The Films of 2023

Renee Bright

You’ll find plenty of lists of the best films of 2023 out there. But only ours includes the tenth installment of a notoriously grisly horror franchise.

We’re joined by our favorite film historian — University of Utah professor Andrew Nelson. And, yes, according to Andrew, “Saw X” was one of the best movies that came out last year. But so, too, were “Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret” and “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.” You’ll have to listen to find out which famous blockbusters didn’t make the cut. As we start 2024, please join us for a conversation about the films of 2023 — the year of “Barbenheimer” and the apparent death of the superhero film.
