Hop on the night bus, ladykillers; it’s time to blow-up the block. From Cherry Lane to Crouch End, Piccadilly to Pimlico, in beautiful laundrettes and the places where lovers rock, snatch a moment to list the ten best London-set films. Which great capers significantly featuring The Old Smoke are you and your passionate friends truly, madly, deeply in love with? Whether it’s a long, good Friday or your last night in Soho, the phantom thread that ties these films together must be the city itself. Please stand back from the sliding doors and remember: I don’t do nothing for no one for nothing.
