Midsommar ★★★

I applaud the atmosphere, immersion, and creativity in the way it gets under your skin, but by the time it ended I felt like it didn’t land on a certain message, or at least didn’t articulate what it all meant well enough (which sucks since it’s supposed to be an incredibly personal film to Aster). 
I disagree with how he portrays disabled people as objects of horror and people with bipolar disorder to be these freaks who kill their parents (he never even revisits the parents or the sister like huh). How he portrays his subjects is very superficial for a film thats made now and while it’s never boring and really kept me engaged, the film isn’t well articulated with what it has to say about anything.
