"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.
#342-369: "Not reviewed" (since they were not available at the time of writing).

Deciding that Londoners should have the opportunity to view a film masterpiece approximately every day during the course of the year, BFI film archivist David Meeker approached the board of directors at the BFI in 1982 with his idea of compiling a list of 360 of the world’s cinema masterpieces, collect brand new, state-of-the-art prints of each film and issue a companion book for each movie. This list of films, referred to as the 360 Classic Feature Films project, was published in Sight and Sound's June 1998 issue.
All the nominees and winners for every film nominated for a BAFTA in the Best British Film category and its equivalents. This category was awarded from 1948-1968, after which it was dropped and reintroduced in 1993 as the "Alexander Korda Award for Best British Film". It was renamed "Outstanding British Film" in 2010.
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)
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): http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2316963/
Edit: I've now added the latter film to iCM and to this list.
As part of the Commission Us strand of our Film Season, you asked for a library of the best children's films. Here's our top 50, plus Michael Hann's personal choices, where you can also add your own.
Note: List appears to be alphabetical, but I'm not sure why the first two are listed as such in the source.
From the book published in 2008 and edited by Sarah Barrow and John White.
(There are 51 titles because "Rescued by Rover" and "The '?' Motorist" are grouped together on the original list.)
Radio Times's resident film critic Barry Norman's 49 favourite British films (Feb '13), plus reader selected 50th.
Not in any particular order. The 50th film was chosen to be Slumdog Millionaire.
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.
It has come to my attention that there is not a directorial list of Fisher's filmography. I am not a huge fan (as of yet I have only seen The Curse of Frankenstein) but I intend to see a great deal of his films in the upcoming weeks in chronological order.

"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)
The Moët British Independent Film Awards were established in 1998 by Elliot Grove, founder the Raindance Film Festival.
This list includes the movies that won the award for the Best Foreign Independent Film in English Language (1998-2002), Best Foreign Independent Film in a Foreign Language (1998-2002), Best Foreign Independent Film (2003-2014) or Best International Independent Film (2015-today).
Kipling was an English short-story writer, poet, and novelist chiefly remembered for his celebration of British imperialism, his tales and poems of British soldiers in India, and his tales for children. In 1907 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, making him the first English-language writer to receive the prize, and to date he remains its youngest recipient. Below is a list of films based on his work, though some rather loosely.
The Observer Film Quarterly polled more than 60 filmmakers and critics - including Edgar Wright, Ben Kingsley and Peter Morgan - to name their top 10 British films released since 1984. The results were combined to create a listing of the top 25 British Films Released in the last 25 years.
