This is it. The final week to put up or shut up. A24, Dreamworks Animation, and Sony finally did put up. Perhaps Lionsgate, CBS Films, Dreamworks and Relativity will show up late at the ball, but don’t count on it. If they do, you can count that we will post their FYC’s.

So, the cat dragged in some gems:
A Most Violent Year – Jessica Chastain really worked hard last year.
Enemy – A Direct TV movie? Not: Ran in theaters for nine weeks.
Locke – Different, riveting, experimental.
Obvious Child – Better than you think. In fact, good.
Under the Skin – Nominated by GIFP, a different take on alien love.
The Rover – Is it Mad Max meets… ?
A Most Wanted Man – Philip Seymour Hoffman’s last movie before Mockingjay.
Mommy (also nominated for an Independent Spirit Award – Best Foreign Film)
Dear White People – Good Indie cred with multiple noms from that field.
Stay posted to make sure you get all the info for Award Season. Most, if not all, films up for consideration are worth putting on your must see movie list.
