I love not fully knowing what I'm going into. This movie, while not the letter to me, I saw who it was for and it was dissociating beauty. So many questions and little messages that make me want to see it again under a new lense. A24 films often I find best not trying to make sense the first watch, so I'm excited for my second, to great the story like a friend I'm getting to know better. the visual was glorious and the soundtrack was glorious. The main actor was well chosen and portrayed the character phenomenally!

The film gives good insight into the confusion and fear we may face when exploring our sense of self.

I Saw the TV Glow marks a remarkable progression for Schoenbrun as both writer and director, a more substantive, if still challenging, narrative married with an incredible, expanded ability to fully immerse us in the visuals they have created. It’s made with such transportive precision that I can still feel it as I write.

I Saw the TV Glow manages to be enveloping without being inviting and to offer a sense of emotional intimacy without requiring that those emotions be comprehensible.
