Midsommar ★★★★★

I’ll never forget watching Ari Aster’s debut film Hereditary last year at Sundance. I wasn’t planning on seeing it originally, because the logline didn’t grab me. I found out some friends worked on it as it was filmed in my home state of Utah, so I thought I might catch it – just because they worked on it doesn’t mean it’s good. Then I found out A24 picked it up, I went to the very next screening, and lo and behold – Hereditary was my favorite film of 2018. It completely caught me off guard, and getting another film from Aster just a year later feels like an embarrassment of riches that I will happily bathe in. Midsommar is going to be near impossible to top as my favorite of 2019. It is another horrifying, unsettling and unrelenting masterpiece from Aster.
