Critics Choice

  • The Overnighters (2014)

    “In The Overnighters documentarist Jesse Moss found his story and pursued it with remarkable empathy, all in the best traditions of the genre. He persuaded both sides in this tale of (quiet) confrontation to trust him, and they opened up completely. Then closing minute revelations that come as a total shock take his film to a different level, turning what would have been a strong film in itself into something that will stay in the memory for a very long time.” Tom Long

  • Boyhood (2014)

    “Life is the small things. Two bullies in a school bathroom. Waving goodbye to a friend you’ll never see again as you move to another town. The dweeb from work who shows up at your graduation party. Sure, there are big things, too. But most of “Boyhood,” the transcendent film from director Richard Linklater, has to do with the smaller particles, the everyday moments and scares and joys. That time your dad took you camping. Your first girlfriend and first breakup. The discovery of some vague carcass in the dirt. Your stepfather driving drunk, a 7-year-old ogling a lingerie magazine, your older sister driving you crazy with her Britney Spears impersonation. Linklater has crafted what may be the most ingenious film of the century here and given it a tone like no other by shooting the movie in bits and pieces over 12 years, following 6-year-old Mason (Ellar Coltrane) as he grows to be 18.” Tom Long

  • Ida (2014)

    “For nearly a year, Pawel Pawlikowski's quietly astounding drama “Ida” has been making the film-festival rounds to deserved admiration. Winner of Poland's highest movie honor, the director and co-writer Rebecca Lenkiewicz's masterful work takes on the vital stuff — identity, faith, history, unimaginable loss — with a meditative yet absorbing authority. Unforgettable performances from newcomer Agata Trzebuchowska as Anna/Ida and Agata Kulesza as Wanda buttress the black-and-white stunner.” Lisa Kennedy
