Midsommar ★★★★½

Been thinking about it for days. Like Ari Aster's other movies I wouldn't say its particularly scary. It can be quite disturbing with some of its imagery but overall its more intense than frightening.

As everyone else has said, this is first and foremost a breakup movie. It's a deep metaphorical dive into the processing of loss. How it feels to be in denial at the end of a relationship. The horror of losing someone. The idea that losing this one person means losing everything. In this way Midsommar might be one of the best breakup movies I have ever seen.

There are scenes in this movie that, if you have experience with the drugs that they are doing, are incredibly intense. The accuracy in which they are portrayed visually is stunning and the actor's give perfect performances. I also have to give props to the dialogue. I never felt like a character spoke in a way that was unreasonable given the situations.

I can't wait to see this movie again.
