    Defence of the Realm is my favourite 80s Britfilm .... a cleverly scripted and constructed thriller with great atmosphere and fine performances.

    Excellent political conspiracy thriller from 1984 with superb acting from a great cast including Gabriel Byrne,Greta Scacchi and Denholm Elliot.

    If you liked Edge of Darkness you'll like this.

    An excellent movie and one that deserves to be better known.

    First class film in every way, shame it isn't better known. If you like atmospheric conspiracy thrillers, it can't be beaten.

    Me too! I do like that genre where we identify with the whistle-blower against the power of the Establishment. Though that victory was a pyrrhic one, if I remember.

    Interesting post to list all the titles at sometime.
