Libby Caldwell’s review published on Letterboxd:
The most disturbing thing about this movie is that Toni Colette didn’t even get NOMINATED for her work in this!!! What the fuck Academy!!
I was definitely in the minority in that I saw Midsommar without ever seeing Hereditary because I’m still figuring out if Horror is something I actually enjoy. I absolutely loved Midsommar though and Hereditary was only the tiniest bit worse for me (which doesn’t sound like a compliment but definitely is).
I have to say that the second half is much more enjoyable to me than the first. I enjoyed the first half but everything from around the half way point just gets more and more insane as it goes on.
I actually really appreciate the differences in this and Midsommar. Ari Aster has pulled off two relatively different concepts now and I’m super excited to see what he does next!
