Open thread: What's your favourite British film?

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.

• If you've seen any films in the past week, good or bad, let us know. You can either leave a comment in the thread below, or tweet your thoughts with the hashtag #gdnreview. We'll pick the best and show them off here once a week.
