1.0 out of 5 stars Very hard going - very little about the "real" Hopkins, 12 July 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Anthony Hopkins: The Authorised Biography (Paperback)
This book is hard reading. Very little infomation about Hopkins himself. It reads more like a C.V. of his career. I found myself skipping over the cast lists of unknown productions (which was most of them). It appears as if the author has never even met Hopkins and has constructed the book from reviews. Very disapointed.

2.0 out of 5 stars What the Butler's Wife Saw...., 13 May 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Anthony Hopkins: The Authorised Biography (Paperback)
The problem with authorised biographies is that generally they are vanity pieces glorifying the subject. In this case, Falk appears to have taken a hatchet to a seemingly not overly cooperative and rather remote Hopkins and an excessively over cooperative Lady Hopkins who is anxious to interpret her estranged husband's behaviour as the result of lunacy not passion. A very odd book about a very odd couple. It is hard to imagine a marriage stranger than that of this exceptionally gifted and volatile artist and his repressed, doormat wife. And, in light of Hopkins' recent repudiation of his knighthood and US citizenship, the revised biography is not particularly enlightening. The unauthorised biography should be much more interesting.
