The Top Ten Films of 2014 (rough draft): Of course, we went with "Boyhood"
This was an exceptional year for film in every capacity.
For those of you new to this blog, I always go with an image referring to something about the film rather than an image of the film itself.
We are also using the word 'Rough Draft' in the title as a joke, everyone feels the urge to change these lists when they have seen more films from the year of release (here in the United States).
Here is the list:
1) Boyhood (dir. Richard Linklater, image #1 is of the 1969 children's show "H.R. Pufnstuf)
2) Gone Girl (dir. David Fincher, the middle image is the universal symbol for women)
3) Birdman (dir. Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, the bottom image is of the early anime cartoon "Battle of the Planets")
4) The Grand Hotel Budapest (dir: Wes Anderson)
5) Life Itself (documentary. dir: Steve James. Will air on CNN in January)
6) The Unknown Known (doc. dir: Errol Morris)
7) Blue Ruin (dir: Jeremy Sauhier)
8) Begin Again (dir: John Carney)
9) Interstellar (dir: Christopher Nolan)
10) "A Most Wanted Man" (dir: Anton Corbijn)
Worst Movie of the Year: "Wrong" (appropriately titled, dir: Quentin Dupieux)
Most Underrated: "The Skeleton Twins"
Most Overrated: "Snowpiercer"
Most Disappointing: "Only Lovers Left Alive"
A Most Impressive Debut: "A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night"
Most Interesting Mediocre Movie: "Life After Beth"
