Bradon and Ro could barely wait for opening weekend to pass so they could have a more in-depth chat about this twisted little folk-horror. Ari Aster's Midsommar leans into pagan rituals and white people with issues for its thematic launching pad.

You can read Ro's full written non-spoiler review for Midsommar to find out what she thought of the film as a whole. If you're ready to talk details Brandon and Ro breakdown some of the moments and plot devices that stood out the most. Discuss how Aster uses trauma in unique and visually captivating ways and seems to be fixated on exploring trauma and tribalism.  

Ro and Brandon are both convinced that everyone who should die not only does but brought that shit on themselves. Ari Aster's Midsommar has nothing to hide and that's what makes it such a riveting watch. You're either going to hate it or love it.  

Florence Pugh needs to be on your watchlist because this actor isn't afraid to ugly cry (or scream). 

Midsommar released wide July 3, 2019, and it's one best experienced in a theater.
