Little White Lies – Issue 74: Isle of Dogs
Little White Lies was established in 2005 as a bi-monthly print magazine committed to championing great movies and the talented people who make them. Combining cutting-edge design, illustration and journalism, they’ve been described as being “at the vanguard of the independent publishing movement.” Their reviews feature a unique tripartite ranking system that captures the different aspects of the movie-going experience. They believe in Truth & Movies.
We go way back, Wes Anderson and us – all the way back, in fact, to the very beginning. In 2005 The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou graced the cover of our very first issue, and two years after that the writer/director’s follow-up feature, The Darjeeling Limited, followed suit. Now, a decade and some 60 issues later, we’re extra excited to pay tribute to Anderson’s newest effort, Isle of Dogs.
