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!

Drew Tobia's jet-black comedy follows a pregnant, socially maladjusted young women named Mona, who lives in a state of squalor with no clue what to do with her life. There's much more to this purposefully off-putting film, but the triumph here is just how much Tobia truly loves his damaged characters. Daringly abrasive, but also profanely hilarious; the biggest surprise is the fragile heart beating underneath all of the toxic dysfunction.
