Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
71% Dogman (2018) If this two-dimensional approach makes Dogman often ridiculous and silly, the elementary nature of drug addiction justifies it to an extent.‐ Vague Visages

83% Rafiki (2018) Behind the intense palette and relentless rhythm, a careful approach to characters slowly reveals the strength of their feelings as they themselves discover them.‐ Vague Visages

91% Birds of Passage (Pájaros de verano) (2018) Guerra and Gallego may not have reproduced the surreal images from Embrace of the Serpent, but their determination to preserve the history of those who capitalism has destroyed remains as strong and necessary as ever.‐ Vague Visages

4/5 80% Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (2018) When all is said and done, this sequel is brighter, funnier and more touching than anyone could have hoped.‐ Little White Lies

61% Under the Silver Lake (2018) Mitchell exhibits his disdain for meaning, knowledge and human beings (especially women) over more than two hours of faux postmodern intellectualism.‐ The Brag
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2018
95% A Quiet Place (2018) The best horror movies find inspiration in the limits of their hypothesis... and in its final moments, A Quiet Place both solves and acknowledges the latent goofiness of its premise.‐ The Brag

80% Unsane (2018) Unrelenting realism ends up tarnishing the film's moral righteousness by making its important but predictable provocations seem unnecessarily and unrewardingly direct.‐ The Brag

97% Mandy (2018) When body horror is so artful and justified, its silliness only makes it more uplifting.‐ The Brag
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2018
4/5 72% Double Lover (L'amant double) (2018) A genre film taking a woman to the extremes of sanity while always honouring her emotions, L'Amant Double is a bold and often disturbing spectacle.‐ Little White Lies

55% Yomeddine (2018) Sweet but slight.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2018
67% Knife + Heart (Un couteau dans le coeur) (2018) Gonzalez fails to go deep.‐ Little White Lies

4/5 98% Kedi (2017) Kedi ('cat' in Turkish) is much more than a cute film showing these felines' day-to-day lives.‐ Little White Lies

4/5 80% Personal Shopper (2017) [Stewart] offers a refined version of her Twilight saga performance, which oscillates between discreet twitchiness and vocal outbursts, as if emotions had to fight against in order to be felt.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2018
68% Free Fire (2017) Wheatley allows his notorious black humour to resurface, and with 90 minutes of mindless shootouts, he reaches his goal.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2018
84% The Transfiguration (2017) In the end, all has been for nothing, and the vampire genre's exciting possibilities have been wasted on a messy script and messier intentions.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2018
2/5 82% The Brand New Testament (Le tout nouveau testament) (2016) This saccharine religious comedy from Belgium's Jaco Van Dormael fails to live up to its initial promise.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2018
4/5 100% McQueen (2018) A generous and mostly respectful approach to a beautifully complicated and unapologetically hungry man.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jun 5, 2018
92% Revenge (2018) Fargeat's sunny, Morocco-set film first deconstructs, then rebuilds those mechanics from an uncompromising feminist perspective.‐ The Ringer
Read More | Posted May 31, 2018
2/5 56% That Good Night (2017) Only of any value for hardcore John Hurt fans.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted May 9, 2018
5/5 95% Western (2018) Packed with moments of beauty worthy of classic westerns, and makes you want to be more attentive towards others.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Apr 11, 2018
100% The Work (2017) The daring approach of McLeary and Aldous' filmmaking, completely immersive without trying to be invisible or to influence the chain of events, is ... proven to have been a risk worth taking.‐ Cinema Scope
Read More | Posted Mar 21, 2018
B 13% Fifty Shades Freed (2018) Finally, the "Fifty Shades" phenomenon has yielded a disarming comedy that makes this ridiculous material fun to watch.‐ indieWire
Read More | Posted Feb 7, 2018
3/5 80% A Woman's Life (Une vie) (2017) A respectful adaptation, yet one that fails to translate the intensity of Maupassant's writing.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jan 12, 2018
4/5 56% The Greatest Showman (2017) Ridiculously rapturous, idealistic and romantic. A film to be enjoyed and listened to ad nauseam.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Dec 21, 2017
2/5 82% Molly's Game (2018) A game that lacks aggression, and a goofiness that should be more enjoyable.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Dec 20, 2017
92% Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) The script for Three Billboards is undeniably extremely witty and absurd. Yet what takes the film beyond the point of being simply enjoyable is its ever- surprising emotional depth.‐ Spark Magazine
Read More | Posted Nov 1, 2017
2/5 8% The Snowman (2017) A film that feels as butchered as its serial killer's victims. Ludicrous, but fascinatingly so.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Oct 12, 2017
80% Chappaquiddick (2018) Jason Clarke nicely captures Kennedy's confusion as his desire to do the right thing collides with the pressures placed on him by the media and his family.‐ Cinema Scope
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2017
85% Disobedience (2018) The film is never disrespectful of the characters' beliefs or lack thereof, and, to its credit, works towards a hopeful message of integration.‐ Cinema Scope
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2017
82% Molly's Game (2018) As for [Aaron Sorkin's] attempt at a more feminist approach, it's unfortunate that, having finally decided to put a strong, determined woman at the centre of a story, he turns her into an unfeeling and uninteresting robot.‐ Cinema Scope
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2017
87% Professor Marston & The Wonder Women (2017) An odd yet enjoyable film. ‐ Cinema Scope
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2017
2/5 33% Home Again (2017) Home Again is a tone-deaf, embarrassing film, memorable only for some hilariously misjudged lines and its all-round incompetence.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Sep 27, 2017
91% Into the Inferno (2016) It is with this realistic yet pessimistic tone that Herzog ends his entertaining, fairly instructive and well-rounded film.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2017
4/5 90% Hounds of Love (2017) Bleak, tight and unusual. A strong start for Ben Young.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jul 28, 2017
91% Elle (2016) This is Verhoeven's point: the violence Michèle suffers is not isolated, but just an extreme symptom of the misogyny that permeates Michèle's life.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jun 29, 2017
78% The Day After (Geu-hu) (2018) The premise is less interesting than the director's precise execution and presentation of the material, and the simple but brilliant script makes this an unpretentious, authentic moral tale, which is often very funny, if a bit slight.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted May 26, 2017
2/5 61% The Zookeeper's Wife (2017) Your time will be much better spent in an actual zoo.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Apr 20, 2017
3/5 90% The Lego Batman Movie (2017) A very silly movie that quietly does its bit in setting moral standards for young audiences.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Feb 6, 2017
3/5 72% Sing (2016) A modest family feature that offers more than empty flash.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Jan 27, 2017
2/5 72% Nocturnal Animals (2016) As gratuitously cruel as A Single Man was tender.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Nov 4, 2016
2/5 52% The Accountant (2016) This cast deserves better than a faux-'70s action thriller. Tedious and forgettable.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Nov 3, 2016
4/5 89% After Love (L'économie du couple) (2017) An unassuming but heartbreaking film that just may stay with you without you even noticing.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Oct 28, 2016
4/5 89% Doctor Strange (2016) At long last - a light, funny superhero movie that embraces the fantasy aspects of the genre in both its story and form.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Oct 25, 2016
88% Nocturama (2017) Throughout the film, the teenagers never discuss the exact motivation behind their attacks. In fact, they barely talk at all. Yet their deafening silence is revelatory in itself, speaking of a general, suffocating malaise in the Parisian air.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Oct 21, 2016
4/5 100% Justin Timberlake + The Tennessee Kids (2016) A joyous experience and proof, if any was needed, that Demme and Timberlake are still at the top of their game.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Oct 19, 2016
4/5 97% Hell or High Water (2016) Unexpected directions, sharp humour and powerful performances.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2016
2/5 55% Jason Bourne (2016) Its few thrills and interesting developments won't make this episode memorable.‐ Little White Lies
