Ranking The Chicago International Film Festival

I didn’t get to see every movie I wanted to at the 50th annual Chicago International Film Festival, but I did see a bunch of good ones. Work and travel kept me away from the mid-week screening of St. Vincent and also Birdman on Saturday night so I’ll be seeing it when it hits theaters nationwide like everyone else. Here are my rankings of what I saw as of last night’s closing ceremonies.

9. The Alley Cat
8. Two Days, One Night
7. Red Rose
6. The Last Five Years
5. Miss Julie
4. Timbuktu
3. Still
2. The Clouds Of Sils Maria
1. Force Majeure

Many thanks to everyone at the Fest for making this a great experience. Hopefully I’ll be able to do it again next year!
