I Love A24!!!!
A24 is an amazing Production Company & I'm so glad there is a podcast where fan’s discuss the catalog of films while also interviewing the people involved with making the films. Awesome concept & I truly wish to contribute if needed.
Hidden Gem Movies
Just like most A24 films, this podcast is a hidden gem.
Unlike the movies they "review," this is one of the most meandering, unsubstantive podcasts I've had the displeasure of listening to. The first 10-15 minutes are always a prolonged commercial for A24, which I clearly already value as a brand by virtue of my listening to this podcast. They rarely discuss themes or story, also disregarding any insight into the process of the the filmmaking. Of course, if they do delve into this, it's after 40min of aimless discussion regarding how much they liked the movie and the actors in it.
Also, maybe it's just me, but the sound editing on the show is abysmal. It's distant, echoey, and of the lowest quality. I find myself having to double the volume on any device I'm using to listen to this.
