Midsommar ★★★½

Ari Aster and Pawel Pogorzelski's search for the perfect shot continues in the somewhat diluted Midsommar.

After a heart-stopping opening sequence, I found myself quietly hoping the film would rebuild that momentum. But as Midsommar hesitates, Florence Pugh only soars - with an unreal performance that'll stay with me as one of this years best.

The world Aster builds, especially here in the Director's Cut, is nothing short of fascinating - but that depth is never quite matched by the narrative weaving through all of those beautiful flowers.
