Midsommar ★★★★

Ari Aster’s ‘Midsommar’ was today’s Halloween pick, and I can happily say, this film is still vomit-inducingly brilliant. Or Pu(gh)ke-worthy...no? 

Okay. 

Pugh persists; she purges through pained panic-attacks, ditches douche-boyfriend, plunges headfirst into this ever-smiling, grotesque cult, one that’s water-washed in vibrant colour & one that collectively sings, and hums in orgasmic ecstasy ( literally, if you know, you know). 

Midsommar is a vivid spectacle; sharp, and most of all, unforgiving. This film pulsates. It’s brutal and bloody. Beautiful and bizarre. It’s a deliciously devious offering from Aster, he created a microcosmic world of horrors designed to flourish in daylight, right until its grand floral finish. That’s no easy feat.
