Hereditary ★★★★½

🏆90% - YouTube review HERE

One of my top three films of the year and easily something that could continue to get better. A24 continues to deliver at least twice a year. This movie makes you wait. It requires you to be patient. If there is even an ounce of you that needs to leave the theater for any reason, I would just recommend to stay for every moment. This entire film is so important to soak in from beginning to end. 

I love the subtle things happening in the background of certain shots. The way these scenes are framed along with the motions of the camera blew me away. I can’t wait to see what this director tackles next. Every performence was spot on with Collette possibly giving us the best performence of the year so far. The constant build throughout takes a while but it never lost me.

There were scenes that gave us a tad bit too much exposition for my liking and some lines that didn’t work as well as they were intended to. But I can’t remember the last time an audience was so engaged with a horror film. We were laughing, cheering and screaming. If the ending threw you off then it may cause you to not enjoy the film as a whole. I thought it was just crazy enough to work but nothing too far over the edge.
