2014 Lists & Awards

[Note: We classify films by their theatrical release anywhere in the world, so certain films we saw in 2014 (like “Clouds of Sils Maria” or “Girlhood”) are classed as 2014, because they were released in their home countries in that year. A festival screening does not count as a theatrical release.]
