Midsommar ★★★★½

He's my good friend and I like him, but... Dani, do you feel held by him? Does he feel like home to you?

First viewing of the director’s cut. Most of the added footage simply reinforces what’s already there, especially Christian’s constant attempts at gaslighting Dani. I keep laughing during these scenes because I think Ari Aster’s captured the personification of a douchebag boyfriend to perfection. We’ve all known real guys like this.

I don’t think I’m the first to say (or the last) that Florence Pugh’s Oscar nomination should have been for this film instead of Little Women. I say that while having loved her in Little Women.

Degrees of Separation from Last Movie:
-MidSommar with Florence Pugh
-Was in Little Women with Chris Cooper
-Was in August: Osage County with Ewan McGregor
-Was in Doctor Sleep
