Midsommar ★★★★

A hard movie to describe but it’s kind of like if you were home sick, pounding down cold medicine, and then you watched a documentary on a Swedish commune, immediately followed by the Wicker Man. Then after all that, you take some shrooms, and you have this crazy little slice of folk horror. 

It didn’t have the same impact on me that Hereditary did, but I was interested throughout the whole 2 and 1/2 runtime and the movie looks gorgeous. Also, interestingly, there was way more comedy than I expected in this. 

I’ll be very curious to see what Ari Aster does next.
