With the lines between TV and film continuing to blur, it's only a matter of time until we're awarding Best Narrative Of The Year instead of trying to continue to separate the mediums. And indeed, the esteemed Cahiers Du Cinema aren't making the distinction with their top ten films of 2014.
Bruno Dumont's acclaimed miniseries "P'tit Quinquin" has topped this year's list. And as you might expect, the esteemed mag favors the arthouse and the auteur, over anything studio driven. So that's why you'll see Jean-Luc Godard's "Goodbye To Language," David Cronenberg's "Maps To The Stars," Hong Sang-soo's "Our Sunhi," and Jonathan Glazer's "Under The Skin" on the list. There are some surprises too with Ira Sachs' "Love Is Strange" making cut and same with young gun Xavier Dolan with "Mommy."
Here's the full ten. Debate and discuss below. [Fandor]
