Top Ten Favorite British Films

Just wondering what films produced by the UK everyone likes. My Top Ten would be:
10. My Name is Joe (Ken Loach)
9. Children of Men (Alfonson Cauron)
8.28 Days Later (Danny Boyle)
7. Hot Fuzz (Edgar Wright)
6. Withnail and I (Bruce Robinson)
5. The Ladykillers (Alexander Mackendrick)
4. A Clockwork Orange (Stanley Kubrick, although it was technically a British and American co production)
3. Life of Brian (Terry Jones)
2. Shaun of the Dead (Edgar Wright)
1. The Third Man (Carol Reed)
Share yours!

Was Sunshine considered a "british flick" though? I know Cillian Murphy was the lead and it was directed by Boyle.... But I don't think "Brit Flick" when I watch Sunshine really.

And how could I forget Snatch! One of my favourites!

Witchfinder General is a favourite. Oliver Twist, by David Lean is near perfect. Macbeth, by Polanski, is easily in my top ten of all time from world-wide cinema -- albeit its a British-American film, so possibly not relevant to this thread. IDK about the rest, there are so many to choose from.
