Midsommar ★★★★★

A lot of people are going to misunderstand Midsommar as an exploitationist, "woah dude that was so fucked up haha lol" kind of movie, instead of the profound, compelling meditation on grief, mortality, and human connection that it really is.

Hereditary feels like a run up for this film. The camera movement is creative yet deliberate, always in the aid of telling the story instead of that film's tendency to show off. The sound design is impeccable, bordering on ASMR at times.

Also surprisingly the competition of the year, who knew?
