Midsommar ★★★★★

It kind of feels like the flip side of Hereditary. Where Hereditary was dark and serious, this is bright and intentionally funny in a lot of parts. What both films have in common is an almost master level of creeping dread. Ari Aster is just a born filmmaker and this movie is filled with fluid long takes, carefully constructed framing and unnerving visual motifs. The Scandinavian folk world he’s built feels real and ominous. This will for sure end up in my top 5 of the year, it’s also probably the best horror film of the year.
