The 15 Best Films from 2014


Riding the crest of my phantom film awards yesterday, which truly eclipsed the legitimacy of the Oscars, now is the time I name my favorite films from 2014. Regrettably, having a kid, a wife, a full-time job, and a vicious masturbation habit consume most of my waking life, so there are films I regret not seeing. Whiplash, Leviathan, Two Days-One Night, and Mr. Turner are just a handful of films I didn’t see. I know you’re disappointed for me, but don’t worry, I’ll survive. In the meantime, just scan my list and embrace 2014’s greatest cinematic efforts.
