3/5 87% Whitney: Can I Be Me (2017) Dodges pitfalls galore to tell a heartbreaking story with suitable solemnity.‐ Little White Lies

No Score Yet Montparnasse Bienvenue (Jeune femme) (2017) Serraille is less interested in neatly resolving plot strands than she is in depicting the furious moment with all its colour and confusion - a state cinema rarely captures.‐ Sight and Sound

80% You Were Never Really Here (2017) You Were Never Really Here presents as Ramsay's first genre offering, ramping up the body count and bloodshed, while maintaining her usual focus on unusual characters.‐ Little White Lies

78% The Beguiled (2017) Beneath the exquisitely rendered visual and atmospheric gild is a passionate and brilliantly observed lament for female sexuality left to go to seed.‐ Little White Lies

74% The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017) The drained personalities of the characters serve to relieve the film of all dramatic tension.‐ Little White Lies

88% The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) (2017) The relentless pace of the dialogue is at times exhausting, and the tone never really varies, yet this is forgiven when, hours after viewing, you find yourself grinning into the ether, remembering standout hoots from a cornucopia of Meyerowitz tales.‐ Little White Lies

96% 120 Beats Per Minute (120 battements par minute) (2017) This is a Serious Movie that engages the intellect with compelling depictions of place, time and people.‐ Little White Lies

71% The Square (2017) Like Michael Haneke with a funny bone instead of a magnifying glass, Ruben Östlund's vision of humanity is a bleak, almost faithless caricature of our most craven impulses. Nonetheless, there is truth in his perspective.‐ Little White Lies

6 73% Wonderstruck (2017) While Carol's power was built on incremental emotional development, Wonderstruck stacks the deck so that it lives or dies by revelations in the last 15 minutes.‐ Sight and Sound

4/5 89% 20th Century Women (2017) Mills' perspective on formative relationships is absorbing, and he seems like a great guy.‐ Little White Lies

4/5 96% Manchester by the Sea (2016) Each scene brims with self-contained humour and drama, regardless of whether it moves the story along or simply fills in background colour.‐ Little White Lies

5/5 96% Paterson (2016) Everything is structured to evoke poetry through its measured pacing. The space left between events and interactions shows Jarmusch at his most poised.‐ Little White Lies

3/5 93% Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World (2016) Herzog plays intellectual explorer, notching up points of view like a kid in a cerebral candy store.‐ Little White Lies

2/5 79% American Honey (2016) American Honey is too restless and impatient to establish anything and instead rides high on an obviously fabricated atmosphere.‐ Little White Lies

4/5 97% Weiner (2016) The sheer unlikeliness of a politician sharing a name with a slang term for the organ of his undoing reflects the sheer unlikeliness of almost every twist and turn in this fly-on-the-wall thrill ride.‐ Little White Lies

Read More | Posted May 20, 2016
4/5 98% Mustang (2015) The giddy abandon of youthful pleasures are writ large across blissed-out faces and fast mouths. The story moves at speed, with Ergüven constantly resisting the temptation to pause and wring sentiment from a dramatic development.‐ Little White Lies

4/5 93% Janis: Little Girl Blue (2015) A soft woman emerges. Her singing voice may have sounded like a soul cut by sandpaper, but her speaking voice was polite and gentle.‐ Little White Lies

4/5 90% The Lady In The Van (2015) On the surface, The Lady in the Van is mild to a fault but - like its author - it is powered by sharp observations about life and people.‐ Little White Lies

2/5 70% The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 (2015) Mockingjay Part II is a proficient exercise in dragging out a story that was only meant to fill half a movie, but proficient is not the same as exciting.‐ Little White Lies
Read More | Posted Nov 9, 2015
5/5 89% Brief Encounter (1945) Romance and goodness are evoked with equal power and from these conflicting impulses, voluptuous demons spring eternal.‐ Little White Lies

2/5 72% He Named Me Malala (2015) This cagey documentary portrait fails to do justice to its inspiring subject, Malala Yousafzai.‐ Little White Lies

1/5 29% Burnt (2015) Anyone who makes an informed decision to watch Burnt might want to bring a bingo-card of dramatic cliches to tick off during the run-time.‐ Little White Lies

4/5 91% In Cold Blood (1967) Blake and Wilson give wonderfully natural performances: eerie in their casual attitude to murder but endearing in their open natures. In Cold Blood doesn't judge them but doesn't excuse them.‐ Little White Lies

2/5 47% Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials (2015) A sand-castle of a movie.‐ Little White Lies

61% Life (2015) As Life proceeds the pace picks up and by the third act, it is a compelling dramatisation of an artistically fascinating alliance.‐ Little White Lies
