*the actual review*

I haven’t been so shaken and moved by a film in a long time. Midsommar entranced me in its surreal cult world from the moment it begun, with it keeping me locked in to my seat, heart pounding constantly. I’ll definitely do a more in-depth, fully formed review in the future (especially after a rewatch), however all I would like to say now is that this is an essential experience, and also that visually this is one of the masterclasses that I’ve seen in that field in every single aspect. Colourisation, cinematography, symbolism, visual storytelling, editing, everything harmonises beautifully in terms of the raw visual experience, making this film a must watch just on the pure technical side alone.

I’m tearing up thinking about this film fuck
