Nightcrawler (2014)
Los Angeles-based night-drifter Lou Bloom (Gyllenhaal) is looking for a job. After stumbling upon a pre-dawn car wreck, he spots a cameraman (Paxton) recording the carnage. Hours later, he sees the same images on the morning news. Finally, Bloom has found his calling...

Mr. Turner (2014)
A highly personal account of the twilight years of British land and seascape artist J. M. W. Turner (Spall), which finds him at the height of his fame and talent, but increasingly adrift from the world.

The Babadook (2014)
Widowed Amelia (Davis) struggles to cope with her six year-old son Samuel (Wiseman), who is terrified of imaginary monsters. A strange children’s book, Mr. Babadook, inspires Sam to a nightmarish fantasy. Gradually, Amelia comes to share his fear and believe that a monster called the Babadook is persecuting her family.

Tony Benn: Will And Testament (2014)
Political campaigner, passionate humanitarian and pipe-smoking icon, Tony Benn was never afraid to polarise or aflame with his trenchant views and tightly-held views. As such, he's a mesmerising subject for Skip Kite's documentary.

Le Jour Se Lève
Foundry worker Francois (Gabin) shoots and kills Valentin (Berry), then holes up in a room in a guest house. The film respools to reveal the circumstances that put Francois in such a desperate position.

The Cabinet Of Dr. Caligari (2014)
High in the German mountains, Francis (Fehér) recounts the strange, twisted tale of Dr. Caligari (Krauss) and his tactiturn somnambulist, Cesare (Veidt).

Two Days, One Night (2014)
A small company asks employees to choose between getting bonuses and making just-back-from-sick-leave Sandra (Cotillard) redundant. Sandra spends a weekend trying to persuade enough of her workmates to change their votes so that she can keep her job.

Some Like It Hot (2014)
Witnesses to the St. Bartholomew's Day massacre, struggling musicians Joe (Curtis) and Jerry (Lemmon) escape from Chicago by donning women's clothes and joining a musical troupe heading for the sunshine of Florida. Befriended by Sugar "Kane" Kowalczyk (Monroe), the pair hope their disguises outlast their Mob pursuers...

Boyhood (2014)
Six year-old Mason (Coltrane) lives with his mom (Arquette) and sister Samantha (Linklater) in Texas, Dad (Hawke) having recently left. We follow his and the family’s life over the next 12 years, as boy becomes man.

A Hard Day's Night (2014)
Escaping hordes of fans, the Beatles board a train for London to play on a live TV show. Joined by their manager Norm and Paul’s grandfather, the band groove at a nightspot before Ringo goes AWOL, throwing the whole television appearance into jeopardy.

Rebel Without A Cause (2014)
Flighty, devil-may-care 17 year-old Jim Stark (Dean) moves to Los Angeles with his parents. Enrolling in high school, he's soon in deep with both the law and his fellow teenagers, including local muscle-brain Buzz Gunderson.

Calvary (2014)
Sligo, Ireland. In the confessional, Father James (Gleeson) learns that one of his congregation, who was abused by another priest, intends to kill him in a week’s time. The priest is visited by his daughter (Reilly), who has recently attempted suicide, and deals with a range of locals who have differing reasons to hate the Catholic Church.

Wake In Fright (2014)
Working as a teacher in a two-horse Outback town, Gary Bond heads to a neighbouring town to catch a flight back to Sydney for Christmas. His plans, though, are soon derailed as the sweaty, sinister locals make his life a misery.

Stranger By The Lake (2014)
Franck (Deladonchamps) frequents a gay cruising spot by a lake, one day meeting handsome Michel (Paou). The attraction is instant, but Michel is dangerous. Will their liaison prove fatal?
