    You can have joint favourites or co favourites in a horse race.

    The Ballad of Shirley Collins
    When we started this journey several years ago, there was no expectation at all that Shirley would ever sing again. What initially attracted us to making the movie was Shirley’s deep commitment to English folk tradition, and her little-known involvement in arguably the most important field-recording trip of all time; back in 1959 with her then-lover, the iconic ethnomusicologist Alan Lomax. The film was going to be about the past, and about the 30 years she had spent living without the thing she loved most. It’s been an absolute privilege to be with Shirley on this long journey back to her
    singing again, and along the way, the film has evolved into something we never expected.

    Documentarie films are most classics, I do love them.

    I can't really specify a favourite, i certainly enjoy watching any British (or foreign) film made in the London area studios whatever the quality, mainly for spotting previously uncredited actors or supporting artistes, stuntmen, musicians etc.

    The films i have watched and re-watched many times are :-

    British film (made exclusively in the UK)
    A Night to Remember (1958)

    British film (made on location)
    Mr. Arkadin (1955)

    British documentary film
    Let it Be (1970)

    White Corridors (1951)... the beginning of all good british hospital movies.
    I reed this movie isn`t suitable for childrens and I don`t know why...but okay, the movie is from the early 50s.

    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.

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

    Steve
    I was thinking the Nolan version, yeah.

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

    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!
