Hereditary

Hereditary ★★★

better when it's [A Doll's House + August: Osage County + Synechdoche, NY] x [Kubrick + Polanski], but ultimately, its horror elements feel tacked on, almost condescending. I get the impression that Aster thinks he's somewhat above the genre, so the things that are great about this film (family chamber drama about a mother and a son who don't know how to love one another during bereavement!!) are undone by how bad its horror stuff is.
