    I think I've heard of that one.

    Did it star Arthur Askey?

          It's gotta be Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrells! Such a fun movie. Snatch was equally as good, but think Lock, Stock simply had a better story overall. Guy Ritchie...what a downfall he had. His movies since then have been awful.

              Cannot really pick a favourite, so here’s a top ten in no particular order, which does tend to change depending on what I’ve seen recently.

              The Skull (1965)
              Casino Royale (1967)
              Billion Dollar Brain (1967)
              The Devil Rides Out (1968)
              The Italian Job (1969)
              Otley (1969)
              The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes (1970)
              Diamonds Are Forever (1971)
              Return of the Pink Panther (1975)
              Flash Gordon (1980)

                Well, each to his own, but restricting yourself to a fifteen year period is rather limiting!

                  Could you call Dunkirk a British movie? I guess so...

                    Which version?
                    The 1958 version? Undoubtedly so.
                    The 2017 version? Not so certainly but with a British director so it depends how you measure such things

                        But by far David Lynch's best and most coherent film. Exceptional movie on every level, I agree. I particularly like Freddie Francis' photography

                          I was thinking the Nolan version, yeah.

                            My user name already pins my colours to the mast.I have enjoyed thousands of films before and since first watching A Canterbury Tale, and some (Pool Of London, Seven Days To Noon, Seance On A Wet Afternoon, etc) have struck a major chord with me, but ACT is the one I keep returning to when considering a favourite. It may seem impossible to have a "favourite" when there are so many excellent films in existence, but when something resonates with you to such an extent, for whatever reason, it is hard to deny.
