The 5 Best A24 Movies Available on Netflix Right Now

Updated January 2, 2022 • Staff

The idea to start A24 came to founder Daniel Katz when he was driving on the Italian highway by the same name. From then, the venture went from a fleeting concept to an independent distribution company to one of the biggest stamps of quality a movie can have today.

In its young seven years of existence, A24 has seen its movies nominated to the Oscars an impressive 25 times. And if you still don't know who I'm talking about, you might recognize some of their recent releases: Midsommar, Jonah Hill's Mid90s, Lady Bird, Moonlight, Good Time,The Lobster, Ex Machina, The Witch, and Swiss Army Man to name a few. The film distribution and production company has also taken a swing at TV with the HBO hit Euphoria and the fantastic Hulu production Ramy.

But below, we count down their top movie releases that are available to stream on Netflix right now.

The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017)

This is a really weird movie starring Colin Farrell and Nicole Kidman. They play a wholesome and well-off couple where Farrell is a heart surgeon. The movie starts with him taking care of a teenager called Martin, who's not related to him or seems to have any real connection with him. It later turns out that Martin shares a special bond with the surgeon, a bond that will threaten his family in unexpected ways. The camera work and direction by Yorgos Lanthimos (The Lobster, The Favourite) offset the weirdness to offer an intriguing experience.

Genre: Drama, Mystery, Thriller
Actor: Alicia Silverstone, Anita Farmer Bergman, Barry G. Bernson, Barry Keoghan, Bill Camp, Charles Poole, Colin Farrell, Denise Dal Vera, Drew Logan, Herb Caillouet, Lea Hutton Beasmore, Megan Chelf Fisher, Michelle Dobrozsi, Nicole Kidman, Raffey Cassidy, Sunny Suljic
Director: Yorgos Lanthimos

Good Time (2017)

A fast-paced thriller, and "actually dangerous" movie as envisioned by its directors, Good Time is about a bank robbery gone wrong and one brother trying to get his other brother out of jail in its aftermath. It's a deep and fast dive into New York's criminal underworld that will not give you the time to catch a single full breath. The rhythm here is, without exaggeration, unlike anything I've seen before. It's anxiety-inducing and very... primal. Incredible work featuring a career-pivoting performance from Robert Pattinson as the loose criminal that will do literally anything in the pursuit of seeing his brother free.

Genre: Crime, Drama, Thriller
Actor: Barkhad Abdi, Ben Safdie, Benny Safdie, Buddy Duress, Cliff Moylan, Craig muMs Grant, Edgar Morais, Eloisa Santos, George Lee Miles, Gladys Mathon, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Laurence Blum, Lucas Elliot Eberl, Necro, Peter Linari, Peter Verby, Robert Clohessy, Robert Pattinson, Rose Gregorio, Roy James Wilson, Sebastian Bear-McClard, Taliah Webster
Director: Ben Safdie, Benny Safdie, Josh Safdie, Joshua Safdie

Tell Me Who I Am (2019)

This documentary starts with Alex Lewis, who gets into a motorcycle accident and wakes up in the hospital not knowing who he is. He doesn’t remember anything (not even what a bicycle or a TV is, or who his mother or father are), but he remembers his twin brother, Marcus. When Alex gets back into his childhood home, he’s full of questions, and Marcus is full of answers. However, slowly, Marcus realizes his power to reshape Alex’s version of their past. Marcus leaves one important detail from Alex’s life that makes this documentary (as if it wasn’t already) such an insane story. I know I said it’s a sad movie, but it’s also fascinating and, ultimately, humanizing of the brothers’ experience.

Genre: Documentary, Drama, Mystery
Actor: Alex Lewis, Andrew Caley, Evan Milton, Marcus Lewis |
Director: Ed Perkins
Rating: TV-MA

The Florida Project (2017)

Every once in a while there are movies that expand the definition of quality film-making. This is one of those movies.

Here is an incredible, yet delicate film that follows three children from poor families who are stuck living in subpar motels. Their lives and friendships are portrayed with honesty and precise aesthetics. It’s a story that at first seems as plot-free as life itself.

It succeeds in capturing an innocence that is usually reserved to a child’s imagination: a precarious living condition full of adventures and fun. It’s hard to describe it beyond that; it’s the kind of film that must be seen to be fully understood.

And it ends on a very high note.

Genre: Drama
Actor: Aiden Malik, Bria Vinaite, Brooklynn Prince, Caleb Landry Jones, Christopher Rivera, Jim R. Coleman, Josie Olivo, Karren Karagulian, Macon Blair, Sabina Friedman-Seitz, Shih-Ching Tsou, Valeria Cotto, Willem Dafoe
Director: Sean Baker

The Disaster Artist (2017)

A hilarious and smart comedy that is almost impossible to hate. It doesn’t matter if you liked The Room or not; or if you’ve even heard of it, you will find The Disaster Artist extremely enjoyable. Same applies for James Franco, it’s irrelevant if you think he’s the hottest man walking or a complete waste of screen-time - this movie is better approached without any preconceived ideas. It follows the true events surrounding Tommy Wiseau’s making of The Room, a movie so bad it actually became a worldwide hit. Tommy’s character, played by Franco, is 100% mystery. He pops out of nowhere and does and says things that contain little to no logic. Capitalizing on this, the movie is both absolutely hilarious and intriguing from beginning to end.

Genre: Comedy, Drama
Actor: Adam Scott, Adwin Brown, Alison Brie, Amechi Okocha, Andrew Santino, Ari Graynor, Bob Odenkirk, Brett Gelman, Brian Huskey, Bryan Cranston, Casey Wilson, Charlyne Yi, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Danny McBride, Dave Franco, David DeCoteau, Dree Hemingway, Dylan Minnette, Eliza Coupe, Erin Cummings, Frederick Keeve, Greg Sestero, Hannibal Buress, Ike Barinholtz, J.J. Abrams, Jacki Weaver, James Franco, Jason Mantzoukas, Jason Mitchell, Jenna Curtis, Jerrod Carmichael, Jessie Ennis, John Early, Josh Hutcherson, Judd Apatow, June Diane Raphael, Kara Gibson, Kate Upton, Keegan-Michael Key, Kether Donohue, Kevin Smith, Kristen Bell, Lauren Ash, Lizzy Caplan, Megan Ferguson, Megan Mullally, Melanie Griffith, Nathan Fielder, Paul Scheer, Peter Gilroy, Randall Park, Ricky Mabe, Seth Rogen, Sharon Stone, Slim Khezri, Sugar Lyn Beard, Tamzin Brown, Tom Franco, Tommy Wiseau, Xosha Roquemore, Zac Efron, Zach Braff, Zoey Deutch
Director: James Franco
