Inside there’s an interview with the director and the lead actresses; there are features on current female cinematographers; and a look at the denim craze in 80s + 90s film. Plus the usual roundup of film reviews and interviews.add to my subscription
issue 75 of Little White Lies is something different, and something a little radical. As editor David Jenkins writes in the brief: ‘the world is fucked’. The issue is therefore a response to that imperfect of circumstances and asks if movies can change the world. A bumper list of regular LWL writers come up with one movie to show the world’s leaders and describe why it could effect change. Movies like Hitchcock’s ‘Rope’, ‘The Lives of Others’, ’13 Lakes’, ‘The Battle of Algiers’ and ‘Born in Flames’ all feature. As well as this, the usual compendium of reviews are also included.add to my subscription
