[8.50/10] Midsommar [Director's Cut] (2019)

Midsommar [DC] (2019)

Quick Review: Glaring in looks, yet dark in essence, Aster's hypnotically bizarre and truly fucked-up Swedish folk-inspired horror allegory thrives as both an offbeat slow-burner with surreal dread and high shock value, as well as a mental journey of grief and desertion, and though it's more unsettling than scary, "Midsommar" gets under your skin with its visceral grimness, while ravishing your eyes with its visual vividness -- a contrast that mesmerizes, disturbs, confuses, and startles all at once.
