Three of my top films this year were about relationships and Her is the best among them, making us laugh while having us reflect upon the relationships in our lives.
2. Before Midnight
This third installment takes Jessie and Celine's relationship from fantasy to reality in what makes for the best in the Before series yet.
3. The Wolf of Wall Street
A three-hour film fueled by cocaine that delves into the life of Jordan Belfort and the culture of the 90s financial industry.
4. 12 Years a Slave
An emotionally driven film that contains a handful of great performances and the most gut wrenching scene of the year.
The best of the years many coming of age tales because of the way it focuses on the parallels of Ellis and the title character in their desire to understand and find love.
8. Dallas Buyers Club
9. All is Lost
10. American Hustle
