Top30 Favorite Film Discoveries of 2014

15. Natarang (नटरंग)

The journey of a macho-man who finds his “true artist” inside and faces the prejudice he used to dish. Atul Kulkarni became one of my favorites after I saw this.

14. The Holy Mountain

Definitely the most WTF movie I saw this year. Exploding conquistador toads, image replicas of made-belief Jesus, naked people, magic mountain, poop, and a super random Peru mention! Definitely gonna find the time to watch more WTF movies when I find the time. I AM READY!

13. Millennium Actress (千年女優)


12. Chakde! India

I laughed and my inner girly-girl cheered and threw her tiny fist up in the air in excitement with this movie.

  1. Eat Drink Man Woman is one of my favorite movies of all time. Delighted you discovered it and that it made your list. Also a huge fan of Rose Tattoo, Auntie Mame, Caramel and El Secreto de sus Ojos.

    Great discoveries

      Eat Drink Man Woman made it to the top of my list of Food on Film. With the trilogy, I finished Ang Lee’s filmography and was amazed at the variety of his films.

      Do you happen to have other suggestions of Anna Magnani’s filmography?

  2. Millenium Actress! One of my faves. Haven’t seen Chakde! India yet, but I remember when the posters were plastered all over the Indian cinema in the town where I used to live (Fremont, California). As for WTF movie recommendations…Have you seen “Hausu?” “Killers on Parade (My Face Red in the Sunset”?” Or maybe the numerous occult flashbacks-within-flashbacks of “The Saragossa Manuscript” Not great great but interesting is “The 10th Victim.”
