Midsommar ★★★★★

I had been looking forward to this film for a long time, and it definitely lived up to my expectations.

Midsommar is extremely unsettling and visually enchanting. Cinematically this movie is a masterpiece. Top notch cinematography, sound design, editing.

I have some small nitpicks, I wasn't a huge fan of the comedy coming from the Mark character, the pacing feels a bit off, and some of the characters weren't very fleshed out/well written/acted. The movie is so beautiful to look at and so weird and disturbing that I can't give it any less than 5 stars though.

I wouldn't say this is strictly a horror film. More of a blend of arthouse drama, horror, and comedy. It feels like a disturbing fairy tale for adults.

The acting wasn't amazing all around, but no one was distractingly bad, and Florence Pugh was seriously amazing.

So overall I loved it. A visual masterpiece with great cinematography, tons of interesting and unsettling imagery, superb sound design, and plenty of WTF moments. I wouldn't recommend it to everyone, but if you're into weird and messed up or visually appealing movies you'll probably love it too.
