Great British films to watch

Ongoing project made up of the films I haven't seen or want to re-watch, from four polls of the best British films: the BFI 100, Time Out, Empire (UK film magazine) and Barry Norman (essentially the British Roger Ebert).
The unseen (or partly seen) films were added to this list in rank order from each of those in turn, and the notes say which picture is in which polls as a lot of them overlap.

Letterboxd has given me a bit of a bee in my bonnet about watching multiple films from one director in chronological order. So other films by some of the directors, which I'd been planning to watch anyway, will be fitted in before, between or after…
