Best Films of 2014

This was the year of the cinematic marathon, as I plunged deep into every filmic nook and cranny I could crawl inside, coming out with a whopping total of 200 films viewed that were released in 2014. Lest you consider me utterly insane (which I probably am), somehow I was able to condense that number down to my 25; a task, ultimately, which feels at least partially irrelevant given how many strong films got left out. Still, I am very proud of the flicks that made the cut. So, without further ado, here are my favorite 25 films of 2014!

Groovy, far out, and probably the closet cinematic equivalent of trying to have a sensible conversation while being stoned out of your gord, Inherent Vice uses the conventions of pulp, noir, and stoner comedy and gives us a narrative-defying plunge down the rabbit hole. Paul Thomas Anderson's adaptation of Thomas Pynchon's novel is hilarious, strange, confusing, and oddly enough, touching as a nostalgic ode to the death of 1960s drug-fueled optimism.
