Favorite Movies Watched for the First Time in 2014

Prior to releasing my top movies of 2014, I'd like to share some other favorite movies I've seen this year. At this point it's more of acknowledging releases I've missed in 2013, mostly because they came out here the following year. There are releases from various year that make the list for different reasons. The release year I follow when I make these lists are from Letterboxd, so a movie like Begin Again (widely released in 2014, but lists 2013 as the official release year) would make this list instead.

  1. This is a great, and diverse, list of films! Some real gems here :-D

    1. I still have to work on the years though, most of these fall on 2000's, so hopefully I get to see more from the 80's, 70's and 60's.

    1. All these films make the list due to one reason or another!
