TOP 10
1 - The wolf of Wall Street
2 - Gone Girl
3- Jeune et Jolie (Ozon)
4- The wind rises
5- Ida (the Polish film)
6- Boyhood
7- The grand Budapest Hotel
8- Violette (Martin Prevost)
9- Le temps de l'aventure
10- The LEGO movie

LIKED but not for top 10:
- Le weekend
- Wild Tales (Relatos salvajes)
- A touch of sin
- Hoje Eu Quero Voltar Sozinho (The way He looks)
- Venus in Furs
- Dallas Buyers Club
- Tavernier's Quai de Orsay
- Her
- Nebraska
- The Past

I did NOT like:
The imitation game
Deux jours Une nuit
The Immigrant (interesting and too beautiful and golden)
8 apellidos vascos
Monuments Men (Book is great)
L'inconnu du lac (super over rated)
Noah
Fury

I HATED
American Hustle
The Broken Circle Breakdown
El niño (Daniel Monzón)
Saving Mr Banks
Magic on the Moonlight

My resume: two great female performances
- Marion Cotillard, impressive in The Immigrant. She deserves the Oscar for this and not for the Belgian brother's one.
- Emmanuelle Devos for both Violette and Just a Sight

3. Birdman

4. Inherent Vice
