Modern British Crime Movies

The British love for social realism comes across in this collection of crime movies from after the year 2000; make sure to check out 'Legend', for a recent biopic of the infamous Kray brothers. Tom Hardy may outshine the movie itself, but that's true for 90% of what he's done!

'Movies Like The Bling Ring': Bad Boys n' Girls

From 'Spring Breakers' to 'City of God' these modern movies justify senior citizens' concerns world over, with their host of morally bankrupt young protagonists dismantling society from the inside out!

'Seriously Tough Nuts': F*cking Nutter Movies

We all know that one guy at the bar that you never, ever say something to; in fact, don't even look at him. Why? Because he's certifiably insane, that's why, and loves a good scrap. This is a list full of such types, including 'Chopper', 'Bronson', and 'Kill the Irishman'.

'Britsters (Brit + Hipsters)': Modern British Indie

The ever-modest British have been quietly churning out quality independent dramas for some time now. Enjoy the very best of them, including recent musical number "God Help the Girl' (with Cassie from Skins!), and critically acclaimed coming-of-age story 'Wild Bill'.

'Movies Like Spring Breakers': Indie Crime Thrillers

Movies in the vein of 'Charlie Countryman': taking classic crime cinema themes and giving them a modern, indie spin. Some films are foreign, some simply under-publicized, but all are guaranteed to give you a fresh appreciation of the genre!

Jack O'Connell Movies

No matter how many fancy-schmancy Angelina Jolie movies he stars in we will always think of Jack O'Connell as rebellious live-wire James Cook, half-litre of cheap vodka tucked inside his Fred Perry jacket. For more Skins reminiscence, check out our 'Skins Alumni' list!

'Brits Get Grit': British Social Realism

Ever since Dickens, the Brits have had a fascination with the social realist aesthetic: unflinching, unromanticized portrayals of working class life. Enjoy the best examples of this gritty genre from 1990 onwards (and check out our 'Kitchen Sink Classics' for the movement's progenitor).
