Outlaw: How will Nick Love's anti-crime film go down with the lads?



</a>

By Alice Jones


Published: 23 February 2007

At the beginning of Nick Love's new film Outlaw, Danny Dyer's character Dekker brings his zippy convertible screeching to a halt at a junction and comes face to face with the nightmarish vision of a lamp-post adorned with piles of flowers and his photograph. It's a nice variation on the classic gangland warning of sending a funeral wreath to an intended target and sure enough, within seconds a frenzied chase is underway and Dekker is beaten to within an inch of his life by a carload of thugs. But Outlaw isn't just another film about the lives and crimes of all-powerful gangsters. Rather its subject is their victims - ordinary people whose lives have been destroyed by extraordinarily violent crime.Collapse )

Johnny Depp has swaggered past; Orlando Bloom pelted up the stairs and Stellan Skarsgaard stopped for a nice chat. So Total Film is packing away the dictaphone for the evening, dripping in the sticky summer heat and about to head for the tube.

Hello. How are you? A floppy haired fella is brandishing a straight-lipped smile in our direction. TF nods in recognition. Rupert Friend is at the Odeon Leicester Square to support his missus at the premiere of her new flick. Said missus, Keira something-or-other, has a little film out and its about PiratesCollapse )
