Little White Lies is a bimonthly independent film magazine born in 2005 on the ashes of a bankrupt magazine and the graduation thesis 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 a 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.
