I'm Irish. :D
Haven't seen most of these, but I've heard of them.
Adam and Paul is great, but depressing as hell. Once is great. Love the soundtrack.
Garage is okay. We went to see it because a friend of mine starred in it.
Seen bits if Hunger, and The Wind That Shakes the Barley.

Is it just me, or are pretty much all these films terribly depressing?

@JoeyLostDharma Haha, ya to be fair looking back on these films they are mostly depressing. But there are some gems in here in terms of inspiration and some damn fine comedy:

You simply have to watch Michael Collins & The General (if for no other reason to feel a bit more proud to be Irish 0 plus The General is quiet funny as well) ;)

But Intermission, Inside I'm Dancing(Rory O'Shea Was Here) War of the Buttons & Man About Dog are simply enjoyable and very humorous pieces of film-making.

So I hope a bit more time spent viewing the aforementioned titles will at least make you laugh, if nothing else, because God know's we need it right now in the country.

Ken Loach is not Irish...

I'm not really sure if it is accurate to call one of his movies an "Irish" movie only because it deals with Ireland.

Same with Joel Schumacher...

I'm French and they do the same with French movies. As soon as it takes place in France, they label it as a "French" movie when there is only the setting which is French... I hope I make sense...

The best you could do is change the title of your list with something like "Irish themed movies". What do you think ?

@johanlefourbe I see the point your making but in response to it I would still class these as the best in Irish "film-making", that is not necessarily to say that it is a list entirely made up of films directed by Irish directors but I think you'll agree while a director is a key figure there are many more factors to take into account:

Such as the fact that Ken Loach's film is based entirely upon Irish history, set in Ireland, shot in Ireland(some scenes having even been shot in my own home town) with some of Ireland's most talented home grown actors such as Cillian Murphy, Liam Cunningham & Paraic Delaney.

Also Joel Schumacher's film "Veronica Guerin" is very much classed as Irish film-making having been shot in Ireland, funded in part by the Irish Film Board with many Irish people having been a part of it's production.

So while I can appreciate your argument I believe I have given adequate reason why the title is appropriate.

Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. :)

Allright, for Ken Loach, you win but 'Veronica Guerin', it is an American production with an American producer (Jerry Bruckheimer), and Cate Blanchett (the lead actress) and Joel Shumacher (the director) are nothing Irish. Still an Irish movie in your opinion or should I check the guy who wrought the scenario as well ?
