The 10 best British movies of 2007 assert that Hollywood, CA is not the only place where excellent cinema is being produced. Let's have a look at a few of the finer British films released in 2007.
"This Is England" - This is a scary story about the sway of skinheads during tough economic times. It'l break your heart to see what happens when a 12-year old boy joins one of these gangs. It is a particularly British film, although we all know racism is a universal evil.
"Sleuth"-- This film stars Michael Caine and Jude Law. It was directed by Kenneth Branagh, and was based on Harold Pinter's screenplay. It's also a British mystery film, as only the Britsh can make.
"Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" - This is the fifth Harry Potter film in the franchise. In this one, Harry Potter, along with his cousin Dudly Dursley, is confronted by Dementors.
"I Want Candy" - This British comedy tells the story of a movie gone all wrong. When a group of film students try to make a feature film, they end up having to rewrite it into a porno.
"Hot Fuzz" - This film was created by the same folks that brought us "Shaun of the Dead". This is all about British police work. Only in this case, it's looked at from a very silly perspective.
"Control" - The group Joy Division didn't have much commercial success outside of England. But this band had a big influence on many other groups. This film tells the story of the singer, Ian Curtis, who committed suicide before the act could ever make it big.
"Becoming Jane" - There were/are few more British authors than Jane Austin. In this film, the writer's early life is portrayed. It explains just how Jane became the Jane we know and love -- through her work -- today.
"Atonement" - This moving story was nominated for many awards, including the nomination for best picture at the Oscars. It stars Keira Knightly, and includes a significant role by Vanessa Redgrave.
"28 Weeks Later" - Do you like zombie films? If so, you'll likely enjoy "28 Weeks Later". This one is a sequel to "28 Days Later". The living dead live on, especially through film.
"Dangerous Parking" - This is the story of an indie film director with a drug and alcohol problem? But wait. Isn't that the story of every Hollywood type? Well, not exactly. Nevertheless, this is a fine movie.
