The backlash to the backlash to the thing that's just begun
This movie is never once scary. It is uncomfortable, though, which is mostly because it feels like the whole thing got away from Aster halfway through. Midsommar exaggerates every one of Hereditary's flaws without including its actually thoughtful examination of grief.
I will give the cinematography a shoutout. It was beautiful to look at (when it wasn't gross).
