Hereditary ★★★★½

almost everyone who watched this with me was on their phone for half of it and then had no idea what was happening by the end. maybe pay attention to the "slow" parts at the start where "nothing is happening" and movies will not be so confusing later when they draw back to earlier moments! i don't know i'm just really disheartened and alienated by everyone's seeming inability to stay off their phones anymore. i love watching movies with other people but it becomes a pestering annoyance when no one can pay attention and has to have everything re-explained later. this is less about hereditary cause i've already seen this 3 times and more just about the general state of home movie-watching that i've noticed over the years
