The United Kingdom has plenty to offer, including many wonderful movies. Over the years, famous British actors and not only, have performed in movies that have become history and that are still watched today, even if some of them are extremely old. Here is a top 5 Best British Films of All Time.
28 Days Later
This movie was released in 2002 and the cast includes Cillian Murphy, Brendan Gleson, and Naomie Harris. The first scene in the symbolic zombie fest is actually hairy in more than just one way. Several individuals who consider themselves animal activists, descend on a biological vivisection centre and manage to release a chimpanzee that was infected with contagious rabies. Wwe will not tell you the whole story, but we highly recommend you to watch 28 Days Later, as you will definitely not regret doing so.
Land and Freedom
Land and Freedom is another famous British movie, that was relesed in 1995. The director is Ken Loach, and the cast includes Tom Gilroy, Ian Hart, and Iciar Bollain. Land and Freedom is about fatal splits on the Left. The entire action takes place during the Spanish Civil War, and the movie itself remains one of the Loach’s most ambitious projects that has been successful all over the world. The movie doubly confirmed the director’s return from the wilderness in the 1980s. In plus, it set a precedent for his later movies exploring interesting and attractive global stories in Ireland, Nicaragua, and Los Angeles.
This is England This is England is another excellent British movie that you must watch it in case you haven’t done it so far. The director of This is England is Shane Meadows and the cased is formed by Thomas Turgoose, Jo Hartley, and Stephen Graham. The story is a quite interesting one. It is about a naive and isolated youngster scooped up by some skinheads. The movie established Meadows in a league of his own in terms of comic as well as naturalistic comic dialogue. Furthermore, the movie confirmed Shane Meadows as a director whose main interest is in showing the contrasts between invigorating highs and vicious lows of British eorking-class life.
In This World
We also want to add to our list this stunning Bristish movie, released in 2002. The director, Michael Winterbottoma and the cast, Jamal Udin Torabi and Enayatullah, have managed to bring on the big screens a real story about two Afghan refugees in Pakistan who’s journey takes them to London. At a time when immigration and political trouble in Afghanistan were extremely dangerous, the director wanted to show the terrible realities of being a refugee. All in all, this is a movie that will certainly have a great impact on you.
The Long Good Friday
We will end our top 5 best British films of all time with The Long Good Friday, a movie that is quite old, released in 1980. The director, John Mackenzie and the cast Derek Thompson, Bob Hoskins, and Helen Mirren, were the ones who made this spectacular British movie.
