Watching this year’s films

3 12 2014

I’ve been catching up on some of this year’s films recently in an attempt to do a best-of list at the end of the year. I wanted to do one last year but I had no way of tracking which films were included in the year; I rate every film I watch on imdb, which records my rating, but it doesn’t tell me when I rated the film. This year, though, I believe the first film I saw in theatres was Stranger at the Lake, so I’m going to count that and go from there.

Tonight, I caught Deux Jours, Une Nuit (Two Days, One Night), Belgium’s official entry to the upcoming Academy Awards. I’m not going to post an entire review for it (I have a bit of a headache at the moment), but it was good. Marion Cotillard certainly can act.

I think I’ve missed out on a lot of international films (mostly because, apart from Slant Magazine’s reviews, I don’t really know what’s out there that’s good), but I’ve been seen a few year-end lists already that have some interesting-looking international films.

Are there any films I should check out while I’m at it?
