Clay Bloodworth’s Top 10 Films of 2014: 

  1. Obvious Child – A funny-because-it’s-true type of comedy that overflows with charm. Jenny Slate is funny and heartbreaking all at once. (Available on DVD)
  1. A Most Wanted Man – A riveting, slow-burn thriller featuring an exceptional performance from Philip Seymour Hoffman. Anton Corbijn is a director to watch. (Available on DVD)
  1. Mistaken for Strangers – A surprisingly hilarious documentary that came out of nowhere. Touches on themes of family and brotherhood perfectly. (Available On Demand)
  1. Life Itself – A loving and heartfelt portrait of film critic Roger Ebert. Necessary viewing for any film-lover. (Available On Demand)
  1. Nightcrawler – I cannot recommend this enough. Jake Gyllenhaal is outstanding as the sleazy crime reporter Lou Bloom. (In Theaters)
  1. The Rover – A futuristic drama set in the desolate Australian outback. An extremely well-acted and photographed film that had me on the edge of my seat until the final frame. (Available on DVD)
  1. The One I Love – An inventive relationship movie that subtly dips into science fiction. Mark Duplass and Elisabeth Moss are a remarkable duo. (Available on DVD & Netflix)
  1. Happy Christmas – The epitome of a great independent film. Struck a special emotional cord with me unlike anything I’ve seen this year. (Available on DVD and Netflix)
  1. Gone Girl – Brilliantly directed by David Fincher, this will undoubtedly stand the test of time. A nearly flawless motion picture. (In Theaters)
  1. Citizenfour – The most important film you will see all year, possibly ever. Sends chills down my neck the more I think about it. (In Theaters)
