What's the reason for the lack of ratings for the first two movies on your list?

The versions I saw were close to being complete but were still technically rough cuts and were privately screened with the understanding that no reviews would be written of them until they're officially completed and released.

BEST
01. Under the Skin
02. Only Lovers Left Alive
03. The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby
04. Night Moves
05. Joe
06.
07.
08.
09.
10.

The first 2 on this list would have made it easily into my top 10 this year. Disappearance probably would have been a runner-up. Night Moves and Joe fall off significantly from the rest. I included Stranger by the Lake on here at first but realized it was released in France in 2013, so I'll count it as a 2013 film (I base mine off of release dates in country of origin).

WORST
01. The Sacrament
02. Oculus
03.
04.
05.
06.
07.
08.
09.
10.

Neither of these movies are terrible but belong more on this list than the above one for me.

I'm excited to see QUENTIN really dug the (non-locked) version of Boyhood.

Just incredible. I agree that it is the best filmed work so far this year. The "In the Woods" two-parter was also excellent.
