2014 - Cuckoo's Year In Review

Due to a number of reasons I wasn't able to complete my annual Year In Review until now.  "Better late than never", a late person once said.
Like the previous years here at the Nutshell we reviewed more films than we can actually remember, so I like to save a list of the ones I highly recommend.
Like last time, many of these films were produced the previous year but didn't get a proper release until 2014, so yes, there are technically a few 2013 films on the list.

Here's my Top 10 Favorite Films of 2014:
