Another critics poll, another critics win for BoyhoodRichard Linklater's beloved 12-year-spanning drama is the choice of the critics at Little White Lies as the best film of 2014. Their list is peppered with a few hangovers from 2013, due to UK release dates, but it's full of impressive picks that will likely resound with audiences across the globe. I'm particularly happy about a Top 10 placement for Norte, the End of Historymy favourite film of 2013, and, just missing out, a #11 spot for The Strange Colour of Your Body's Tears.
