Midsommar ★★★½

Florence Pugh is incredible. For all the ways the film works to horrify and repulse the viewer through mood, imagery and staging, we are always firmly trapped inside Pugh's character's recent past trauma and present nightmare, her communing of anxiety and paranoia supercharging everything which cinematically, is already intensely effective.

That the witchy folk horror elements share equal time with the magnified scrutiny on a crumbling relationship founded on convenient need, performative projections and the gradual realisation of delusional time investment that feels so true to life, is the film's most frightening triumph.
