      Audience Member Horrible script and horrible acting. It was actually painful to watch Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Starts with so much promise, but just doesn’t deliver. Unfortunately there something missing from a British film it just feels a bit cheap and thrown together Rated 2 out of 5 stars 10/24/18 Full Review Audience Member I rented this movie on a DVD from Netflix. The fact that it was offered on Netflix should have been my first warning. Since customer reviews are no longer being permitted on Netflix. I forgot to look at the reviews here on Rotten tomatoes. I rented the movie because I like Gabrial Byrne, and Harvey Keitel, (who incidentally, is in the movie for about five minutes). I stopped watching the movie after about 15 minutes, while trying to turn on Close Captioning, because of the awful music. After watching for the 15 minutes, I stopped the movie, and looked up the reviews here on Rotten Tomatoes. The reviews here, confirmed my feeling that any further time watching this thing. Would be a waste of time. Lastly, I found the movie's premise, badly executed, improbable, and boring. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Boy this is so bad you wonder why the excellent Gabriel Byrne & Harvey Keitel got involved - mind you good oldl Harvey will do those TV ads for a well known insurance company. I have seen some stereotypes but this turkey has every nightmare you could think of in one movie. It doesn't know whether it is coming or going and the writers clearly had no idea of what they were doing, except to appeal to the tabloid reading fearmongers amongst us. The villain is sooo bad he could be in a Victorian Melodrama. How this got made is anybody's guess but where a studio would have laughed this laughable pitch out of the door, throwing money at a "pet project" with no movie making ability can still mean you can make such a turd. I am at a loss how someone can put together such a dire product full of stereotypes and every single cliche in the book. It rightly has 0% from critics and deserves even less. Shame on you for this comic book stuff that is an insult to any intelligent person. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member A stunning and heartbreaking portrayal of some very real and difficult issues, with nothing held back. Gripping storylines with incredible acting talent and a refreshing take on storytelling. The character development and twists take a hold of the audience. An absolute masterpiece. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member This film is dire. The acting is something out of Bollywood. Harvey Kietel is onscreen for less than a minute at best. The storyline leaps from one subject to the next with no links or reason. I'd give it zero stars if I could. Waste your time watching it if you don't believe me.

      Craig D. Lindsey Village Voice From the storyline to the score to the climactic reaction shots to the purposely head-scratching ending, Lies We Tell is crammed, histrionic, and way too damn much. Feb 4, 2018 Full Review Simran Hans Observer (UK) The film is hindered by clunky dialogue and strained performances from minor characters ... Rated: 2/5 Feb 4, 2018 Full Review Ella Kemp Little White Lies Nothing to reflect on, nothing to question and nothing to care about. Rated: 2/5 Feb 3, 2018 Full Review Rich Cline Shadows on the Wall A fairly standard British thriller, this is a slickly made but murky, mopey movie with an unfocussed plot that gets lost in the manipulative editing Rated: 2/5 May 9, 2018 Full Review Edward Porter Sunday Times (UK) A drama-cum-thriller about a woman trying to save her sister from a nightmare marriage, it overstuffs its plot and overdoes its melodrama. Rated: 1/5 Feb 5, 2018 Full Review Matthew Bond The Mail on Sunday (UK) There's lots of atmosphere and dramatic potential here, but tangled story-telling and jump-cut editing combine to ensure it's never quite realised. Rated: 2/5 Feb 4, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews
