Best Films of 2014

Before we launch into 2015, it’s necessary to deeply reflect upon the past year through the only format that matters: the Top 10 List. You see, in a few days, I’ll be launching into my j-term class about the Cold War through film. In preparation, I’ve compiled my personal list of the best films of 2014.

There’s always a certain injustice in top 10 list making. Films get left off, personal preferences trump artistic triumph, or maybe vice versa. And frankly, I’m no A.O. Scott. There’s a lot of movies I haven’t seen yet, and I am by no means qualified to decide what great cinema is. So I’m just gonna be real transparent about the arbitrary nature of this process. I’m not saying these are the best films of the year, but they are the ones that came to mind when I thought about my favorite movies of the past 12 months.
