i can see why ari aster said this was an influence for hereditary. kinda wish i saw this before his movie tbh but still an incredible slow burn

an absolute triumph, i like to think those sweeping aerial shots of quiet, harmonic nature shown right after such brutal, horrific scenes were meant to be a case as to why humans have no reason to live on earth. are so grossly discordant with the planet and make zero contribution that we’re parasites. so caught up with our egos and greed fueled lives that we never stop to think about this beautiful place we live in and to give back to it like almost every other animal. if so, i’m definitely stealing that shit.
i never know how to talk about Bergman's films since they're so unlike anything else. complaints I would have about other films are positives in his. all i can say is this story left me broken at 3 am unable to sleep. oh, and I love Ari Aster for realizing my love of family drama movies.
