In grade order; otherwise, not ordered (IOW, Birdman is not sorted higher than Frank in any way other than orthographically)

My top five:

  • Boyhood
  • Whiplash
  • Only Lovers Left Alive
  • Calvary
  • Under The Skin

Just on the outside, looking in:

  • Frank
  • John Wick
  • Guardians Of The Galaxy
  • Ida
  • Edge Of Tomorrow
