Rather than give a grand preamble about the greatness of film this year, we’re going to post the favorite films by the Entropy contributing community and leave it at that. This is by no means in any order or ranking and certainly doesn’t cover all the great films made this year.
Also, some of these technically came out before 2014, but didn’t arrive to American shores until this year, which, for us, allows them on the list.
