2014 FILM REVIEWS RATED FIVE STARS ***UPDATED***

Instead of having to wait for the international award season in early 2015 to consolidate the best flicks of 2014, I’ve decided to compile a list of the films reviewed on Graffiti with Punctuation, that have appeared within the calendar year that have received a [rating=5] rating. We’ll most definitely continue to add to this prestigious list as we dive headlong into the awards season, or as new reviews for the below films are published. However, in no particular order, are the films this year that deserve celebration and adoration.
