This movie is basically a Mission: Impossible movie in which Donnie Yen, as the Ethan Hunt of the scenario, is a hero, but his coworkers hate the amount of trouble he causes and his famous actress fiancé dumps him because he’s a workaholic. He spends six months in a depressive episode eating junk and watching Bruce Lee movies. This informs a third act that involves Extra-Thicc Donnie Yen parkouring through a Tokyo neighborhood set, high-kicking the shit out of nameless baddies. I enjoyed it very much.
Things that are great about MIDSOMMAR:
1. Florence Pugh.
2. Henrik Svensson's next-level production design.
3. Pawel Pogorzelski's slow, steady camera that lulls you into a state of calm.
4. Ari Aster meditating intensely about trauma and loss in the most fucked up ways.
