The Painted Smile is a website dedicated to interviews, discussion and debate about Politics, Media, Culture and whatever else captures the imagination: there are no boundaries other than what is interesting, thought provoking and exceptional. The overriding ethos is to peer behind the facade; the ‘painted smile’: the title of which is taken from an essay by Alan Moore on the origins of his (prescient?) V for Vendetta graphic novel.
