both the gloss and grime of the best thrillers, and delivering the odd shock as well. ‐ Little White Lies
Posted Sep 14, 2007
38% Firehouse Dog (2007) The all sub-plot story is a veritable self-help manual for tweenies-a sort of Se7en for ages seven-and-up-with greed, pride, sloth and envy bested by humility, team work and fair play. ‐ Little White Lies
