Midsommar
(2019)

Don't waste your time and money.
This film is well-executed, but it is not actually a horror film. I do not watch horror films, usually. If I had read more reviews, I don't know if I would have been warned about this film properly. I know a few artists, and one of the problems with them is that they mistake being unconventional for a virtue. Being out of the ordinary does not make something valuable. You do not really feel a lot of dread or fear watching this film. Other reviews have said this. I was falling asleep until the first death occurred.

This film defiles sexuality in a way that the worst pornography cannot. I am not against some occasional pornography, either. I am not a prude. I am not shocked by gore. This film uses it to defile human life. It is a horrible film. It is an assault upon the audience. It should never have been made. It is sick and degenerate. Thinking about what this film might mean makes one feel sick at heart. I don't believe there was any underlying artistic meaning, however. I think it has nothing to say when examined as a whole. "Piss on a canvas" would show more respect for the viewer.

I am worried that by saying these things, some of you will reward the makers of it with your money. Don't. If you have already done so, I think you should go back to the theater and ask for your money back. If they give me mine back, I am going to burn it.

I hope Ari Aster's career fails. He does not deserve to have one.
