2014 Most Under-Appreciated Film Winner

Wild

It was kind of a narrow decision as to whether this movie was really under-rated enough to fit in with this category, but given how much of an impact Jean-Marc Vallée’s inferior 2013 film Dallas Buyers Club managed to make last year, I think the general disappearance of this movie is worth noting.  My conspiracy theory on the subject is that Fox Searchlight kind of through the movie under the bus so that it wouldn’t compete for attention with their other awards contenders (Birdman and The Grand Budapest Hotel), but whatever the reason, I do think this deserved to make more of a pop culture impression than it did.
