Critics’ picks

Seattle Times reviewers didn’t see every film at SIFF 2014, of course, but many of the Golden Space Needle award-winners ended up on our list of favorites as well.

About “Boyhood,” reviewer John Hartl wrote, “Remember how you felt watching Frank Capra’s ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ for the first time? You may have a similar response to ‘Boyhood,’ Richard Linklater’s rich, spellbinding, 12-years-in-the-making epic about a struggling Texas family trying to get through the post-9/11 period.”

Also on the reviewers’ list: “Alex of Venice,” “Keep On Keepin’ On,” “Life Feels Good,” “To Be Takei,” “The Whole Wide World,” “Ballet 422,” “The Internet’s Own Boy,””Sam & Amira,” “Born to Fly,” “J’Accuse,” “Lucky Them,” “Mood Indigo,” “The Servant,” “The Case Against 8,” “Ida,” “The Skeleton Twins” and “Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon.”
