50 Favorite New-to-Me Films Seen in 2014


Here are the 50 films not released in 2014 that I consider my favorites. Films are ordered chronologically; not ranked. Although, the ones I’d pick as my top ten are bolded. My first-time viewings are very heavily dictated by the ongoing Top Ten By Year project I started in 2013. During 2014 I finished 1965 and completed 1943, 1992, and 1958.
