Really interesting list. But, except for "Big Eyes," I guess I'll have to see the other nine On Demand or on Netflix.

Congratulations on definitely being "not usual"!

Like your list. As I see it, 2014 was good for small films that went under the radar and not much else.

Way too much to catch up with. I guess that's why I keep returning to older films over and over again. I'm ill-informed on modern movies. Is Lynch's "Mulholland Drive" still modern?

Thirteen? Odd, unstable number,Joe! (Or is it fourteen?)

Yes, Brian, but it's an odd, unstable list. I say with much pride. I think of the Keira Knightly twins as one film. Thirteen in all.
