Off to a good start! Looking forward to seeing what else gets represented. I vote for The Third Man and Black Narcissus (or just about any Powell & Pressburger). Toss in some David Lean and Hitchcock.

Love The Wicker Man, one of my all time favorite movies but the Fantastic Mr Fox is really throwing me off.

I think the masked figures are great. I'm sure the figure on the right of the poster is the same figure on the left of this photo. Works for me!

Get Carter and Zulu please :)

I actually have a great idea for a zulu print but not the skills to execute it :(

Thanks guys! There's some great choices above. Here's an interesting debate, what makes a film British? and what makes a film American? It's not been black and white selecting a handful of British films.

Would films like Snatch, Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, and Layer Cake be considered British cinema? I'd love to see prints from those films.
