Watch: 7-Minute Video Counts Down The 26 Best Films Of Decade So Far (2010-2014)

Just as one list season is ending with 2014 coverage wrapping up in early January, a different kind of list season will begin. It’s 2015, which means we have a decade and a half of movies to look back on from the start of the millenium. But the folks at Fandor have taken a different approach, asking 290 critics and movie lovers to pick the best films from 2010-2014. If anything, it shows there was a lot to be happy about over the past five years.

The list of twenty-six films shown below, filling twenty-four slots (there were a couple of ties), highlights a tremendous crop of movies from filmmakers like the Coen Brothers, Terrence Malick, Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, Spike Jonze, Harmony Korine and Lars von Trier. But it’s not just the well known auteurs getting shout outs —we’re super pleased to see the lovely “Tabu” crack the list, and it seems Kenneth Lonergan‘s “Margaret” has lingered in the minds of many after its half-hearted release in theaters. And we’ll be curious to see how 2014 movies like “Under The Skin,” “The Immigrant” and “Leviathan” rank in another five years.

Check out the list of top 26 below and get the full vote count right here. And then watch the seven-minute countdown reel.
