    Ari Aster is quickly becoming one of my favorite horror filmmakers. Instead of making the typical paranormal/supernatural/jump-scare ridden horror film, Aster leans on the truly horrific: anxiety, grief, and just plain living. How one navigates the horrors of everyday life can be the most jarring to watch. Midsommar is a beautiful portrait of facing and overcoming one's anxieties and struggles head-on.

    Absolutely stunning. It’s a slow burn, but I never felt bored. The chemistry between the two leads was incredible. The subtle glances, the simple touch in passing, the raw emotion that is portrayed without words - just beautiful. The way I felt during this film will stick with me for a while.

    Cameron Crowe sure knows how to tug on my heartstrings. Orlando Bloom and Kirsten Dunst have undeniable chemistry but this movie has so much more to it than just the romance storyline. It reminds you to appreciate the small moments and make space for what really matters in life. The soundtrack is amazing as well. Sure love this film!

    Celine Sciamma is so talented behind the camera. I can hardly believe this is her first feature. The raw emotion she is able to convey in film is incredible. Her characters are flawed, real and relatable. All of her films are a joy to watch and Water Lilies is no exception.

    This is the kind of movie that just makes you feel happy to be alive. It will tug on your nostalgia strings and leave you yearning for youth. Damien Chazelle perfectly orchestrates this beautiful film in the best way possible. You fall in love with the characters and find yourself rooting for love. The cinematography, editing, score and performances all come together perfectly in this love letter to classic cinema. Long story short, go see it!!

    JJ did it guys! One of the best sci-fi films I've seen in years. It is perfectly paced and reminiscent of the original trilogy in many ways. The performances were spot-on and the story never dragged. Exactly what I wanted out of a Star Wars film.
