    I enjoyed reading your review - it's refreshing that not every home video review praises films that have otherwise generally received good reviews. I'll be picking up the 4K disc version, when it's released in Italy in november. I also includes the Director's Cut, which I haven't seen. I like the cover for that release - it's so much better than the US theatrical poster!

    Martin Scorsese enthused about Midsommar in the latest edition of EMPIRE magazine: "The editing, the camera moves - glorious! And the image of her in the flowers? My God!"

    Nice review Sam. The lead actress was excellent. I liked the movie, great visuals, could have been about twenty minutes shorter though. The original Wicker Man still can't be beat in the pagan movie genre.

    I hope the US special edition looks like that!

    It IS beautifully shot. And the cinematography is beyond criticism. It's NOT a good movie.

    Agreed, Pugh is awesome. And it needs an editor, not an indulgent 30 minute longer version!

    I have never seen Wicker Man, it's on my to do list!

    For more amazing Florence Pugh, search for Lady Macbeth (2016). Awesome performance in an excellent film. The story has nothing to do with Shakespeare, but with the Russian story, Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk, set in England.

    I interpret the fact that Sam didn't like it to bode well for me possibly enjoying it. :welcome:

    I'm definitely tempted to buy it on iTunes, since the extended version is included, and the price is very reasonable, at $15. Movies like this can be a matter of mood. You need to be in the right one to appreciate it, sometimes.
