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

The Lady In The Van (2015)

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

Brief Encounter (1945)

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

Magic Mike XXL (2015)

"Magic Mike XXL might be tedious if gender-flipped because sexualised images are the norm when it comes to representations of women. They are not the norm for men." ‐Little White Lies

Amy (2015)

"If only this film hadn't been so desperate to shoehorn in all the drama and had examined a more esoteric slice of her life, we might have come away with a more intimate portrait that merited such a familiar title." ‐Little White Lies

She's Funny That Way (2015)

"It's entertaining enough and a fine showcase for all of its actors (it's nice to be reminded of Rhys Ifans' comic timing). Just don't come looking for anything new." ‐Little White Lies

A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night (2014)

"Like a mosaic of shimmering fragments that do not compose a bigger picture, Ana Lily Amirpour's debut feature brims with stylised qualities that have been prioritised over story and characters." ‐Little White Lies
