Saw Midsommar on Netflix. It's not quite a traditional horror film despite some gruesome scenes, but it relies more on what people do and why rather than on shocks. It doesn't really convince me because that 'why' aspect is not clear enough and because some of the themes I had already seen in Star Trek: The Next Generation episodes. It didn't help that Netflix didn't have English subtitles, including on the Swedish dialogue, and that the beginning of the film was filmed so dark that I still don't know what happened.

Some reviews I read afterwards mention some more troubling aspects of the story and they could be right. Some also mention the film being way too brightly lit and that's totally not the film I saw.
