This year’s list includes 10 television programs and, for the first time in AFI AWARDS history, 11 motion pictures. The 2014 honorees deemed by AFI’s Jury to be culturally and artistically representative of the year’s most significant achievements are:

BIRDMAN was outstanding. Pure magic realism on film. I think it would’ve been Borges’ favorite movie. And INTERSTELLAR’s use of actual algorithms to recreate what a black hole might look like was mind-blowing. Both extremely deserving of this honor.

No House of Cards? It’s a better show than at least 5 or 6 of the other honorees.



ALEX

No Gone Girl? No Grand Budapest Hotel? No House of Cards? No True Detective? No Louie? Odd choices.

I still need to see six of these, but, of the eleven chosen that I have seen…I am certainly in agreement with most of the choices. Boyhood was a perfect film…just brilliant in every conceivable way. Interstellar was also a fantastic ride and amazing acheivement. Whiplash was excellent, I’m so happy that J.K. Simmons is finally getting his due. But, I think Birdman was pretentious nonsense. I need to see the other couple before I can speak to those….eagerly awaiting Unbroken-book was incredible.
As for your television selections, I have to ask where is Veep, Good Wife, or Girls? What do you got against the ladies AFI? And not including The Leftovers or True Detective is unforgivable. I was happy to see The Knick make the cut.

In my opinion, American Sniper is the best film of the year.
