    Holy Moses

    ★★★

    This marks my last review before I head to boot camp. I look forward to getting back on Letterboxd with my fellow film geeks at the beginning of March. Stay safe everyone.

    The dialogue and acting could've used a little work, but otherwise "Holy Moses" is a fun concept executed well. Strong Coen Brothers vibes as it pulls heavily from Bible stories and plops them right into the modern age, much to the bewilderment of our characters.

    ★★★★

    Angst is definitely among the best 20th century psychopath character studies that I've seen. I prefer the more recent ones that are less sensational and more well-informed (considering that psychology is always making advances in our understanding of antisocial personalities) but that doesn't take away the fact that Angst delivers exactly what it's trying to. The character is written carefully, and Erwin Leder's portrayal is engrossing to say the least.

    In reality though, I'm not sure I even agree with that sentiment. I definitely can't detect any malicious intent in the representations…

    Midsommar

    ★★★½

    Ari Aster's approach to the horror genre is intoxicating. I really appreciate how he is intent on giving the audience a harrowing experience rather than just a bunch of jump scares. Just like Hereditary, Midsommar puts the audience through all the emotions. Grief is perhaps an emotion that Aster is unmatched in conveying in all its rawness on screen.

    In the end though, it doesn't always end up feeling like horror. Midsommar is simply not unsettling for me, as almost…
