Midsommar

Midsommar ★★★★★

I don't know if this was brought back to the theatre based on some "Oscars snub" or "twisted Valentine's Day" theme, but I honestly don't care why. If it's back on the big screen, I'm there!

This is the first time I've watched Midsommar since September, and sadly it was not the Director's Cut (the employee I asked said they wanted to but weren't allowed to show that version at this time), but I will take what I can get. With such a long break between viewings, it was almost fresh again but still like an old friend that was comfortable and familiar to revisit. Once again, I caught several things I'd not noticed previously and while I missed the extra footage, it was not disappointing in the least.

This movie is just as meaningful to me but resonates on a slightly different level now, and it's an interesting way to gauge the changes in my life since last autumn. I love that so many people think of me when they think of this film - that's such a compliment. Just like with David Bowie, it's a part of who I am and it's importance to me has transcended explanation. I don't expect anyone else to understand; I'm just incredibly grateful for its place in my life.
