Ken Loach: Ranked

Attempting the impossible here and ranking those films made for cinema by arguably my favourite director (alongside Mike Leigh) the one and only Ken Loach.

To make it slightly easier on myself I have concentrated just on those films Loach released for cinema, rather than the TV productions for The Wednesday Play or Play For Today etc. I have also not included any of Loach's documentary films (either for TV or for cinema) or his short films.

As you can see it's really hard to rank films that are in the main all granted five or four star reviews from me. I imagine it's like choosing a favourite child!
