Midsommar ★★★½

All the tools that Ari Aster used in Hereditary — a film I adore — are on display in Midsommar. However, his sophomore effort lacks two things that prevent it from taking off: a compelling plot — the beats are shocking, but not surprising — and an understanding of its core themes. Still, the movie has all the creeps and disturbing imagery you’d expect — plus an incredible sense of humor.

Full review here.
