Frank Awards 2014: Best Cinematic Moment

Today we only have one category. Just like last year, I decided to feature the best moments in cinema in one post, so all of you can have the time to explore each and every one of them. Like last year, this is the only other category with 10 nominees for best moment in film in 2014.

Best Cinematic Moment

Last year the best moment was “The End of the World” present in one of the segments of ‘V/H/S/2’ (2013), a harrowing and freaky and exciting moment that still ranks as the best piece of filmmaking that I saw last year, beyond the masterpieces that I had the triumph to see.

So, the moments of this year are:

· 23 Years Gone By in ‘Interstellar’

(No clip yet, but the score used in that scene is here)

· 3D Fail in ‘Adieu au langage’

(At least I could find an image of the moment)

· Beatboxing Servant in ‘Tokyo Tribe’

(This is a disgrace, people really don’t like uploading scenes to the internet anymore. Rights. Fuck ’em.)

· Bombita in ‘Relatos salvajes’

(A small clip from the segment. No subtitles.)

· Eating Weed in ‘Inherent Vice’

(This is incredible, are these moments just not good or what?)

· On Two Wheels in ‘P’tit Quinquin’

(The moment appears in this trailer, somewhat short, it’s the penultimate image)

· Parrot Sketch in ‘Monty Python Live (Mostly)’

· Pills in ‘Deux jours, une nuit’

(I’m trying, I’m really really trying)

· Quicksilver Does It in ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’

· TV Looking Back in ‘The Babadook’

(This scene appears here, thank God, but it’s spliced together with the ending, an awful thing to do, so, watch with care)

And the best scene/moment is…

The emotional pull of ‘Interstellar’ is real and quite intriguing for anyone who can see it, but there’s no denying that the bulk of the whole experience rests in the scene where Cooper realizes that 23 years have gone by and he needs to listen and see to all those messages, ending with the one by Murph that ties up that crying scene, ties up and gives the movie a shift in perspective. It’s a turning point in a film that is filled with magical moments like this one. Great.
