Midsommar ★★★★½

Fantastic. After my first viewing I was unsure what to think of this film much like Ari Aster’s previous film Hereditary, but much like that one it grew on me over time, and after my second viewing it is clear to see that this is one of my favorite films of the year. Caught so much more of the symbolism and subtle hints throughout. After listening to the score and then hearing it again in the film it just feels weirdly transcendent. A lot of the movie feels that way. It’s so beautiful, but messed up, but funny, but so well-crafted that I can’t help but to love it. Aster directs the heck out of this movie and I can’t wait to see what he does next.
