Do you recognise British film as a strong force in cinema, or still think Hollywood is unchallenged
The English excel still at the horror-comedies; The World's End, Shaun of the Dead, The Lobster, Mr. Nobody, the British version of Being Human, "You, Me and the Apocalypse".
Because they are lighter on budget, they have to be better at humor and plot twists without going out to the bizarre.
In the case of shows, having usually 6 episodes seems to help keep the plot focused, minimal fluff, just a constant peppering of jokes and humor sprinkled in the fast moving story.
For blockbuster movies, Hollywood wins, though plot suffers as they try to cater to an international audience that says "big explosions, close ups of girls, excellent monsters, don't worry if it makes sense".
Some great points made! I truly agree about British humour writing and the short to the point series lengths is a key to the success of British shows!
Films such as trainspotting and this is England however are key examples, to me of British success
