    One final viewing of the Director's Cut, and all good things must come to an end. I finally feel satiated and have gleaned almost all that I could from this film. I don't know that I'll be able to watch it on the small screen when it's released on dvd, but nothing else in the past several years has given me as much joy as this has, and I appreciate the accompaniment of this glorious film during one of the most memorable years of my life. I hope to someday meet a person who will make me as happy as this film does. ILU Midsommar <3.

    Wow, there is nothing else like this "comedy" (to label it as such is to short-change it), although it gave off serious Fight Club vibes. I didn't really laugh because it was too accurate of a commentary on classic toxic masculinity, but it was still quite funny.

    Really great performances from Jessie Eisenberg and Imogen Poots, and a perfect ending. I knew it was going to be my kind of movie about 20 minutes in, but I think my audience…
