An official iCheckMovies list.

The best 100 British films were chosen by 1,000 people from the UK's film industry, including producers, directors, writers, actors, technicians, academics, exhibitors, distributors, executives and critics. The final selection spans seven decades and accommodates the work of 70 film directors. Unsurprisingly, literary adaptations feature strongly - ranging from Shakespeare and Dickens to Roddy Doyle and Irvine Welsh - and the highbrow mixes easily with the low.
