BOYHOOD Tops Sight & Sound’s 20 Best Films of 2014 List

     November 28, 2014


It’s nearly December, which means awards are a’comin.  The New York Film Critics Circle will kick off the slew of critics group awards next week, but the folks over at the UK-based Sight & Sound have gotten a jump on everyone by announcing their Top 20 today.  Richard Linklater’s groundbreaking drama Boyhood tops the list, and it’s hard to argue with that choice.  The film is a favorite to land a number of Oscar nods, but I’ll be very curious to see which movie(s) the critics groups rally around throughout December.  Coming in second place in the Sight & Sound poll is Jean-Luc Godard’s Goodbye to Language 3D, with Under the Skin landing at #5 and films like Whiplash, Birdman, and the Edward Snowden documentary Citizenfour also making the list.

Check out the full Sight & Sound Top 20 of 2014 after the jump.
