Fyc: Josh Brolin in "Inherent Vice" for Best Supporting Actor

10 hours ago | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

 

And so we come to the end of our individually chosen FYCs. Amir, our team coordinator, and Nathaniel (c'est moi, your immortal host) asked the team to each choose a personal favorite longshot from one specific category (no repeated films allowed). Here's the final entry in the series, a performance I really love in a film I really don't because it's important to remember during awards season when the same films seem to be nominated for everything solely because people like the movie, that individual elements are different than the big picture.

Josh Brolin in Inherent Vice.

It wasn't just the eternal sunshine of California or the vast vistas of desert land and salt water. It wasn't even really the hazy hash-filled air that P.T. Anderson's Pynchonian troupe of criminals were breathing. But I was parched and hungry the whole time I was watching Inherent Vice. I needed a »

Justin Chang’s Top 10 Films of 2014

16 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Assembling a year-end top-10 list has always been a personal, even self-indulgent, ritual, a way of disguising a whimsical ranking of favorites as a carefully curated declaration of personal taste. At the risk of making things even more solipsistic than usual, let me begin by noting that the fraught relationship between artists and critics provided 2014 with one of its most compelling movie themes, with critics themselves — food critics, art critics, theater critics and, yes, film critics — figuring among the year’s most favored characters. And by favored, of course, I mean mocked, loathed and misunderstood at every turn.

In one of the most talked-about scenes in Alejandro G. Inarritu’s virtuoso backstage farce “Birdman,” a washed-up movie star named Riggan Thomson (Michael Keaton) comes face to face with a notoriously nasty New York Times theater critic, Tabitha Dickinson (Lindsay Duncan), who calmly informs him that she’s going to eviscerate his new Broadway play, »

Marion Cotillard Wins -- Twice -- in Our 2014 Film Critics' Poll

16 December 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

What kind of circle is time again? A year after blowing the doors off our annual critics’ poll, golden boy Matthew McConaughey won just a single vote for his turn in the loudest movie of the year, Christopher Nolan’s tears-in-space effort Interstellar, which has tied with the unprescient Transcendence as 2014’s worst film. (Transcendence dreamed that Johnny Depp’s character would take over every screen in the world — that didn’t happen.) But his margin of victory lives on, this year in the form of Marion Cotillard, who wins best actress twice: first for the Dardenne brothers’ vote-gathering drama Two Days, One Night, then besting second-place Scarlett Johansson (Under the Skin) with her turn in Ja »

Bj Colangelo’s Top 15 Horror Movies of 2014

16 December 2014 8:11 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

We’re only half a month away from 2015, and it’s time to look back on the year, jump on our soap boxes, and crank out our “Best of the Year” lists.  2014 may have been a weak year for theatrical horror films, but the independent circuit was booming. I saw films in 2014 that have become lifetime favorites, and had some of the most fun watching films that I’ve had in a long time.  As always, this is my *~*~opinion*~* on the fifteen best horror films of 2014.

Honorable Mentions: The Purge: Anarchy, The Cemetery, Oculus, and Life After Beth.

15) Nightbreed: Director’S Cut

Admittedly, this is sort of a cheat.  If you follow me on twitter or Instagram, you’d know that thanks to my wonderful man-candy, my house is a proverbial shrine to Clive Barker’s Nightbreed.  Foreign posters, original artwork, old theatre advertisements, figurines, the film on »

Ellar Coltrane in Boyhood

Richard Linklater's Boyhood has won another awards season victory, this time coming top in the Criticwire end of year poll, where it beat off stiff competition from existential Scottish science fiction film Under The Skin and Wes Anderson romp The Grand Budapest Hotel.
