Midsommar ★★★★

The Swedish marketing for this seems a little deceptive (link).

A bravura piece of filmmaking that inspires laughs and grimaces in (almost) equal measure. No one does horrifying imagery quite like Ari Aster, though this film only has a couple of images that I'll take to my grave, as opposed to the dozen or so that Hereditary had. But what it lacks in horror it makes up with the sort of carefully constructed, meticulously designed feeling of doom, a vibe Aster already seems like a master of.
