Siegel™’s review published on Letterboxd:
a relationship breaking down. betrayal by a significant other. the loss of mutual friends. grief and sadness. escape from a toxic relationship, and moving on. or maybe it's an allegory for the war in afghanistan. it is also quite the experience to watch it as a standard scare-fest without overthinking it. ari aster gets the reaction he wants every time, and he evokes it to the most visceral level. it's not horror that makes u afraid to fall sleep at night, it's horror that makes u afraid to wake up. my favorite genre is movies that use horror as the vehicle rather than the destination.
