Films | Matthew Newlin

birdman 75This was a very good year for cinema, both for the films and the performances that made going to the theater more exciting than it has been in years.


Narrowing down a Top 10 list is never easy in a year like this, so those I’ve included this year are the movies I couldn’t stop talking about and/or forced more than a few friends to see for themselves. The alternates I sadly had to cut out include The One I Love, Guardians of the Galaxy, Calvary, and Borgman. They were all excellent films and deserve to be seen.

Below are the films that made a huge impression on me when I saw them, and stuck with me long after they ended.

  1. Whiplash (Sony Pictures Worldwide)
  2. Citizenfour (Radius-TWC)
  3. Nightcrawler (Open Road Films)
  4. Birdman (Fox Searchlight)
  5. Interstellar (Paramount Pictures)
  6. The LEGO Movie (Warner Brothers)
  7. Locke (Shoebox Films)
  8. Snowpiercer (Radius-TWC)
  9. Only Lovers Left Alive (Sony Pictures Classics)
  10. Starred Up (Fox Searchlight)
