Best of British

Yesterday's Observer Film Magazine polled 60 "experts" to find the 25 Best British Films Of The Last 25 Years and Trainspotting came out number one. No surprise there, then. Shame the main paper put a photo of Ewan McGregor's Renton on the front to advertise it, thereby spoiling any potential anticipation the reader might have had...

Here's the top ten

1) Trainspotting (Dir. Danny Boyle, 1996)

2) Withnail & I (Dir. Bruce Robinson, 1987)

3) Secrets & Lies (Dir. Mike Leigh, 1996)

4) Distant Voices Still Lives (Dir. Terence Davies, 1988)

5) My Beautiful Laundrette (Dir. Stephen Frears, 1985)

6) Nil By Mouth (Dir. Gary Oldman, 1997)

7) Sexy Beast (Dir. Jonathan Glazer, 2000)

8) Ratcatcher (Dir. Lynne Ramsay, 1999)

9) Slumdog Millionaire (Dir. Danny Boyle, 2008)

10) Four Weddings And A Funeral (Dir. Mike Newell, 1994)
