The Guardian – Best 2014 Films

The Guardian has released two top 10 lists of the best year’s films. The newspaper has divided the films according to their release dates in the UK and the USA. The selection of is quite interesting although admittedly there are no major surprises. The charts are quite similar of course and they also seem balanced between mainstream and art-house cinema. Finally it should be noted that only three films are non English speaking.
