2014 Manhattan One-Week-Run Premieres

Been out of commission for a while, but here's a list of my favorite films that played at least one week in Manhattan for the first time in 2014.  Two of these films are a bit long in the tooth, but my rule is to include any film that seems vaguely contemporary.

In order of preference:

1. Bad Hair (Mariana Rondón)
2. The King of Escape (Alain Guiraudie)
3. Foxcatcher (Bennett Miller)
4. Stand Clear of the Closing Doors (Sam Fleischner)
5. The Monuments Men (George Clooney)
6. Exhibition (Joanna Hogg)
7. A Summer's Tale (Eric Rohmer)
8. Stop the Pounding Heart (Roberto Minervini)
9. Happy Christmas (Joe Swanberg)
10. The Rover (David Michôd)
11. Palo Alto (Gia Coppola)
12. Elle s'en va (On My Way) (Emmanuelle Bercot)
13. Aimer, boire et chanter (Life of Riley) (Alain Resnais)
14. Stranger by the Lake (Alain Guiraudie)

Somehow I got a little more out of step with others than usual this year.  Oh well.
