Union flags at the ready as we seek out the cream of British cinema. Plus, your pick of the week's best films
This year has been one big union flag-waving, Pimm's swilling, Queen-worshipping, Olympic celebration of Britishness. (With lots of rain.) So what better time to celebrate the best of British film?
Perhaps your idea of a great British film is a true classic, like Lawrence of Arabia or Brief Encounter. You might go for something with a bit of quintessential kitchen-sink grit, like Kes, Fish Tank or Trainspotting. Or maybe you're a sucker for that rom-com where Hugh Grant plays a lovable middle-class buffoon? You know the one (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill, Love Actually, Sense and Sensibility).
Whatever you think, we'd like you to come over a bit patriotic and tell us what your favourite British film is, in the comments section below.
We're also keen to hear about new films you've been watching. Here's what some @guardianfilm followers had to say about movies they'd seen recently:
Dark Knight Rises - Fantastic end to a breathless trilogy.
TDKR: pretentious and soulless, with half developed ideas and predictable ending. Yes, I know I'm in the minority.
The Dark Knight Rises: beautifully crafted cinema masterpiece. Anne Hathaway shines and Tom Hardy is solid.
The Amazing Spider-Man – fresh, emotional and thrilling, but with more than a fair amount of cheese and logic fail.
Just saw #Ted. Laughed to tears. Very funny, very sharp references and very, very wrong!
Magic Mike. Superficial.
Ice Age 4 - Predictable. Hilarious. Granny steals the show.
