While the Oscar nominations have sparked a new round of debate over the best films of 2023, the Sundance Film Festival is the start of 2024’s cinema conversation. This year, the prestigious event offered dazzling documentaries, tender dramas, riveting horror, and an action-comedy that asks, “What if Tom Cruise inspired a 93-year-old woman to get revenge with her own hands?”
Last year our best of the fest list included such gems as Rye Lane, Birth/Rebirth, and Talk to Me. This year, we’ve got a mix of docs, narrative features, and even a TV pilot that hit so good. Whether you’re craving Kristen Stewart in an unconventional romance, a true story of a life lived well and full online, an unnerving exploration of AI’s possibilities, or comedies as touching as they are creative, we’ve got you covered.
Here are the best things we saw at Sundance 2024, and where you can watch them.
