Little White Lies is an independent bimonthly film magazine born in 2005 on the ashes of a bankrupt magazine and the dissertation of then founder and creative director Danny Miller. On the cover of each issue there is an illustration of a film to which the main review is dedicated and several in-depth articles.
The films reviewed are rated according to three criteria on a scale of 1 to 5: expectation, pleasure and retrospective review.
As Miller tells in an interview, the first cover of the magazine was an illustration by Steve Zissou (the character played by Bill Murray in Wes Anderson's fourth film, The aquatic adventures of Steve Zissou), made only because the editorial staff could not afford to pay the copyrights of the photos. Yet, thanks also to that cover, Little White Lies has become a veritable cult magazine, elected by the Guardian as the best film magazine on the market.
ISSUE 93 - The Northman Issue
The new issue of Little White Lies magazine is dedicated to the Robert Eggers saga, The Northman.
But this issue is not only a celebration of Eggers and his stellar work within the Hollywood system, but we also look at the concept of originality when it comes to cinematic storytelling and art in general. In this world of prequels, sequels and re-adaptations, is there still room for movies that don't have their existing fan base?
