On episode 231 of The AwardsWatch Podcast, Executive Editor Ryan McQuade is joined by AwardsWatch contributor Dan Bayer to review the latest film from A24, I Saw The TV Glow, and give out their Top A24 films.

Since its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, audience have been raving about Jane Schoenbrun’s psychological drama, I Saw the TV Glow, which is a fascinating examination of our consumption of media as well as a queer allegory about trying to find yourself within a small town that doesn’t accept you. The movie is considered by many to be the film of the year, with our own Savina Petkova calling it “fiercely beautiful” with her review out of the Berlin Film Festival. Ryan and Dan breakdown all the beautiful, complex aspects of this stellar second feature in a lengthy, spoiler free discussion.

In the back half of the episode, in honor of the latest film released by the famous yet young studio, the duo takes a trip down memory lane and talk about their favorite film released by A24. With films ranging from modern horror classics, heartwarming coming of age comedies, experimental genre films, and even two Best Picture winners, A24 has released a wide range of films that can be considered some of the most vital, celebrated cinema from any studio in the last two decades. Some of the films they talked about included The Green Knight, Hereditary, Eighth Grade, 20th Century Women, A Most Violent Year, Past Lives, Moonlight, The Zone of Interest, Lady Bird, and many more.
