      I do appreciate some aspects about this films, but one of my biggest issues with this movie is that none of the characters are likable so it's hard for me to care about any of them.

          I liked the movie a lot, but with reservations. Here's my video review: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TgYNT9iaMz0&feature=youtu.be

            Thought it was a great movie with so much symbolism but I didn’t find it to be a horror film by any means.

              Sorry the movie was utter illuminati garbage, the amount of illuminati symbolism and references was disgusting. The burning of the "queens" sacrifices in the pyramid, she then becomes mind controlled by psychoactive drugs and through brainwashing (mk-ultra) and uses her boyfriend and his friends as sacrifices. The cult like group perfectly represents freemasonry and lucerferians. The number 9 being represented throughout the film which is an inverse of the number 6 could also be a reference to 33 degrees in freemasonry. Also, the woman at the beginning says that the dancing festivity was used to do away with the black one. The black one obviously represents Christianity, not the evil Norse god Ari wants us to believe. Dani went from black emotionally to enlightened at the end of the film, a perfect theme of illuminati practices.

                  What was the significance of Pelle always drawing? I know he gave Danni that portrait for her bday but that didnt seem like the sole purpose. At the beginning when Danni asks what he was drawing he quickly hides it. He was literally drawing the table with all the trash. It just doesnt makes sense why they would focus on that. Nobody has addressed it

                    Thank you so much for this video!!!
                    Your thorough explanation sheds a lot of light on the general premise, although I think movies like that are meant to keep you in the dark a little bit and that's why it's all so subjective, yet intriguing. It's very inspiring to see you interpretation of it which actually seems pretty accurate. Love your channel!!!

                      Thank you! I'm sure I got some things wrong or off, but I love trying to decipher what the hidden of films are.

                      The show BRIGHTBURN has pretty much the SAME SYMBOL used in that movie as in MIDSOMMAR

                        ... then go to Hereditary and listen to the final scene music

                              Christian is barely phased when the elder says YOURE PROBABLY RIGHT...about the pube in his drink

                                one thing not making sense... the cartoon of the cutting the pubes and putting menstrual blood in a cup... etc....Christian's drink was a different color ...implying *( also because of the pubes in his drink) that there was menstral blood in the drink ...BUT WHEN CHRISTIAN IS HAVING SEX AND HES DONE..SHE SAYS SHE CAN FEEL A BABY....YOU DONT GET PREGNANT ON YOUR PERIOD....

                                  and at the end ritual did you notice the DRUG from the tree they said would help them have no pain or fear???? The ONE GUY WAS SCREAMING WHEN HE LIT ON FIRE..... OBVIOUSLY FEELING IT.... that was nasty...

                                    I think the guy from the cult might have killed Dani's family because of the painting at the beginning of the show ...showing the horses running from them and to the skull... also the elder saying to everyone welcome...and to dani he says WELCOME HOME ... he wanted to be with Dani *( the guy from the cult.... she got more empathy from him than from Christian...Christian was completely disconnected to her worries...pain....

                                      So....those tubes you spoke of...in the painting at beginning... were coming out of Danis sister and parents...in their death... MORE FORESHADOWING

                                        They said every 90yrs...yet the guy SAID TO DANI hos oarents died in a fire ..... pretty much insinuating that his parents died in the RITUAL.... so which was it 90yrs...or every year???

                                              In lots of cultures women put menstrual blood in men’s food and drink to cause them to fall in love with them.

                                                The "family" "grieving" is not a display of them being one out of "compassion" or "sympathy," it is the result of the "hive mind," effect, which is a symptom of insanity.

                                                This movie is deeply occultic and demonic.

                                                People need to be careful what they place before their eyes... They may think they are just watching a "recreation" of a mystical ritual on film for "articlstic," appreciation, but 1. Don't realize they are being programmed themselves and 2. Are participating (just by watching) in a ritual . . . Hollywood is a deeply aesoteric place filled with people in high places who make putting this aesoteric ancient symbology in movies their "ministry" (more like sinistry...) or calling.

                                                The filmmaker purposely named this character "Christian" for aesoteric meaning... The spirit of anti-Christ is all over this abomination. In an age where the psychedelic is being glorified and pushed as a necessity to be used to open one's self up to higher consciousness, when in actuality, it's really about one putting him/herself into an alpha or hypnotic state so he/she can be enveloped by unclean familiar spirits of old. They pass themselves of as benevolant spirits. Guides, ancestors, etc.

                                                The demon realm, B.K.A. "the supernatural" is nothing to play with. The entities that people are connecting with dispise humanity and want nothing more than to use humans as "avatars" to be used to bring about its own (humanity) erasure.

                                                  It’s interesting how most people found the scene where they sob with Dani to be a sudden change of comic relief, while people familiar with the the culture and people in general who are empaths and sensitive to emotions saw it as very intense and moving, feeling compelled to cry themselves. Also instantly recognizing it as the first time that Dani really feels emotional support and validation.

                                                  Another interesting thing is despite her flaws and dysfunctional traits, Dani managed to respect the culture and her deviant behavior was understandable (having a panic attack during a trip because you were triggered to flashback to recent trauma is common and nothing like peeing on a sacred tree full of the village’s dead loved ones. The British couple lashed out at the people over their suicide ritual and questioned their mortality despite the fact that the ritual was consensual and just a staple part of life for them, failing to recognize how many English and American cultural aspects can seem quite barbaric if your not socialized you find it normal. Dani was uncomfortable primarily due to recent trauma and her tendency to have strong emotional reactions, but she was clearly aware that it was a tradition and not her place to judge, she discussed it privately privately and was more shocked by the event itself, rather than feeling disgust and moral superiority to them).

Especially about needing the intro scene to set up her acceptance into the new "family." That made absolute sense. Thanks for making the video and happy to be a new sub.

                                                          I know I’m a bit late to the party but I finally had a chance to watch this movie and it really pulled me in. So much so that the run time seemed much shorter than it actually is and by my second viewing (I told you it pulled me in), time wasn’t even an issue. I loved the subtle signals and signs throughout. So many layers. I want to buy the Blu-Ray but really would like to have the directors cut but from what I hear that’s supposed to be an Apple TV exclusive at least for now unless I get a copy from another country that includes it.
                                                          All in all love this film

                                                            Movies And Munchies Well if what I read is accurate, I believe the UK release has the director’s cut included and if that on a multi region blue ray, I’m definitely in. I had to do the same a couple of years ago when I was able to track the classic “Blood on Satan’s Claw”. Anyway on subsequent viewings of Midsommar, I really paid attention to the drawings and boy did a get so much more out of the movie. This film just said so many things at once but it’s all interesting things and I don’t mind the multiple viewings.
                                                            I just have to say you did a great job nailing a lot of the little details that add texture to the whole experience.
                                                            Thanks for your analysis and keep up the great work.

                                                          I think its funny that the pagan family burnt Christian. Historically it was generally the other way around LOL

                                                            I think this movie is also largely about how sedatives distracts us from obvious upcoming destructions while society through talks of tradition and religion throws us deeper and tries to make us feel a part of it all those who try to escape or rebel are dealt with and those who stay are consumed by the process. Especially how they even mimic each others response like how people do with social media

                                                              It all seems very analogous to what happens in narcissistic breakups: a battle of back-stabbing and crowd dynamics (cultish, team-him and team-her etc), trying to get your story across while having shit projected onto you (can't speak or move, yet people seeing you as a bear), the female talking any old shit about you and her friends loving it (speaking fake Swedish\gibberish and having it received like it made sense - when making sense is not what is in play), and in the end the female finding true catharsis in the pack, while watching you burn. Scary shit.

A few critics disliked that Dani’s loss of her family (shown in the first 20 minutes of the film) was not referenced again at all later in the movie. Maybe I saw a different movie, because I thought that her major tragedy *was* harkened back to during subsequent parts of the story. At the very least, it was the impetuous that started Dani along the journey of becoming accepted into her *new* family and into a new life with them.

I do agree that it is a metaphor for a relationship ending and I shouldn't have expected it to top Hereditary. Hereditary is a masterpiece. I hope for a part two but I know there won't be one. I don't think Alex Wolff wants to do another. He should have gotten an Oscar nod for playing Peter Paimon.

But now that I can’t stop thinking about it’s symbolism, I actually kind of love this film. I think it’s quite too esoteric for pedestrians but, the imagery and ideas of language and art as means of empathy & understanding is, to me, what makes this a masterpiece.

The plot is, get this, Christian's sister commits suicide. Why? After his 4 friends graduate secondary school, they head off to a Swedish cabin for midsummer as previous years. Strange things happen. Is it his sister's spirit? The one character is named Christian. Amazingly similar. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0339385/

All the characters seem privileged as though coming from America, academia gives them carte blanche to do as they wish. As archeological students we see them seek out the commune with an "I won't take no for answer" attitude for the sake of their grad thesis. But in reality they didn't give a shit about their traditions and culture. The dude vaping constantly(which was ultra rude)and then pissing on the ancestral tree. The other dude raiding the library to snap pictures of books he was specifically forbidden from seeing. It seems like they tried to assert themselves onto the community with a bit of arrogance. When each of deaths occur throughout the movie it happened out of a disrespect to the villagers and their traditions.
