Jake Hageman’s review published on Letterboxd:
So I love it even more. I never saw the standard theatrical cut, but this director’s cut is just superb. But one small detail stuck out and I can’t stop thinking about it.
So when Connie asks Dani/Christian how long they’ve been together, Christian replies a little over 3 and a half months and Dani corrects him, saying just over 4 years.
BECAUSE THATS HOW LONG DANI AND CHRISTIAN WOULD HAVE BEEN DATING IF CHRISTIAN DUMPED HER WHEN DANI’S FAMILY DIED. LIKE HE WAS READY TO THROW THAT STATISTIC OUT!! WOW.
There are so many more examples of this atention detail that I could give, this is just one that stuck out. Ari Aster is just on another level. Thank you, A24, for giving your directors creative freedom over their movies!
