Midsommar ★★★

umm...ok lmao. it's not bad but it's not.. necessary? i think ari aster was so preoccupied with whether he could he neglected to question whether he should (the same thing goes for 2018's hereditary, which actually is much worse than this one thankfully). also you know in high school lit classes when teachers say the "theme" isn't just a word or phrase (grief, toxic relationships, familial conflict)? pretty sure ari was too busy drawing pictures of dicks and bears on fire to pay attention to that bit. i think midsommar is good. i also think ari should just get a therapist already and stop spending millions of dollars to prove he needs one.
