'Walker was one of the few critics with a recognisable voice. It comes through loud and clear in this, the third part of his trilogy... His knowledge was without parallel.' ( SUNDAY TIMES)
'Discussions of films are sparkily incisive, which also makes the book a great way to remind yourself of all the films you want to see.' ( GUARDIAN)
'Orion's reprinting of three of his books provide an opportunity to appreciate [Walker's] uniqueness... Walker was right far more often than he was wrong.' (David Hepworth WORD)
'It's stuffed with good scoops, awful stats and strange memories. Walker was always a ferocious watchdog, and he's as bristly here as ever.' ( EVENING STANDARD)
FOUR WEDDINGS AND A FUNERAL, NOTTING HILL, THE FULL MONTY, BRIDGET JONES' DIARY - all made in Britain, all huge successes, but none financed by British money...
Walker's previous volumes, HOLLYWOOD ENGLAND and NATIONAL HEROES, covered the period until 1984. This final volume tells the inside story right up to date of why a nation that produces actors of the calibre of Kenneth Branagh, Daniel Day-Lewis, Hugh Grant, Emma Thompson, Robert Carlyle, Kate Winslet and directors such as Anthony Minghella, Sam Mendes, Stephen Frears, Neil Jordan, Peter Greenaway, Ken Loach and Guy Ritchie cannot sustain a native film industry.
Walker's revelations on the iniquities of National Lottery funding of movies - over £200m to date and hardly a profitable film among those so far produced - have been headline news. Walker relates the extraordinary events of the past two decades years through the individuals, the companies and the studios.
