No intellectual property, no superheroes, just an abiding love for moviemaking. That’s what you’ll find at A24. This company has made an indelible niche for itself in the entertainment industry: Their brand of cinema is unlike anything else, and they consistently release movies that are critically acclaimed and appreciated by movie lovers of all stripes. That also includes the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, who awarded the company Best Picture, in a tight field and a close call, for Moonlight, directed by Barry Jenkins.
This video tribute to A24 will re-introduce you to their stellar stable of recent releases, and also calls out their particular brand of horror, often characterized by ecological and psychological threats—after seeing the trailer for Hereditary, starring Toni Collette, I thought it was worth mentioning the approach they take to scary movies. Enjoy, and please do yourself (and the movie industry) a favor and buy a ticket to see an A24 film as soon as possible.
