Hereditary ★★★

Whew. ‘Hereditary’ has all the visual and cinematic intelligence you’d want in a horror film, but doesn’t seem to point to any kind of deeper truth to make its nihilism and punishment worth tolerating. It’s sort of frustrating because the calibre of the film overall (performances, production design) really suggests you’re going to get a proper meal.

I do appreciate Ari Aster’s ability to misdirect, but I’m not buying this.
