Time Out, publishers of the weekly listings magazine and producers of the annual Time Out Film Guide have released a list of The 100 best British films Like The BFI 100,the Time Out countdown was complied by soliciting the opinions of a distinguished panel of cinematic acolytes, including film directors Richard Ayoade, Alfonso Cuarón and Wes Anderson as well as big screen actors including Four Lions Riz Ahmed and Made in Dagenham's Sally Hawkins
It's a strong list, full of hidden gems that present a compelling snapshot of what British cinema is capable of
As for absentees, I would make a case for Carol Reed's powerful 1947 film noir Odd Man Out
A film often overshadowed by Reed's more renowned 'Citizen Kane of British Film' The Third Man, which came second in the rankings, itself was pipped at the post by Nicolas Roeg's superb supernatural thriller Don't Look Now which, though often revered has never before been exposed to this level of universal endorsement
