10 Great British Films Made by Non-British Directors
"There are many other reasons that non-British directors choose to shoot in the Isles of Britain. Sometimes they are anglophiles who admire the deep history and culture; sometimes they are critics who wish to scrutinise that very same history and culture; sometimes they are just fascinated by the differences and peculiarities. Some venture over only for their cinematic escapades, such as Michaelangelo Antonioni, whereas others choose to move permanently to live and work, as Stanley Kubrick famously did. For whatever reason foreign filmmakers choose to film in Britain, they provide an interesting outsider's eye to a nation that is usually defined by the stories and history it has written about itself."
