thanks for the suggestion! :)
Thats a good list. I'm not so sure about Mr Leigh's film but the Ben Rivers I would really like to see, along with his recent Two Years at Sea. If not seen already my film suggestion is Andrew Kotting's Louyre: This Our Still Life (2011).
nice list! surprised at the omission of Fish Tank and Red Road, both by Andrea Arnold. also, Lynne Ramsay's films Ratcatcher, Morvern Callar and We Need to Talk About Kevin would be appropriate. Then there are Pawel Pawlikowski's films Last Resort and My Summer of Love. didn't mean to diminish... cheers!
Very contemporary! A pity Sleep Furiously not here then, but beautiful images you've picked- that one from Archipelago reminds me of Tarkovsky's Sacrifice
Some great films listed Unrelated, Better Things, and Sommes Town my favourites. Some suggestions Great Ectasy Of Robert Carmichael and Clay's much better film Soi Cowboy (British but set in Thailand), Brothers of the Head, Greek Pete, and Saxon. They might not be masterpieces but definately show the immense variety currently in British cinema.
