Favorite Films from the United Kingdom

These are my favorite films that were produced by companies located/registered in the UK. Or, ones that really feel like they were made there, thus deserving the label. Ha!

In no particular order...

Secrets and Lies
The Imitation Game
Billy Elliot
War of the Buttons
Tyrannosaur
Mr. Turner
Trainspotting
The Crying Game
2001: A Space Odyssey
Frank
Lawrence of Arabia
A Room With a View
Sophie's Choice
About Time
Shame
12 Years a Slave
Broken
Atonement
Pride & Prejudice
The Full Monty
We Need to Talk About Kevin
The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
The Elephant Man
Valmont (technically French but feels British--has Colin Firth as its lead, after all)
Love Actually
Bridget Jones's Diary
This is England
A Somewhat Gentle Man
The Theory of Everything
The Trip
Withnail and I
Hunger
A Clockwork Orange
Gregory's Girl
One Day
Control
The Queen
Dracula
Morvern Callar
Don't Look Now
The Full Monty
The English Patient
Sense and Sensibility
The Spy Who Loved Me
Made in Britain
My Beautiful Laundrette
Man on a Wire
Fish Tank
Weekend
Starter For Ten
Goldfinger
Moonraker

Purposefully missing from the list...

The King's Speech (overrated, historically inaccurate)
Tinker Tailor Solider Spy (snooze-fest)
Harry Potter (um, no!)
Slumdog Millionaire (Wasn't my cup of tea.)
Get Carter (Have not seen it, bon.)
Monty Python's the Meaning of Life (Don't have a great excuse.)
Kes (Have not seen it--yet.)
Sweet Sixteen (Am planning on viewing this one this week.)
Monty Python's Life of Brian (Have not seen it.)
