...and they keep on coming. It seems the holiday break has fuelled numerous year-end, best-of lists (check the running tally here) and now the always entertaining John Waters has weighed in with his typically far left-of-center selections.
Leading the way on the filmmakers' 10 Best Films Of 2014 is David Cronenberg's Hollywood satire, "Maps To The Stars." And his description of it, no matter where you stand on the movie, is perfect: “Hilariously funny and, dare I say it, yes, pernicious. I love this film more than I love my own mustache.” Awesome.
Elsewhere his choices veer from forgotten indies like "Charlie Victor Romeo," entries from fellow provocateurs like Lars von Trier's two-volume "Nymphomaniac" to acclaimed foreign films "Gloria" and Bruno Dumont's "L'il Quinquin." So, a little something for everyone. Check out the full list below. [Artforum]
