    Midsommar

    ★★★★

    This is easily one of the most shocking openings to a film I’ve ever seen.  That one take following the firemen through the house is phenomenal.

    Visually stunning and brilliantly executed, Midsommar is an extremely disturbing but beautiful film to witness.

    Ari Aster’s skills as a filmmaker are put on full display here.  Every shot is executed perfectly, each filled with many layers of metaphors and symbolism that all adds to the deeper meaning of the film.

    I went into this thinking I was going to be different than all those other 5 star Letterboxd people…

    I was wrong.
      
    This is a difficult film to express in words why it’s so good, you just have to watch it for yourself.  I went in completely blind which I believe is the best way to watch this movie, it made my entire viewing experience that much more engaging.  So I’m not going to…
