I’m extraordinarily envious of everybody who will get to see MIDSOMMAR for the primary time … since you are in for one extremely mondo-fucked up expertise.

MIDSOMMAR will do for Swedish pagan solstice rituals what Psycho did for showers. a psychedelic fairy story about ridding oneself of concern and ache — completely pleasant from its nightmare of a gap to its floral purge of a finale. 💐🌞💐

Had about an hour to course of #Midsommar and Ari Aster certain likes to research grief. He also can shoot the hell out of a film — can’t bear in mind a latest film that was as stunning as this one. Full thoughts fuck.

It sounds cliche to say you have by no means seen something prefer it earlier than, however holy shit. MIDSOMMAR is totally insane in all the very best methods.

MIDSOMMAR: a wickedly humorous romp with Ugly Individuals and Freaky Swedes within the woods, a premium minimize of one among my favourite subgenres (daytime horror), and simply so confidently made. Ari Aster takes the very concept of a sophmore hunch and units it ablaze

I needed to pee for the whole lot of MIDSOMMAR’s runtime and I caught out the entire thing, that’s how good and bizarre it’s

MIDSOMMAR: Psychologically fragile vacationers meet a full blast of Swedish people horror, mounted by Ari Aster on the peak of his atmospheric powers. No director in horror is working at his stage of choreography, the daring of his alienating moments. What a bizarre spell that is.

Issues which can be nice about MIDSOMMAR:
1. Florence Pugh.
2. Henrik Svensson’s next-level manufacturing design.
3. Pawel Pogorzelski’s gradual, regular digital camera that lulls you right into a state of calm.
4. Ari Aster meditating intensely about trauma and loss in essentially the most fucked up methods.

Could I simply say? Midsommar will simply be one among my favourite movies of 2019. @AriAster shouldn’t be solely expert as a horror filmmaker however on this movie emerges as an American reply to Von Trier or Haneke. I had a blast Q&Aing tonight. Thx @A24!! https://t.co/KsMWqjbkQ7

Midsommar is a hilarious rom-com romp and in addition essentially the most disturbing horror I’ve seen in ages. It may be two issues.
