Jon, Will, and Julia escape the daylight and discuss Midsommar, the latest “horror” film from director/writer Ari Aster and A24. Yes, we’re doing another bonus review on an A24 movie. We start with a spoiler-free overview of our thoughts, then we dive into spoiler-filled deep dive of the film. Midsommar stars Florence Pugh, Jack Reynor, William Jackson Harper, Will Poulter, and Vilhelm Blomgren.

Theme music: “Gassed” by Bobby Krlic from the Midsommar soundtrack.

    I didn’t catch all the religious allegory stuff, but Jon made a pretty good case for it. I’m a B- like Julia, took long!

  • Consider the Mobster says:

    Without getting into spoilers, I found the “push” scene toward the end to be seriously messed up, because what happened was completely against the character’s control.

  • Yavin says:

    Awesome discussion. I truly loved this movie and fully adored Pugh’s performance.

  • Phoebe says:

    This was my favorite film discussion from you all so far this year. Made me want to watch the movie all over again with your thoughts in mind. I loved the portrait of grief, the shared pain scene, but also that beginning…such a perfect gut punch to kick things off, in the roughest way.
