Union flags at the ready as we seek out the cream of British cinema. Plus, your pick of the week's best films
This year has been one big union flag-waving, Pimm's swilling, Queen-worshipping, Olympic celebration of Britishness. (With lots of rain.) So what better time to celebrate the best of British film?

Perhaps your idea of a great British film is a true classic, like Lawrence of Arabia or Brief Encounter. You might go for something with a bit of quintessential kitchen-sink grit, like Kes, Fish Tank or Trainspotting. Or maybe you're a sucker for that rom-com where Hugh Grant plays a lovable middle-class buffoon? You know the one (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill, Love Actually, Sense and Sensibility).

Whatever you think, we'd like you to come over a bit patriotic and tell us what your favourite British film is, in the comments section below.

We're also keen to hear about new films you've been watching. Here's what some @guardianfilm followers had to say about movies they'd seen recently:

@gethhuws

Dark Knight Rises - Fantastic end to a breathless trilogy.


@NAmericanScum

TDKR: pretentious and soulless, with half developed ideas and predictable ending. Yes, I know I'm in the minority.


@Queen_Smith

The Dark Knight Rises: beautifully crafted cinema masterpiece. Anne Hathaway shines and Tom Hardy is solid.


@MariaMyhr

The Amazing Spider-Man – fresh, emotional and thrilling, but with more than a fair amount of cheese and logic fail.


@PhDImperio

Just saw #Ted. Laughed to tears. Very funny, very sharp references and very, very wrong!


@Reebeekins

Magic Mike. Superficial.



@MrLukeHarvey

Ice Age 4 - Predictable. Hilarious. Granny steals the show.


• If you've seen any films in the past week, good or bad, let us know. You can either leave a comment in the thread below, or tweet your thoughts with the hashtag #gdnreview. We'll pick the best and show them off here once a week.

#yosoy132 protesters stage siege of Televisa over alleged bias, but excitement of early rallies is being replaced by impatience
Some brought tents and blankets and a few hugged guitars, but by far the most common accessory seen at the 24-hour siege of the broadcasting giant Televisa that began on Thursday were banners accusing the network of trying to "impose" Enrique Peña Nieto as president.
"Televisa: factory of lies," read one held up amid the rows of protesters that faced a wall of police officers around the building. "Weapon of mass manipulation" said another bearing a picture of a television. "Don't let Televisa put you to sleep," a third warned.
Mexico's student movement sprang up 10 weeks ago to thrust the issue of alleged media bias in favour of Peña Nieto to the centre of the presidential campaign.
The candidate won anyway, putting the revamped Party of Institutionalised Revolution (PRI) en route to regaining the power it had held from 1929 to 2000, and the students refocused their energies on rejecting the result of a poll they say was unfair.
But the sense that they are riding a new tide capable of shaking up the political and media establishment has begun to ebb away, and the palpable excitement that infused the early rallies is being replaced by expressions of frustration, anger and impatience.
"The movement started as a breath of fresh air as young people began to wake up," said Fernando Valenzuela, 21, a sociology student, as he prepared to spend the night at the Televisa picket. "Things are getting more radical now because the legitimacy of the institutions is running out and nobody wants to have to live with Peña Nieto as president for the next six years."
They will probably have to do so. Few observers expect the electoral authorities to accept that the evidence presented by the leftwing runner-up, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who alleges vote-buying and dodgy campaign financing as well as media bias, is weighty enough to annul the outcome.
So what next for the students who call themselves #yosoy132? The name, meaning I am 132, is a reference to the number of students who made a YouTube video that first sparked the movement after Televisa downplayed a protest against Peña Nieto at a private university in May. There were 131 of them, so everybody else is now, symbolically, number 132.
Rachel Sieder, an expert in Latin American social movements, said the Mexican students and their social media-fuelled protests constituted a phenomenon somewhere between the Arab Spring and Occupy Wall Street. "It is not likely to transform the political system now, with the recent presidential election reinforcing old-style clientelistic politics," she said. "But it does signal a critical mass of young, soon-to-be professionals who are calling for a fundamental change in the prevailing political and electoral culture."
With the impact of their near weekly marches beginning to wane, the largely middle-class movement has begun seeking a renewed lease of life through alliances with more traditional leftist social movements. Some of the students' most fervent critics celebrate this development as a sign that the movement will soon relegate itself to just another minority protest group with nothing new to offer. "They are throwing away the brand," said the advertising veteran and longtime PRI stalwart Carlos Alazraki.
There are further challenges in the need to juggle tensions between emerging leaders and the principle of consensus in all decision-making, the divergences of focus between students from private and public universities, and the difficulty of not looking like they are at the service of Lopez Obrador's legal challenge.
The Televisa picket was a kind of return to the movement's roots, but this time the network was in no mood to launch the kind of damage limitation exercise that ensured the first wave of protests were covered in detail. Its flagship news show dedicated the first half of its hour-long broadcast to the Olympics and included just a brief transmission of the scene outside its building towards the end of the programme. Televisa has submitted documents to the electoral tribunal backing its claim to have been completely neutral in the election, but it does not tend to answer the students' accusations directly on screen.
Hunched over their smartphones in a Mexico City cafe this month, members of the #yosoy132 media commission alleged they were constantly trying to hold off a "disinformation campaign" against them that diminished their importance and exaggerated their troubles, but stressed they did not need the traditional media to get their message across.

FILE - This Jan. 26, 2012 file photo shows, from left, Prince Jackson, Blanket Jackson and Paris Jackson after a hand and footprint ceremony honoring their father musician Michael Jackson in front of Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles. The executors of Michael Jackson's estate say they are concerned about the welfare of the singer's mother and his three children. In a letter posted on fan sites Tuesday, July 24, executors John Branca and John McClain says they are doing what they can to protect them from “undue influences, bullying, greed, and other unfortunate circumstances.” The letter came hours after sheriff's deputies responded for a family disturbance at the hilltop home where Katherine Jackson and her three grandchildren live. No arrests were made, but there is an active battery investigation. Katherine Jackson was reported missing over the weekend, but is with relatives in Arizona.

AMMAN (Reuters) - The flamboyant scion of a military family that has been a pillar of the Syrian establishment is flirting with the idea of playing a major role in the revolt, but a history of service to the Assad dynasty and lack of domestic support are not on his side. Brigadier General Manaf Tlas, one of the most senior defectors from President Bashar al-Assad's rule, took a step on the international stage on Thursday by publicly meeting the foreign minister of Turkey, Syria's northern neighbor which is trying to shape a post-Assad leadership. ...

LONDON/ISTANBUL (Reuters) - - Turkey may be some way from acting on Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan's threat to strike Kurdish separatists in Syria, but week by week it finds itself sucked ever further into its neighbor's worsening war. The shooting down of a Turkish reconnaissance jet last month was seen by many as a turning point, prompting Ankara to join Saudi Arabia at Qatar in semi-covert support for the Free Syrian Army fighting against President Bashar al-Assad. ...

Search giant admits it has not deleted all of data it secretly collected from internet users around the UK
Google is facing a fresh privacy blunder after it admitted it has not deleted all of the private data, including emails and passwords, it secretly collected from internet users around the UK.

The search giant was ordered in December 2010 to delete the private information hoovered up by its Street View cars from open Wi-Fi networks.

But on Friday Google told the Information Commissioner's Office "human error" prevented it from erasing the data, which could include the emails and passwords of millions of Britons.

Google admitted in May 2010 its Street View cars had "mistakenly" collected private information as they photographed homes and landmarks around the world.

It is not known exactly what private information was taken in the UK, but regulators in the US found traces of medical records and web browsing history among the so-called "payload" data.

The news Google has not purged all of the data taken from UK users 19 months after it was instructed to do so will cause further embarrassment for the company.

On Friday, the ICO said the retention of the data appears to be a breach of the undertaking signed by Google in December 2010.

A spokesman for the ICO said it will now conduct a "forensic analysis" of the data, meaning Google could be fined up to £500,000 if the material is found to be in breach of the Data Protection Act. The company will be one of the first to have breached an undertaking by the ICO if the data is found to be in breach of the DPA.

The ICO said in a statement: "The ICO is clear that this information should never have been collected in the first place and the company's failure to secure its deletion as promised is cause for concern."

Google's global privacy counsel, Peter Fleischer, apologised for the error in a letter to the ICO on Friday. Google declined to comment beyond the letter, which was published on the ICO website.

The technology company is already being investigated by the ICO over claims it orchestrated a cover-up of the data collection in 2010.
