Review: Pretty visuals and solid acting can’t save Ari Aster’s ‘Midsommar’

I’m crying too over the 2 hours of my life I can’t get back having watched this movie… (Picture from Midsommar)

A group of (toxic) friends travel to Sweden to visit a mid-summer festival. What begins as an idyllic retreat quickly devolves (like the plot of this film) into a violent and bizarre experience.

Midsommar starts off strong, then devolves into a muddled mess plot wise. Ari Aster clearly hopes you’re too spellbound by the pretty visuals, solid acting, and explicit violence to notice that this isn’t a very good movie overall.
