Midsommar

a few thoughts:
•white women get away with too much
•the amc new brunswick 18 sucks this is the 4th movie i've seen a row where there's something wrong with the projection
•this ticks so many of my boxes. anxious and unsettling, but still pretty. the score fucks and i love the image of the may queen submerged in flowers in front of the burning house
•on the other hand, i feel like if i think about this for too long i'll hate it. kiarostami said:

"I absolutely don’t like the films in which the filmmakers take their viewers hostage and provoke them. I prefer the films that put their audience to sleep in the theater. I think those films are kind enough to allow you a nice nap […] Some films have made me doze off in the theater, but the same films have made me stay up at night, wake up thinking about them in the morning, and keep on thinking about them for weeks."

the first time i heard that i immediately thought of hereditary, and i feel like it also applies to this
•white women get away with too much
