Putting pedal to the metal August 23...
It's been an exciting seven days at LWLies Towers, what with the release of the Little White Lies Cinema App V2 in collaboration with Stella Artois and the relaunch of our website. As if all that wasn't enough, it's time to announce our next issue.
LWLies 43 is tuned to the restless purr of Brazilian director Walter Salles' long-awaited adaptation of Jack Kerouac's iconic Beat novel. Cruising into UK cinemas on October 12, On the Road sees Sam Riley, Garrett Hedlund and Kristen Stewart set out across America in search of life and adventure.
Channelling the stream-of-consciousness spirit of Kerouac's legendary original manuscript, the entire features section of LWLies 43 was typewritten and hand-illustrated onto a single scroll on August 10, 2012 in our 71a events space.
A video dedicated to the making of the scroll will be available via the LWLies YouTube channel very soon, but before then you can check out some behind-the-scenes action via a special Facebook gallery.
Beyond the striking cover portrait by top illustrator Paul X Johnson, we speak exclusively to Kristen Stewart about what it's like being the world's most talked-about actress, while Garrett Hedlund considers superstardom and Walter Salles talks freedom and fatherhood.
Elsewhere, we present a visual celebration of twentieth-century radical individualism, rediscover Shirley Clarke, go in search of Ingmar Bergman and get the view from the track with a modern-day hobo.
This issue also boasts a bumper reviews section, featuring no less than 32 releases from September/October: Joseph Gordon-Levitt has a time crisis in Looper; Andrew Dominik and Brad Pitt forgo Killing Them Softly; Guy Maddin peeks through Keyhole; Karl Urban is Dredd; Christian Petzold banishes Barbara; Leos Carax revs up Holy Motors; Woody Allen travels To Rome with Love; and Miguel Gomes looks back in Tabu.
Plus we've got interviews with Rian Johnson, Guy Maddin and Miguel Gomes.
LWLies 43 – the On the Road issue is available to buy from our online shop now and hits newsstands Thursday August 23.
