What does Little White Lies do best? It talks to the shiniest shimmering stars of the film world about, well, films. And it asks them one question more than any other: what exactly do they love about movies?
So some clever clogs over at The Church of London Publishing had the brilliant idea of combining their answers into one magical compendium. They’re all there – Steve McQueen, Wes Anderson, Pedro Almodóvar and Quentin Tarantino wrestling for the spot on the director’s chair, and Ryan Gosling, Juliette Binoche, Jake Gyllenhaal and Carey Mulligan lounging in the limelight – waxing lyrical about just what is so smashing about their industry. 50 legends are listed, along with their ode to the silverscreen, a brief bio and a full-page illustration by an array of awesome artists. It’s a riveting read and a lovely insight into just what it is that inspires these famous names and faces.
