Midsommar ★★★★½

Midsommar is one of the weirdest, most unsettling films I've ever seen. To be fair, that's to be expected from an Ari Aster directed movie. No one else could pull it off. It's not jump scare, in your face horror. It's over two hours of you being uncomfortable. And I absolutely loved it. Florence Pugh is having a hell of a year and she is sensational in this. Will Poulter was hilarious, which felt kind of out of place in a film like this and it somehow works. Aster does a masterful job at building tension and setting up this strange and wicked community that's as dark beneath the surface as it is vivid and bright on the outside.
