Midsommar ★★★★★

Ari Aster is an absolute madman. I wasn't sure if he would top Hereditary and that runtime did put me off a bit, but I was in this for every second. A slow-burning, gorgeous horror that will definitely divide audiences, but I'm so happy a film like this was allowed to be made. A pure hit of the director's relentless vision. Aster continues to grow as a filmmaker, mastering long shots and incredible camera work in only his second film. There's a lot of ambiguity and questions from this, but it made me only want to Rewatch it straight away. My current film of the year and I cannot wait to see what Aster does next. Some of the images this film presented won't leave my head for a long time.
