Item description for Johnny Depp: A Kind of Illusion by Denis Meikle...

Examining the career of an actor who excels at choosing sophisticated mainstream movie roles and cult material alike, this exciting screen biography explores Johnny Depp's career—from his breakthrough roles in Edward Scissorhands, Benny & Joon, and What's Eating Gilbert Grape; through his performances in Ed Wood, Dead Man, Donnie Brasco, Sleepy Hollow, and From Hell; right up to his most recent films, including his Oscar-nominated performance in Finding Neverland. Exploring the effects that Depp's new critical and commercial stature may have on the direction of his future career, this updated edition includes 2007's Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End and the forthcoming films Sweeney Todd, The Rum Diary, and Shantaram.

Reviews - What do customers think about Johnny Depp: A Kind of Illusion?

Johnny Depp A Kind of Illusion  Jun 21, 2008
Nicely detailed account starting with Johnny's parents and other family members also a nice set of photos.
Excellent Johnny Depp Book!  Nov 4, 2007
I really enjoyed this book. It is informative without being boring! Johnny is fantastic and great reading.
Don't be Fooled-------  Apr 12, 2007
What a waste of my money! As others have stated, the somewhat detailed "history" of Johnny's family is interesting. However, once the reader gets to his films, it's basically a criticism of Johnny and every film he has done. This is just another author making money from Johnny Depp's name under the guise of being an expert on the actor. A much better read is Johnny Depp by Christopher Heard. This is an author who actually "gets" Johnny Depp and provides more details about his life/movies that are accurate and not opinionated like Meikle.
what can you say;......its johnny.  Jan 7, 2007
Great book on Johnny Depp a must for any true fan.
Denis Meikle: A Kind of DElusion  Aug 27, 2006
I agree with everything Mazzy D said.
This one did start out as a pretty straightforward bio, but as I went along, and it focused on his films and his romances, there came the revelation that this author did not want you to like Johnny Depp, and it's full of misquotes and rumor.
He seems to go out of his way to find the most unflattering reviews and he seems to be bringing down almost all of the films and everyone involved in them (in particular poor Tim Burton)!
Occassionally he'll put a positve comment in there for good measure, but Denis Meikle is a verbose, sef-absorbed charletan.
There's money to be made for anyone and everyone to write rubbish and ride along the crest of Johnny's tidal wave of current success.
I'm glad I did not purchase this book!
