2/5 19% Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009) Transformers is entertainment by volume. Both in terms of a decibel level that pummels you into submission, and a whopping run-time of around two-and-a-half hours. It feels like a tipping point - a kind of nirvana for the Ritalin generation.‐ Little White Lies

94% Katyn (2009) Wajda employs a full range of sweeping shots and orchestral cues to ramp up the emotion, although he's often guilty of sacrificing the intimacy of character for the grander narrative of history.‐ Little White Lies

3/5 80% Max Manus: Man of War (2010) If there's nothing distinctly 'Norwegian' about the way that Max Manus is filmed, it's still an enjoyable and illuminating action adventure.‐ Little White Lies
Posted Jun 5, 2009
36% Awaydays (2009) Awaydays is a ham-fisted coming-of-age drama that fails to say anything interesting about male relationships, violence, the 1970s or the peculiar northern soul of Liverpool.‐ Little White Lies

2/5 74% La Fille Coupée en Deux (The Girl Cut in Two) (A Girl Cut in Two) (2008) Chabrol may be one of the great survivors of the New Wave, but this is an old man's film.‐ Little White Lies

3/5 69% Synecdoche, New York (2008) A difficult, maddening and elusive film that's also intriguing, profound and darkly funny.‐ Little White Lies
Posted May 15, 2009
5/5 87% Sounds Like Teen Spirit (2009) An exquisitely poignant, hilarious and uplifting reminder of the power of music, and cinema, to enrich your life.‐ Little White Lies

4/5 69% Delta (2009) Mundruczó's first instinct is aesthetic rather than emotive. But if that strips the film of a measure of moral authority, it only adds to the feeling of hollow nihilism that stays with you long after the closing credits.‐ Little White Lies
Posted May 8, 2009
82% Párpados Azules (Blue Eyelids) (2007) Ernesto Contreras' slow and subtle study of abject loneliness is a curious affair.‐ Little White Lies
Posted May 8, 2009
5/5 98% Let the Right One In (2008) A true original: love story, horror film and social drama. At once brilliant in its parts, and more than the sum of them.‐ Little White Lies

85% Tyson (2009) Tyson won't shatter all your preconceptions, but if you don't at least question them, you haven't been paying attention.‐ Little White Lies
Posted Mar 27, 2009
3/5 85% Wendy and Lucy (2008) Wendy and Lucy is a film of small details and unassuming craftsmanship. It may be too slight for some, but if you let it get under your skin, it packs a devastating emotional coda.‐ Little White Lies

3/5 68% The Universe of Keith Haring (2008) If this really is the universe of Keith Haring, it's a strangely sterile one. Which is never a word you could apply to his work.‐ Little White Lies
Posted Feb 27, 2009
3/5 78% Üç Maymun (Three Monkeys) (2008) Nuri Bilge Ceylan's subtle and fascinating Three Monkeys, a film in which a family's lies uncover a hidden honesty.‐ Little White Lies
Posted Feb 19, 2009
3/5 30% Who Killed Nancy? (2010) More than just third hand testimonials from desperate liggers, Parker paints a portrait of the murky side of punk.‐ Little White Lies
Posted Feb 6, 2009
3/5 89% Bolt (2008) Bolt is a damn enjoyable and undeniably funny film.‐ Little White Lies
Posted Feb 6, 2009
3/5 62% Valkyrie (2008) Valkyrie may not be awards bait but it is a solid, at times gripping, thriller that wrings every ounce of drama out of what is, at heart, a pulsating tale of the courage and idealism of some undone by the cowardice and politics of others.‐ Little White Lies
Posted Jan 23, 2009
41% 27 Dresses (2008) A talented star is let down by a listless genre.‐ Little White Lies

69% Cocaine Cowboys (2006) Ropey graphics and sub-Scarface synth music simply add to the feeling that you're getting a low budget experience.

86% 4:30 (2006) Royston Tan's film comes alive in the green hued semi-darkness of the flat, using long takes and infinite silences to show two troubled souls connecting through their mutual loneliness.‐ Little White Lies

3/5 66% Brick Lane (2008) It's a hard heart that isn't immersed by this delicately told tale.‐ Little White Lies

2/5 82% In Memory of Me (In memoria di me) (2007) It flirts with being a better film than it really is, but never convinces.‐ Little White Lies

2/5 76% Stardust (2007) Brutally disappointing.‐ Little White Lies

2/5 96% Ratatouille (2007) Occasionally inspired, but mostly trivial and pointless.‐ Little White Lies

4/5 88% Superbad (2007) Doesn't quite have the insight of a classic, but it'll have you smirking for weeks.‐ Little White Lies

54% Seraphim Falls (2007) A revenge epic it may be, but a rip-roaring rampage it's not.‐ Little White Lies

2/5 75% Lady Chatterley (2007) Has nothing relevant to say to a modern audience.‐ Little White Lies

81% Taxidermia (2006) You'll need to drag it kicking and screaming from your mind.‐ Little White Lies

70% Molière (2007) Moliere is an exceptionally likeable period comedy, powered by impeccable performances from Luchini and the wonderful Laura Morante.‐ Little White Lies
