Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Boyhood by writer/director Richard Linklater (director and co-writer of Before Midnight) is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason's parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, Boyhood charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before. Snapshots of adolescence from road trips and family dinners to birthdays and graduations and all the moments in between become transcendent, set to a soundtrack spanning the years from Coldplay's "Yellow" to Arcade Fire's "Deep Blue." Boyhood is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting. It's impossible to watch Mason and his family without thinking about our own journey.

Michael Winterbottom's largely improvised 2010 film The Trip took comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon—or semifictionalized versions thereof—on a restaurant tour around northern England. In this witty and incisive follow-up, Winterbottom reunites the pair for a new culinary road trip, retracing the steps of the Romantic poets' grand tour of Italy and indulging in some sparkling banter and impersonation-offs. Re-whetting our palates from the earlier film, the characters enjoy mouthwatering meals in gorgeous settings from Liguria to Capri while riffing on subjects as varied as Batman's vocal register, the artistic merits of "Jagged Little Pill," and, of course, the virtue of sequels. Winterbottom trains his camera to capture the idyllic Italian landscape and the gastronomic treasures being prepared and consumed while keeping the film centered on the crackling chemistry between the two leads. The Trip to Italy effortlessly melds the brilliant comic interplay between Coogan and Brydon into quieter moments of self-reflection, letting audiences into their insightful ruminations on the nuances of friendship and the juggling of family and career. The result is a biting portrait of modern-day masculinity. Official Web Site

Only Lovers Left Alive is the best film in years by writer/director Jim Jarmusch (Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai, Mystery Train, Down By Law). Stylish, hip and droll, it's the nocturnal tale of two vampires in love, and their quest for amusement and an untainted supply of blood. Tom Hiddleston (Loki in Marvel's The Avengers and the Thor films) and the ageless Tilda Swinton (I Am Love, Michael Clayton) play Adam and Eve, vampires who have been lovers for centuries. He's a reclusive underground musician hiding out in the ruins of Detroit; she's a lover of knowledge residing in Tangier—but they're soulmates. Adam's music is eagerly received by the zombies (i.e. humans) such as rock promoter Ian (Anton Yelchin, Star Trek), whose adulation threatens his need for solitude. Sensing Adam's growing angst and despair, Eve makes a transatlantic journey to see him, despite the difficulties of travelling by day. Their joyful reunion is interrupted by the uninvited arrival of Eve's carefree and uncontrollable little sister Ava (Mia Wasikowska, Alice in Wonderland, The Kids Are All Right), who brings trouble in her wake. Driven by sensual photography, trance-like music by Jarmusch's band Squrl, and sly humor, Only Lovers Left Alive is a hypnotic meditation on art, science, memory, and the mysteries of everlasting love. With John Hurt and Jeffrey Wright. Official Web Site

Sergio Leone's epic homage to the Hollywood western has become a cinematic classic. Leone plays with the genre's conventions primarily through evocative camerawork and music, and with a minimum of dialogue. Starring Henry Fonda, Claudia Cardinale, Jason Robards and Charles Bronson, Once Upon a Time in the West follows several stories, all centering on greed, murder and revenge. In one, gunmen slaughter an entire family who are awaiting the arrival of their father's new bride. The wife valiantly attempts to hold on to the land she has inherited. But the cold-blooded outlaws who committed the massacre want to complete the job by killing her. There's also a mysterious "Nameless Man" who has his own reasons for hunting down these bandits... and he has murder on his mind.

Two-time Academy Award nominee Jeremy Renner (The Town, The Hurt Locker) leads an all-star cast in a dramatic thriller based on the remarkable true story of Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Gary Webb. Webb (Renner) stumbles onto a story which leads to the shady origins of the men who started the crack epidemic on the nation's streets... and further alleges that the CIA was aware of major dealers who were smuggling cocaine into the U.S., and using the profits to arm rebels fighting in Nicaragua. Despite warnings from drug kingpins and CIA operatives to stop his investigation, Webb keeps digging to uncover a conspiracy with explosive implications. His journey takes him from the prisons of California to the villages of Nicaragua to the highest corridors of power in Washington, D.C.—and draws the kind of attention that threatens not just his career, but his family and his life.

Furter, Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick as his hapless guests Brad and Janet, Meat Loaf as motorcycle-riding rough trade and author Richard O’Brien as the hunchbacked butler Riff Raff.
