I’ve made some movies.
There was a moment while watching Midsommar where i wondered if this was what it was like for audiences that got to experience a new piece by Mozart first hand.
Ari Aster is a virtuoso — a filmmaker in complete control of theme, technique, narrative and performance. His attention to detail results in a fully realized world that he deftly fucks with from scene to scene, shot to shot.
He brings a sense of wonder back to the horror genre.
