[tps_title]Gabrielle Bondi’s Top 10 Movies of 2014:[/tps_title]
- Boyhood – Yup, this movie still reigns as my favorite film from 2014. It’s not just that it took 12 years to make. It’s just a great film that captures those key moments in life, big and small. It’s one of the most intimate “epics” I’ve ever seen.
- Gone Girl – Goddamn, Amazing Amy. Fincher brings to life an unforgettably sinister character with Gone Girl. Rosamund Pike is a revelation.
- Obvious Child – This movie is one of the best films about women… ever. A sweet romantic comedy that is filled with authenticity and real situations. Thank you, Jenny Slate and Gillian Robespierre, for giving young women a film that we can actually relate to.
- The Grand Budapest Hotel – Wes Anderson does it again with his trademark filmmaking and insanely talented cast.
- Birdman – All bow down to Alejandro González Iñárritu. He managed to do everything, all at once, in such a stunning and spectacular fashion.
- Interstellar – Christopher Nolan blew my mind with this ambitious and spiritual space thriller.
- Still Alice – Julianne Moore gives a heartbreaking performance in this small, but powerful film. I wasn’t expecting it to stay with me like it did.
- Snowpiercer – One of the best dystopian thrillers to come out in years, Snowpiercer is audacious and thought-provoking.
- The Imitation Game – A moving film with great performances, especially from Benedict Cumberbatch.
- Guardians of the Galaxy – The most fun I’ve had at a movie all year.
Honorable Mentions: Pride, The Guest, Whiplash, and Life Itself
