Edgar Wright Picks His Top Ten Movies of 2014

Check out director Edgar Wright’s best films of the year list over at Esquire. Wright’s not only a great filmmaker, but a cinephile of impeccable taste, and his top ten is really great.

Boyhood

"How could anyone be unmoved by this film? It felt like several lives flashing before my eyes and I left the cinema wondering if I had done everything I could with the last 12 years of my life."


Birdman

"This is one dazzling high-wire act of cinema. For 120 minutes, Birdman floats from comedy to surrealism to high drama to quiet brilliance. I felt so inspired by watching this movie. It reaches for the sky and never comes back down to earth."

Interstellar

"70 mm film projection. IMAX screen two stories high. Sweet-spot seats right in the middle. Hans Zimmer's cathedral of sound filling the theater. Dizzying deep-space drama. Achingly sad emotional rifts. Check. Check. Check. Chris Nolan's most personal movie is also the best argument for seeing films on a giant silver screen."

Nightcrawler

"It's been a year of great crime movies, but Jake Gyllenhaal's Lou Bloom slinks his way to the top without ever blinking his eyes. Surely the decade's creepiest tale of how to succeed in business, this film is a blackly funny, deadly satire on the media creatures who only come out at night in LA."

Edge of Tomorrow

"This had a split personality of titles and taglines (LIVE! DIE! REPEAT! CRUISE! BLUNT!), but in truth it's the smartest movie of the summer. Forget the fact that the current title sounds like a daytime soap and revel instead in the breakneck pace, looping action, and brilliant editing."
