Midsommar ★★★

Aster undoubtedly has a masterpiece in him somewhere, but this isn't it. Much like with Hereditary, a lot of good qualities, but the film never seems to quite congeal into a satisfying whole. From a technical perspective, this film is mesmerizing, but the script probably needs something of a rethink. Aster is definitely a director to watch and it will be interesting to see what he does as he matures and begins to imbue his films with a little more life experience.
