I Saw the TV Glow Review

‘I Saw the TV Glow’ peers at the dark side of nostalgia and suburbia. Reality cracks wide open in ‘I Saw the TV Glow,’ an eerie and evocative tale steeped in ‘90s pop culture nostalgia and the pain of self-realization.

Opening in theaters on May 3rd is ‘I Saw the TV Glow,’ directed by Jane Schoenbrun and starring Justice Smith, Brigette Lundy-Paine, Helena Howard, Fred Durst, Danielle Deadwyler, Lindsey Jordan, and Amber Benson. Horror, reality-bending fantasy, and a whole lot of ‘90s nostalgia come together in ‘I Saw the TV Glow,’ the second full-length feature film written and directed by Jane Schoenbrun, who made their debut in 2021 with the creepy, pandemic-infused ‘We’re All Going to the World’s Fair.’ This time out, Schoenbrun takes their cues from David Lynch, ‘Donnie Darko,’ and weird ‘90s kids television to tell a story of suburban apathy and gender dysphoria that’s both haunting and poignant, even if it may seem obscure to some viewers.
