    The Lighthouse

    ★★★½

    Robert Eggers had his sexual awakening to the chicken scene in Eraserhead and made The Lighthouse to work through that trauma.

  • Midsommar

    Midsommar

    ★★★★

    It's unfortunate for Ari Aster that Midsommar is doomed to be compared to Hereditary, despite taking it in such a different direction. Especially since I seem to be in the minority camp thinking Midsommar is better.

    I really liked the slow burn, and I'm glad to see Aster can still do existential horror in the confines of a more grounded and straightforward narrative. The location and costume design – as gorgeous as expected. The whole world-building was very impressive and remarkably thorough.

    Far from the Apple Tree

    The ending is obvious within the first few minutes. Unfortunately, it's too long and self-indulgent to make the journey to the ending fun. A bit more time in the editing room might make it passable.
