Movie Marathon: British Films (1)

(Originally posted on September 21st, 14:48)

For quite some time I have been planning to do a movie marathon that only consists of present day British films. When I say present day that means from year 1990 onwards. With my growing collection of DVD and my special fondness for the English accent - the titles of Brit films in my very own cinema library seems to have increased in number this past year. I have become accustomed - like a family - to British actors, film directors and writers, that in some way, their works have become a constant inspiration in my life through and through.

Last Saturday, being my rest day and all, I've pushed through with my own Brit film fest in our living room and have selected these 6 fine films for the whole date. I have yet to include other titles, but with the luxury of time ain't on my side - I have come to the conclusion that I'll be making 'series 2' next time, as there are so many films to see, but so little time.
