Midsommar (2019)

Midsommar was one of my most anticipated movies of the summer. It didn’t disappoint in any way shape or form and is not for the faint of heart. This dark drama has to be one of the best cult movies of all-time. The story doesn’t break far from the gruesome and raunchy stuff that is usually associated with Scandinavia cinema. There’s little to no filters there, and this movie literally has none, which is why it is rated 18A. You may get lost in the story, you may not even see the point of it all, but for me, Dani’s (Florence Pugh) smile at the end made the entire 2:20 twisted journey worth it. This movie is a win for those familiar with the themes of the north but won’t sit well with those who think this is a joyful festival celebrating the midnight sun. 8/10
