Instead of having to wait for the international award season in early 2015 to consolidate the best flicks of 2014, I’ve decided to compile a list of the films reviewed on Graffiti with Punctuation, that have appeared within the calendar year that have received a [rating=5] rating. We’ll most definitely continue to add to this prestigious list as we dive headlong into the awards season, or as new reviews for the below films are published. However, in no particular order, are the films this year that deserve celebration and adoration.
Now there are several films that have touched (not in that way you creep) our critical collective and received multiple [rating=5] ratings. These are quite simply the ‘must sees’ for 2014.
What have we missed? Are there any you disagree with? Please let us know in the comments.
