You might think it is all okay to heave a satisfying sigh after all the great movies of 2014, but you might be mistaken on your claim for that. Check our list of great movies that you might have missed last year. Continue reading for the details to this feature.
The year 2014 certainly brought out a lot of movies that are more than worthy to watch on the big screen. However, with all the highly commercialized films taking over majority of the promotional avenues, it’s easy to say that it’s possible to miss a notable few in the cinematic scene. On such note, the following films are three among the few movies featured by Indiewire that certainly delivered their visual and storyline cinematic appeals without you even noticing.
James Gray’s “The Immigrant” tells a different side of the way the title is negatively perceived in the world today. The film was a featured line up in Cannes Film Festival 2013, and it tells a detailed tale of love triangle between Marion Cotillard, Joaquin Phoenix and Jeremy Renner’s characters. The movie showcased the intricacies of love, blame, duty and forgiveness that transpired within them. Everything is splayed wonderfully that critics describe it to be a silent but striking treasure.
Ever so often you would wonder how a fictional character would portray a realistic version of himself in another medium. In John Michael McDonagh’s “Calvary,” you get to see that from “Game of Thrones” actor Aiden Gillen along the lead actor Brendan Gleeson, who plays the priest in this compelling movie, and co-actors Chris O’Dowd, Dylan Moran, Orla O’Rourke, Aidan Gillen, Pat Shortt, Killian Scott, Kelly Reilly and M. Emmet Walsh. A movie with underlying violence sheathed with alluring mystery, “Calvary” examines the reality of nature found in faith and fellowship.
The movie that you will initially find to be weird, dragging and later on relevant as the plot unfolds before your very eyes. Tom Hardy plays the role of Ivan Locke, who sets out on a driving (literally) journey as he faces a point of consequence in his life. The movie takes place mostly in Ivan’s car as he drives to attend the birth of his illegitimate child who got conceived during his one-time game time with a co-worker, and he goes on questioning the turnouts of his life. In Indiewire’s review of the film, they stated that the film “beautifully evoked the kind of long night of the soul we’ve all had to go through at some point. It might have begun as a kind of experiment, but the result is a complete portrait of a man you’ll know like a family member by the time his journey’s through.”
That’s our three featured overlooked films for the year 2014. Keep tabs on Movie News Guide (MNG) for more updates on upcoming movies.
