Readers’ film choice 2014

We asked you for your best films of 2014. The results are in.


In the annual Sight & Sound end-of-year poll for the best movies of 2014, Richard Linklater’s Boyhood reigned supreme, followed by the latest works by Jean-Luc Godard (Goodbye to Language) and Andrey Zvyagintsev (Leviathan).

We asked you to let us know your top choices – but did you agree with Sight & Sound voters that Boyhood is the film of the year?

No. This year, Jonathan Glazer’s sinister sci-fi Under the Skin, starring Scarlett Johansson as an alien predator, took the top spot. Boyhood came in second, while bronze was taken by Pawel Pawlikowski’s haunting Ida, which also scooped the best film award at the 2013 London Film Festival. Popular favourites The Wolf of Wall Street (released back in January) and The Grand Budapest Hotel also made the top five.
