Midsommar ★★★★½

This movie hit my sweet spot perfectly! At times funny, horrific and shocking, while also being trippy as hell. As someone who suffered from horrible DTs when I was a raving alcoholic getting sober, this movie kind of fucked with my head at times. Not that it has anything to do with that, except for all of the things constantly moving in this film. I practically felt like I was hallucinating again, and I had to drop my eyes a few times to bring me back into reality. Without seeing any trailers, and basically only knowing it was going to be folk horror, this ended up being exactly what I was expecting, and I ate it up. You can call it "bandwagon" or whatever else you want, and I don't care, because I truly believe Ari Aster is a masterful filmmaker. After Hereditary, he brings us a completely different story. Yet, he still gives us very believable characters with heavy drama before diving deep into horror. I could go on and on, so I'll stop now. The only drawback for me was the lenth of the movie, because I really had to pee 3/4 of the way through this, but I was not leaving my seat.
