  2. British Film Noir Guide (369 Films 1937-1964)'s icon

    British Film Noir Guide (369 Films 1937-1964)

    Favs/dislikes: 38:0. "This work presents 369 British films produced between 1937 and 1964 that embody many of the same filmic qualities as those "black films" made in the United States during the classic film noir era. This reference work makes a case for the inclusion of the British films in the film noir canon, which is still considered by some to be an exclusively American inventory. The following information is presented: a quotation from the film; title and release date; a one- to five-star rating; production company, director, cinematographer, screenwriter, and main performers; and a plot synopsis with commentary. Appendices categorize films by rating, release date, director and cinematographer and also provide a noir and non-noir breakdown of the 47 films presented on the Edgar Wallace Mystery Theatre, a 1960 British television series." NOTE: I created this list in May 2012 and had to add well over 75 titles to iCM, suggesting that there are many obscurities worth checking out. Keaney included 26 of the 47 Edgar Wallace Mystery Theatre "films" into this work that he considered to be film noirs or at the very least marginal noirs. The remaining 21 "films" were not included. Keaney's ratings: #1-4: ★★★★★ #5-15: ★★★★½ #16-42: ★★★★ #43-85: ★★★½ #86-150: ★★★ #151-234: ★★½ #235-312: ★★ #313-339: ★½ #340-341: ★ #342-369: "Not reviewed" (since they were not available at the time of writing). Michael F. Keaney is a fan of classic movies and the author of "Film Noir Guide". ISBN: 978-0-7864-6427-2

  4. Mike Leigh Films's icon

    Mike Leigh Films

    Favs/dislikes: 32:0. All the films (and tv movies) of the great English director Mike Leigh. I'd say he's my favourite director, I just have a strong personal connection with so many of his films and characters. I've seen all his features except Bleak Moments, his debut. Look out for his next feature called Mr. Turner, due for release in 2014. Starring long term collaborator and fantastic actor, Timothy Spall in the title role.
  5. Powell & Pressburger Filmography's icon

    Powell & Pressburger Filmography

    Favs/dislikes: 27:0. A complete list of the film collaborations between Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger (a.k.a. The Archers) "I think that a film should have a good story, a clear story, and it should have, if possible, something which is probably the most difficult thing - it should have a little bit of magic...Magic being untouchable and very difficult to cast, you can't deal with it at all. You can only try to prepare some nests, hoping that a little bit of magic will slide into them." (Emeric Pressburger)

  12. Empire: The 50 Best Films Of 2014's icon

    Empire: The 50 Best Films Of 2014

    Favs/dislikes: 10:0. The votes are in, the heated debate has finally subsided and the hanging chads have all been recycled, which means Empire's 50 Best Films Of 2014 - those films with UK releases between January 1 and December 26 - has arrived. Movie critiquing is a subjective business so each and every member of the Empireverse was asked to submit a list of their favourite films release in the UK in 2014, and our mathematicians bunged all the results into a science oven and, presto, from the charred embers emerged over four dozen terrific slices of motion-picture magic, including 12 features from debut filmmakers. Now all you have to do is tell us what we've missed in the usual place.
  13. History of UK in Cinema's icon

    Silent Britain

    Favs/dislikes: 6:0. All films mentioned by name in the 2006 documentary directed by David Thompson called _Silent Britain_, in the order in which they are mentioned. Not found on iCM or imdb: Train Entering Hove Station (1897), which the documentary describes as a response to the famous 1896 Lumiere film, L'arrivée d'un train à La Ciotat. I am guessing that this movie by George Albert Smith is the film imdb calls Passenger Train (1897): Edit: I've now added the latter film to iCM and to this list.

    75 Films that only could only have been made in Britain

    Favs/dislikes: 3:0. arly Hitchcock, vintage Bond, horrifying Ben Wheatley... Are these the greatest British films ever made? We think so Hollywood brings glitz, glamour and big budgets to movie-making; France has avant-garde artistry. But what about Britain? Looking at our selection of the 75 greatest British movies of the past century, you'll find that Britain excels at genres you'd expect (kitchen sink and period drama, class-obsessed satire) and plenty you wouldn't (strange sci-fi, blood-freezing contemporary horror). Here are the essential home-grown films to watch, listed in the order they were made: (THE TELEGRAPH)
  24. Alan Clarke Filmography's icon

    Alan Clarke Filmography

    Favs/dislikes: 3:0. "It is a rare director who is at once one of the foremost stylists and pioneering realists of cinema, but Alan Clarke falls into both categories. His relentless and innovative examination of contemporary British society, paired with the integrity of his approach, makes him an exemplar for socially conscious filmmaking[...] Clarke’s ability to direct so often and his low critical profile today stem from the same reason: his films were for television, where a weekly feature slot meant numerous directing opportunities and instant ubiquity during transmission[...]" (Nicholas Rapold, Senses of Cinema)
