May sound like an odd choice but I'd suggest Amistad. If only for the people who were making an historic stand against slavery both in America and Britain. Although the Spanish don't come out of that film particularly well.


Indeed, its not a great film but the final scene where the British Navy blow up the slave fortress did make me punch the air and go "f**k yeah!".

And yes the Spanish are total cunts in that film.

The Spanish were a bit of massive cunts during that age.

Oh yeah, patriotic films from Spain...

And doesn't give any other nods to the dreadful film its title appears to allude to.

Haven't seen it in years but I never remember taking to that film the way other people have.

Not including documentaries.

The Proud Valley because it isnít How GreenÖ

Rhosyn a Rhith/Coming Up Roses (1986) (on YouTube and Bill Paterson turns up.)

On the Black Hill (1987) / A Child's Christmas in Wales (1987)

Hedd Wyn (1992) THIS IS THE ONE EVERYONE SHOULD WATCH.

Maybe Branwen (1995) but Iím not a huge fan of it.

Darklands (1997)

I personally hate Twin Town and other such shit.

Where is his Scottish patriotism though? They call him an English prick and he does not correct him.

He does punch him out though. And look down at him disdainfully.
