BFI London Film Festival

Bearing in mind the state of Leicester Square right now (it's more of a construction site), and the cuts inflicted on British film in the past year, you could forgive the country's biggest film festival for toning things down a bit this year – except it hasn't. There's as much here as there ever was, from the rest of the world and, reassuringly, from Britain. It's heartening to see so many of our cherished auteurs back in action: Terence Davies (The Deep Blue Sea, which closes the festival); Andrea Arnold (her earthy take on Wuthering Heights); Michael Winterbottom (Trishna); Lynne Ramsay (We Need To Talk About Kevin), and Steve McQueen (Shame). And there are plenty here who could join their ranks, from as-yet-unknowns in the New British Cinema section to first-time directors Dexter Fletcher (Wild Bill) and Ralph Fiennes (Coriolanus).
