Some time has passed since I got home from the movies and, hey, I've thought about what I'm about to tell you. Which is: I am a big, huge fan of high-quality *prosthetic* human head destructions on the big screen.
Folks, I love watching heads get blowed up. Factor in that Midsommar contains multiple head explosions (carried out as well as shot in various fun and creative ways - entirely during the day!!) and maybe you will understand why I gave a movie longer than 120 minutes three big ones.
I apologize to you all for abandoning my core values re: runtime.
Additionally, Ari Aster be like: "You idiots think I can only film naked old people at night? Well check THIS out"
(8/6: added a star)
