Midsommar ★★½

The trailer made it look like Ari Aster was just going to be straight-up jacking The Wicker Man, but I went along to see this anyway, hoping he'd do something interesting with it.


Not only did he not do anything interesting, it turns out he was straight-up jacking the Nicolas Cage version of The Wicker Man.

Here's my prediction: Ari Aster is gonna have a Shyamalan-like critical reckoning in the next ten years that's gonna make film Twitter finally sick up their shroom-drinks and realise Aster is a goddamn charlatan.
