Favorite New Movies in Theaters, 2014

1. Boyhood (Richard Linklater)
2. Under the Skin (Jonathan Glazer)
3. Citizenfour (Laura Poitras)

Keith Uhlich’s short review of The Duke of Burgundy reads “This ended before I was ready. And grew in my mind as a result.” I would say the same about these three.

4. The Grand Budapest Hotel (Wes Anderson)
5. Only Lovers Left Alive (Jim Jarmusch)
6. Inside Llewyn Davis (Coen Bros.)

Three great works by longtime favorite filmmakers.

7. Interstellar (Christopher Nolan)
8. Gone Girl (David Fincher)
9. The Wolf of Wall Street (Martin Scorsese)

Three big multiplex movies by major directors.

10. The Boxtrolls (Laika)

And one bit of fun.


Ten’s not enough – here are the other great movies I watched:

11. Dear White People (Justin Simien)
12. Nymphomaniac (Lars Von Trier)
13. Natan (David Cairns & Paul Duane)
14. Guardians of the Galaxy (James Gunn)
15. The Past (Asghar Farhadi)
16. Birdman (Alejandro González Iñárritu)
17. The Wind Rises (Hayao Miyazaki)
18. Ida (Pawel Pawlikowski)
