We all have our own rules or qualifications for a year-end list and mine are pretty simple, a film must have had a limited release in New York and Los Angeles for consideration. Yes, this qualification leaves out films only having runs at film festivals or foreign titles that have yet to find U.S. distribution within the calendar year. At the time of posting this article I have watched 335 movies in 2014, 140 of which are eligible to be included in this list by the qualifications listed above.
Honorable Mentions: The Missing Picture, The Rover, The Guest, The Grand Budapest Hotel, and Gone Girl
10. The Lunchbox
09. Obvious Child
05. The Babadook
04. The One I Love
That's a wrap on 2014. Thanks for reading and feel free to share your own Top 10 of 2014 in the comment section.
