Icons in the Fire: The Decline and Fall of Almost Everybody in the British Film Industry 1984-2000 by Alexander Walker


Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill, The Full Monty, Bridget Jones’ Diary—all these box-office hits were made in Britain, and yet none were financed by British money. In this final volume of his trilogy, Alexander Walker gives us the inside story of the British film industry from 1984 to 2000. He tackles questions like why a nation that produces actors of the caliber of Kenneth Branagh, Daniel Day-Lewis, and Emma Thompson, as well as directors like Anthony Minghella, Sam Mendes, and Stephen Frears, cannot sustain a native film industry.
