Aster's initial monochrome palette of heteronormative roles has us less than parched, but we are salivating once welcomed into society where women are presented opportunity for QUEENdom merely upon entry. Though traditions are still somewhat objectifying, have all my neighborhood breasty mamas rocking me into my sexual debut? Empowering! Have at it.

Conceptually, the introspective-facing visuals (pulsing flora !!!) and complementary sensory elements that juxtapose such communal groupthink overtones is brilliant.
