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!

Ben Wheatley's mid-17th century English Civil War film brings to mind a bizarre mixture of Stanley Kubrick, Monty Python and The Wicker Man; but more than anything, this insane free-for-all plunges us deep into psychedelic hell and then back again. Surreal, dreamlike, funny, and nasty as hell; A Field in England is independent cinema at it's most bracing. A work of mad genius.
