Midsommar

I kinda loved this? It’s definitely overlong and slightly meandering, but it’s also beautiful, hypnotic, truly shocking and surprisingly uplifting (outside of those first ten minutes, which is doing grief-horror stuff similar to what Hereditary was doing - not complaining though, it almost makes this the Up of horror films). Aster continues to be able to combine real life horrors with full on nightmares - and, unlike Hereditary, I didn’t have a thousand people telling me this was the best horror film in years or decades or centuries! beforehand, so that was nice.
