Adam Frazier’s 30 Favorite Films Of 2014

Top 30 Films of 2014

2014 was a pretty amazing year for cinema. We saw new work by visionary filmmakers like Paul Thomas Anderson, Richard Linklater, David Fincher, Alejandro González Iñárritu, Bennett Miller, and Wes Anderson.

We witnessed incredible performances by Michael Keaton, Scarlett Johansson, Steve Carell, J.K. Simmons, Rosamund Pike, and David Oyelowo. And we were entertained and awe-struck by one of the best slates of summer blockbusters in recent history, including Guardians of the Galaxy, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Edge of Tomorrow.

I saw 100 new releases this year. That’s a pretty low number, actually. To put it into perspective, The New York Times reviewed nearly 900 films in 2013. Usually, I see close to 200 new films a year, but this year I needed a break. Seeing 2-3 new releases a week can be great for a movie-lover, but doing it year after year can lead to burnout and an increase in overall disenchantment.

Luckily, I saw some truly great films that renewed my love for film and kept (most) of the cynicism and negativity buried beneath awe, joy, and optimism. Here are the films that did just that: 30 films that moved, inspired, and entertained me. Here are 30 reasons I love movies.

Now that 2014 is over, we are left with deciding which movies were the best of the year. Contrary to to what the box office says, 2014 was a pretty amazing year in film. But as I look back at the 100 or so films that I have seen in the past year, the following 15 films are the ones that I have seen repeatedly, could not stop talking about, or have had the biggest impact one me. Of course this is a subjective list, as there are plenty of other films that I have and have not seen that are or could be better, but honestly, these 15 left the biggest impact on me. I’ll also throw in a couple of honorable mentions. Hit the jump to check it out.

How ‘Birdman’ Was Filmed To Look Like It Was Shot In One Take (Video)

Birdman Starring Michael Keaton and Edward Norton

At first glance Birdman may just look like another one of those award-bait fanfare films because it is so meta and aware of the state of movies now. The film follows Riggan (Michael Keaton), a movie star whose claim to fame was portraying a superhero called Birdman in three films, but wants to regain the respect of Hollywood and his family by staging a play based on his career of being Birdman. But the way that director Alejandro González Iñárritu constructed the film from scene to scene will look almost as if he shot the film in one single take. Every transition so seamless and carefully planned.

Naturally, the logistics wouldn’t allow the film to be shot in one take. Birdman uses many locations and takes place over the course of a few days; and there is also the fact that Riggan’s heroic consciousness pops up from time to time, so a single take would be impossible. But a new video has surfaced showing how Iñárritu and cinematographer Emmanuel “Chivo” Lubezki made the impossible, possible. Hit the jump to check it out.
