Sight & Sound’s Top 10 Movies of 2014: ‘Boyhood,’ ‘Goodbye to Language’ and ‘Grand Budapest’

Sight & Sound's Top 10 Movies of 2014: 'Boyhood,' 'Goodbye to Language' and 'Grand Budapest'

Sight & Sound release the results of its annual poll this morning, derived from the votes of 50 critics. Their top 20 starts off with “Boyhood,” which will undoubtedly prove to be a very familiar occurrence as the lists and awards pile up through the rest of the year, but immediately swerves into less well-trod territory, following Richard Linklater’s decade-spanning opus with the latest movies from Jean-Luc Godard, Pedro Costa and Andrei Zvyagintsev. The list, which includes ties at third, eighth, eleventh, sixteenth and eighteenth places, is based on U.K. release, so it includes movies like “The Wolf of Wall Street” and “The Wind Rises” that were 2013 releases in the U.S., and some, like “The Tribe,” “Jauja,” and “The Duke of Burgundy,” that won’t been seen in the States until 2015 — and omits some, like “Selma,” that won’t be out overseas until next year. The Top 20, embellished with excerpts from the movies’ initial reviews, is all that’s up right now, but there will be more in the days and weeks to come.
