Home Movies American Film Institute Best 10 Films: Boyhood, Imitation, Whiplash, Foxcatcher– No Theory

AFI Top 10: Does not include “Theory of Everything.” That’s a surprise, but I can see it. The movie falls apart. The performances are more than the film. No “Most Violent Year”– even though the National Board of Idiots picked it. I think this is a very good list, and good work on the part of the AFI. If this group of 10 went to the Oscars, I’d be happy.

Birdman

Boyhood

Unbroken

Whiplash

AFI Top 10 TV shows:

more surprising is that 8 of them are on cable or other media. Only “How to Get Away with Murder” is on ABC. “Jane the Virgin” is on the barely existent CW Network.  No “House of Cards” or “Good Wife” or “Downton Abbey” (oh wait, that’s British).
