ANNOUNCING LITTLE WHITE LIES #55
As we delve deep into festival season, Little White Lies have opted to pay colourful homage to Canadian filmmaking maestro, David Cronenberg, and his new movie, Maps to the Stars, a withering satire of contemporary Hollywood. We speak to the director about the movie industry’s incestuous creative tendencies, and we also hear from the film’s award-winning star, Julianne Moore, about her three decades as one of the world’s most talented and distinctive actors.
The big centrepiece of the issue is an in-depth index of Cronenberg’s entire career as a filmmaker, writer, opera-director, auto enthusiast, divorcee and actor. The Cronenberg Index brings together a clutch of LWLies regular writers to offer 26 mini essays covering his movies and his obsessions from every angle conceivable, and boasts spooky two-tier illustrations by TCOLondon designer, Lauréne Boglio.
Our eye-scorching cover for this issue was supplied by Polish artist and illustrator Ada Buchholc, and it captures film’s subtle mix of hot, gaudy celebrity and a mortal fear of losing that status. Check our more of Ada’s work here.
The issue also contains a special sealed supplement containing an exclusive interview with director David Fincher ahead of the release of his new film, Gone Girl, on 2 October
