[391] 25 films to see at the London Film Festival

I have been quiet recently. Why? Well, mainly because the London Film Festival press previews have started, and this year I'm fully accredited. Exciting, yes, but every day for the last week and a half has been spent in the BFI Southbank, catching up on various movies. Some are brilliant, and I'll be writing about them a bit further down the line, once the festival starts.

In the meantime, I wrote up this big preview for Den of Geek, highlighting 25 films from the programme that are worth checking out. Since writing this, a handful of new and impressive films have been added to the bill, including Sofia Coppola's Somewhere, and the new Michael Winterbottom feature The Trip. Consider those as late additions.

For film buffs residing in or around the UK's capital, the back end of October means one thing: the London Film Festival. As always, this year boasts a supreme selection of big films from the world over, even if 2010's line-up is a bit lacking in international premieres.

Anyway, chances are you haven't had a recent holiday to Toronto or the French Riviera, so we've combed through the consistently astounding programme to bring up 25 films that, if you can get your hands on tickets (no mean feat), you should check out.
