Midsommar ★★★★

Ari Aster's Midsommar is an intense reminder that family is more important that anything.

Aster proves that he is not a one hit wonder with this brilliant and crisp cult thriller. Some of the best moments that carry the audience throughout the film are some of his most patient moments. When I say patient, it shows with his editing, camerawork, and direction in the actors. When I say crisp, there is a lot of incredible work in the sound design and sound mixing, some of the year's best work in the ears department. In particular, breathing is so important in symbolizing connectivity, family, and relationships.

I doubt I forget about this movie. It isn't a traditional scary movie. It was more haunting in the sense that scenes and moments will not escape me, for better or for worse (sorry sleep).

Ari Aster should make a comedy movie?
