You can head over to the Gallery and view the entire list (it's obnoxiously designed for increased page views -- one entry per page), but here's an easy access look at the Top Ten, and I'd be hard pressed to take issue with it (though, I haven't seen My Beautiful Laundrette, Distant Voices, Still Lives or Ratcatcher and I won't admit to being much of a Mike Leigh fan. But hey! Look! Trainspotting!
