As the title clearly states, this is not a biography of Danny Dyer, it's all about his movies. As it was only published in late 2013, it covers most of his titles, the good, the awful, and the sometimes excellent. Danny isn't the most versatile actor in Britain, but the characters he can play, he plays them well.
Authors Jonathan Sothcott and James Mullinger have done a great job in putting together what really is a definitive guide to Danny's film career. Danny himself contributed to the book, which is packed full of fascinating information and anecdotes from his co-stars and colleagues. Each film is dealt with in-depth, there's the basic information such as director, producer and cast, the plot, and also the critic's opinions, Danny's opinion, and a wealth of behind-the-scenes information such as how he got the part in the first place. From 'Human Traffic' (1999) to 'Vendetta' (2013), there all here.
The result is a very interesting read, and an insight into the British film industry in general. I have always enjoyed Danny's wit, and many of his quotes in here are priceless. If you're a fan of Danny Dyer the actor, and want to find out more about his films, this is the only book you'll ever need. 'The Films of Danny Dyer' is illustrated throughout with black and white photographs.
