Midsommar ★★★★★

One of the most iconic daylight folk-horror film. Horror usually saves the nightmares for the shadows, but in this film, Aster drags his demons kicking and screaming into the light. It is elevated by incredible cinematography from Pogorzelski. Midsommar makes use of gore and graphic elements that are disgusting and horrible to look at. All in all, the cast of Midsommar elevate the film as much as the direction, writing and cinematography do. I was never, even for one second, feeling the length. I found it so unsettling and sinister. It's filled with ideas, images, and feelings that will stay with you long after the credits roll. And it's worth every second. It gets under your skin in a really creepy way.
