For those not acquainted with the works of A24, it is an independent entertainment company that specializes in film and television production, as well as movie distribution. Founded in 2012 by Daniel Katz, David Fenkel, and John Hodges, this New York company started its run by acquiring rights to A Glimpse Inside The Mind Of Charles Swan III, which didn't bring the company much success; however, the growth started with the release of Harmony Korine's Spring Breakers, then Alex Garland's Ex Machina, and Robert Eggers’ The Witch. A24's aim is to deliver movies that are original, thoughtful, independent, and, honestly, mind-blowing, which makes their selection irresistible to cinema connoisseurs. Still, not all of A24's movies are equally good, so we've tried to rank them in our list of the best A24 movies, which you'll find just a bit further down.

If you think you've heard the name A24 but still cannot put your finger on it, allow us to drop some of their highest-grossing names, and maybe that'll ring the bell for you. Have you heard about the sleepless night-inducing, creepiest-ever horror movie Hereditary? Yup, it's A24 behind it! Then, how about probably one of the best movies of the 21st century, Moonlight? Right, it is also the same company. Add in the gem that is Uncut Gems, a TV series known as Euphoria, recent works by Yorgos Lanthimos, and voila - you have the selection of awesome movies that A24 has to offer.

So, prepare yourself for undeniably quality cinema and scroll on down below to see the full selection of films A24 has to offer. If you disagree with our ranking, vote for the movies you think deserve to be on top! Also, don't forget to share these superb movies with your cinephile friends.

Lady Bird

Lady Bird

2017 | 1 hour 34 minutes | Directed by Greta Gerwig
 

Starring Saoirse Ronan, Laurie Metcalf, Tracy Letts

Lady Bird is a coming-of-age comedy-drama, marking Greta Gerwig's solo directorial debut. It is a story of a teenager in her last years of school and her strained relationship with her mother. As with any teenager, she's full of aspirations and wanderlust, but none of these things exist in her catholic school. Lady Bird is an absolutely fresh take on the turmoil that is the process of coming of age and a story elevated by subtle directing and outstanding acting.

Moonlight

Moonlight

2016 | 1 hour 51 minutes | Directed by Barry Jenkins
 

Starring Mahershala Ali, Naomie Harris, Trevante Rhodes

Moonlight is a coming-of-age drama based on an unpublished semi-autobiographical play by Tarrell Alvin McCraney called In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue. The story here spans three time periods - childhood, adolescence, and early adulthood - of an African American boy named Chiron. His early start in life isn't an enviable one as he's under the dubious care of his crack addict mother living in a crime-riddled Miami neighborhood. However, a drug dealer takes him under his wing, and with the care of his loving girlfriend, Chiron finds refuge in an unlikely place. The movie further explores the difficulties Chiron faces with his sexuality and identity, including the abuse he endured growing up. Upon its premiere, Moonlight blew the critics away, righteously took the most prestigious awards, and is now forever lodged in cinema's hall of fame.

Eighth Grade

Eighth Grade

2018 | 1 hour 33 minutes | Directed by Bo Burnham
 

Starring Elsie Fisher, Josh Hamilton, Emily Robinson

Eighth Grade is a coming-of-age comedy-drama following the story of a middle-school teenager as she tries to cope with anxiety caused by a disastrous school year, finally gaining acceptance in the last week of the eighth grade. Eighth Grade is a wonderful portrayal of the angst, the self-loathing, and the reinvention young teenage girls go through right around the age of starting high school. However, Eighth Grade does not shy away from the comedic aspects of this tumultuous deal of growing up, making it into a very realistic, relatable work of cinema praised by critics and loved by audiences.

Minari

Minari

2020 | 1 hour 55 minutes | Directed by Lee Isaac Chung
 

Starring Steven Yeun, Yeri Han, Alan S. Kim

Minari is a drama film that's a semi-autobiographical take on the director Lee Isaac Chung's upbringing in a Korean immigrant family. The father of a family, an ambitious dreamer, and a chaser of the American Dream moves his family from California to rural Arkansas to start their own farm. Mind you, the events here are set in the 1980s and that in itself presents a challenge or two for the family of immigrants. Although it is a classical story of such circumstances, in Minari, it feels very real and very relatable, partly because of the multi-layered emotions it uses to tell the tale.
