The Best Films of 2014… So Far


Halfway there.

It’s been a fantastic year so far; we’ve covered profound ontological territory in Her, revelled in the Coen brother’s best film in years with Inside Llewyn Davis, and  travelled through time both ingeniously (Edge of Tomorrow) and poetically (Boyhood) – and with Frank and 22 Jump Street, laughed our arses off along the way. Things are looking good for the end-of-year list – expect fireworks and themed cakes – but we’re yet to see if these 365 days can equal the fine year for movies that was 2013.

This list is in no particular order, but will give you a very good feel for the landscape of cinema right now; annoyingly, we have another six months to go – we still haven’t seen the soon-to-be released Dawn of the Planet of the Apes or Norte, The End of History, while the best of the year may still be to come in the form of Interstellar. Another note is that these are all by UK release date (Inside Llewyn Davis counts as a 2014 film, for instance, despite its 2013 release in the US. Also, a handful of the films here haven’t been shown in UK cinemas yet, but do have a 2014 release date at the time of writing).

Here’s to the rest of the year. May it be equally as excellent.

The Good…

The Great…

… and the Best
