Phil’s Top 5… British Films

Phil’s Top 5… British Films

Other Cr*p

In a new semi-regular feature each week Phil takes a lookout a different movie related Top Five… this time out: British Films!

NB: Okay this will be British as in made in Britain, by a British director and a mostly British cast.  They MAY be funded by Americans or have American producers but they are at their core British!

 

Close but no cigar: Withnail & I, Dr No, Monty Pythons and The Holy Grail, The Full Monty

 

5 – Get Carter
THE revenge film, even all these years later, few films top the pure class of Michael Caine and Get Carter.

4 – Four Weddings & A Funeral
Four Weddings gave us the renaissance of British films, it gave us Hugh Grant, cemented Richard Curtis as one of the best comedy writers in the world and delivered the best opening scene in comedy history.  Oh and it made grown men cry.

3 – 28 Days Later
Best Zombie film (that’s not a zombie film obviously), 28 Days Later is a stand out of British and horror cinema.  Raw, violent and visceral 28 Day’s Later delivers time and time again on repeat viewing.

2 – Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels
Lock, Stock is for me the best directorial debut of ANY filmmaker ever.  Bold claim I know but seriously when was the last time you watched this film?  Even twenty years on it’s still class and, as was typical of the decade, a killer soundtrack to boot.  A million film tried to copy it but none bettered.

1 – Trainspotting
The style, the direction, the cast, the marketing, the soundtrack and probably at least another fifty reasons if you looked hard enough, Transpotting is just one of the best films of all time period, let alone British films.  It’s no easy watch but it stands as a masterclass in adapting an “unfilmable” book.
