Flavorwire Staffers’ Favorite Films of 2014


Frank (dir. Lenny Abrahamson)

I loved Frank, the film about a rock band led by Michael Fassbender playing an outsider artist with a giant papier-mâché mask on his head. It’s easy for music films to go horribly wrong, but this one balanced a lot of tricky genres and made me laugh like a loon. Plus, there was theremin. — Elisabeth Donnelly, Nonfiction Editor
