Midsommar ★★★★½

Just saw the Unrated Directors Cut, and it really did remedy my primary issues with the theatrical cut. In the theatrical cut, I was peeved about a number of plot points which seemed, to me, to be forced and out of nowhere. In this version of the film, though, Aster fleshes out each of the plot points in question (Dani and Christian's relationship, the whole PhD thing, as well as some others) to the point that they were no longer any issue for me.

I liked the original cut quite a bit, but I liked this one even more! If anyone is on the fence about this film after seeing it when it originally came out, I would encourage them to see this cut. It feels more complete, and ends up being more compelling as a result.
