Midsommar ★★★

an interesting experiment in Asters own flexibility as a writer, one that sometimes really works and sometimes really doesn’t. everything before the title drop is very, very slow and honestly quite boring that it’s such a delight that it becomes okay quickly afterwards. it’s by far the funniest film of the year, even when it’s not trying to be. beyond will poulters incessant horniness being downright hilarious, some of the films more extreme moments are more comedic than they probably intend to be (the “mating” scene had me and my friends in absolute hysterics.) but beyond that, it is pretty entrancing in its own lush visuals and fucked up nature.
