While I used to be ready for my screening of Midsommar to begin I checked Twitter to go the time. One of the final issues I learn earlier than the film began was somebody saying that they’d liked Hereditary (director Ari Aster’s earlier characteristic) however that the Midsommar script, which leaked on-line in March, was horrible.
Not the most effective factor to learn earlier than a film begins, however because the movie itself would go on to make abundantly clear, studying a script with out seeing the film might be like studying the lyrics to a tune with out the music. How a lot do you get from “Hey now you’re an all-star (6x)” on the web page? That goes double for an Ari Aster film, the place, say, Toni Collette’s face alone says extra a lot greater than phrases alone. Aster’s singularly daring depictions of the horrific and novel compositions do way more for his movies than plotting alone. In an period when nearly each shot has been completed, it’s uncommon that Aster’s ever really feel like a reference or an homage or a duplicate.
That’s doubly spectacular in Midsommar, which manages to really feel totally like a film unto itself even because it’s so closely influenced by Wicker Man that it principally qualifies as “a riff on Wicker Man.” If there was strain to repeat Hereditary, Aster appears to have consciously gone the other way, buying and selling claustrophobic interiors for gauzy vistas and saturated florals.
Florence Pugh performs Dani, and in so some ways she’s an atypical horror heroine — neither damsel nor ingenue nor Joss Whedonian sizzling powerful woman. She’s extra just like the woman subsequent to you sporting a hoodie to a morning lecture. Pugh’s palpable humanity is peculiarly helpful for Aster, in that he can put her in essentially the most weird and excessive conditions and she or he nonetheless appears acquainted.
