Ηλσι (Louis-Charles)’s review published on Letterboxd:
Rather than adding new scenes, the director’s cut seems to actually extend existing one. Scenes which Aster had to cut for different reasons, but which doesn’t make the story drag in any way. Those scenes also helps to flesh even more Dani and Christian’s relationship. I honestly didn’t feel like 20 minutes were added. If you’re hoping for more gore however, you’ll be quite disappointed.
Other than the that, the film remains just so damn great. It really is a fairy tale; a tale about realizing that some people aren’t good for us and that were far better without them. The last shot will always bring me to ecstasy.
Long live the May Queen!🌸💐🌼
