Midsommar ★★★★★

So I watched the Director’s Cut of Midsommar, which was showing in theaters here for a few days and honestly, I do feel like this cut sells the “break-up movie” Ari Aster describes it as moreso than the original. The turn Dani takes certainly feels more convincing and Christian is painted as an even bigger douche canoe (if that’s even possible).

This version just feels like a different angle to the same great film. I’m very glad I was able to revisit some of those original scenes, which do reveal themselves more upon second viewing, while also getting a glimpse into what we as the audience missed from the group’s time in Halsingland between some cuts.

5/5 Aren’t there any more ways for me to watch this? Please?
