Even critics can’t see every movie that gets made, but here are my 10 favorites of the films I caught in 2014, followed by the 10 that I most wish I had missed.

Starting with the 10 movies at the top of my recommended must-see list:

1) “The Grand Budapest Hotel”: Director/cowriter Wes Anderson’s stylish, smart and screwball comedy about a bygone-era European concierge (Ralph Fiennes) who is pursued and imprisoned over an inherited painting is the only film this year that I gave an “A+” grade. Like nearly all of Anderson’s movies, it’s so charming, witty and ridiculously good-looking that it’s absolutely irresistible.
