7. Nebraska

A grizzled stalwart of American cinema, Bruce Dern is reason alone to catch Alexander Payne’s latest. Like the platform boot and the Bee-Gees, he was huge in the ‘70s, snagging an Oscar nomination for Coming Home and dominating The Great Gatsby with sheer Derny presence. That now time-weathered presence will be much in evidence in Payne’s whimsical black-and-white road movie. The Academy won’t need much of an excuse to bookmark his career with a second nomination – possibly against all Gatsby pal Robert Redford for All Is Lost – and by all accounts, he gives them plenty as a cranky retiree who drags his son (Will Forte) on a journey to collect his lottery winnings.

1 Did you guys look into the programme properly?
Your list of 10 films contains 6 films from the list of 18 Galas. There are obver 200 films showing at the LFF yet 60% of your must see list is plucked from less than 10% of the film population...............lazy feature I think. Might I also add that they are all English language films too...............so are non of the foreign language films worth watching then? I am one of the lucky BFI members who managed to get tickets and I haven't booked any of your selections because I decided to look at films where the LFF would likely be the only oppotunity that I will get to see them.

4 No public tickets this year
I was all set refreshing as tickets went on sale and they we're instantly sold out so they can't even have kept seats for the general public this year. I was looking forward to a triple bill on Sunday of the double, under the skin and the zero theorum (the second two of which, how are they not in this list). More

6 Awful adverts
Great Selection, but the adverts between each are just painful. I would have thought that a magazine as prestigious as empire would be able to take a stand against the bane of todays cinema experience. Don't force feed me adverts for "shit we don't need". I'll go elsewhere. More
