BFI Readers Pick Top 10 Films of 2014

BFI Readers Pick Top 10 Films of 2014

BFI’s reader-chosen list supplements its annual Sight and Sound critics’ poll, which this year named “Boyhood” the best film of 2014.

The list includes usual highbrow suspects “Under the Skin” at number one, “Ida,” “The Grand Budapest Hotel” and “Two Days, One Night” along with a few surprises including Sundance comedy “Frank” and “Nightcrawler,” which is steadily picking up year-end appreciation. “The Wolf of Wall Street,” a 2013 stateside release that didn’t hit the UK until this year, also landed among readers’ favorites.

Expect to see more of these iconoclastic choices on critics’ lists rather than on lists from, say, the National Board of Review, which marched to the beat of its own drum yesterday by deeming “A Most Violent Year” the Best Picture of the Year. Here’s the BFI reader top 10:

1. “Under the Skin” 
2. “Boyhood”
3. “Ida” 
4. “The Wolf of Wall Street” 
5. “The Grand Budapest Hotel” 
6. “Frank” 
7. “Nightcrawler” 
8. “Horse Money” 
9. “Goodbye To Language” 
10. “Two Days, One Night”
