Midsommar

The cinematic overture before the opening credits was a creative tone for this psychological thriller…

I am so confused and traumatized.  What the f#*! did I just watch? This sentiment was shared by the two friends surrounded by a cloud of cigarette smoke standing next to my car. With insanely beautiful cinematography and hauntingly beautiful music, I went around the maypole with Dani’s (played by Florence Pugh) grief and still remain confused. Not sure if it was the trauma, confusion, or desire to understand; however, I will wait until it streams to see if I can dissect what the f#*! I just watched.  PS: After the cast saw the completed film, they sat in silence for ten minutes.  So, I don’t feel alone in my confusion.  

MIDSOMMAR

From the desk of Dr. Dion Metzger: 

What the @&?! did I just watch? Ari Aster, who both wrote and directed “Midsommar”, did not disappoint. Although not as frightening as his “Hereditary” debut in 2018, this film is was unsettling, never boring and a trip (pun intended). The cinematography and score took us on a chilling ride. Aster wrote this film after a break-up so there is close attention paid to loss and catharsis. Florence Pugh (who played the main character Dani) gave a stellar performance….those cries and yells, whew. If my mouth is open, once the credits start rolling…job well done. Ari Aster, I will be looking for your next film.
