Tom Long's top 10 films of the year

Despite the odd, dark turn toward the end, 2014 had its share of good movies. Detroit News Movie Critic Tom Long lists his favorites: "Boyhood" (R ) -- Quite simply the most audacious film of the century so far. That writer-director Richard Linklater even conceived the idea of shooting a film over a 12-year period, watching a family and a boy (Ellar Coltrane) grow up and wrestle with reality, is wonderful invention. That he was able to make it work artistically, to hold to a coherent vision over all that time, is even more impressive. Yet the entire enterprise feels emotionally true beginning to end.
