that's some ambitious list, eh? well, I know powell will be "top 10" material (and my personal favorite from him would be "a matter of life and death"). but I would really LOVE if terence davies's brilliant, timeless "distant voices, still lives" (one of me favorite films) made the cut.
Black Narcissus, Great Expectations (1946), A Room with a view, Victim, Pride & Prejudice, Brighton Rock, A Tale of Two Cities (1958)
Nooo! Who cares about British movies? OK Irish and Scottish are OK but English are crap like "All About a Boy", "Love Actually", "Bridget Jones"...
