The obvious answer is that Aster made two highly profitable and acclaimed films with the studio, so he earnt the right to indulge himself. On its own, this opening 45-minute section works as a profoundly misanthropic satirical farce about the stresses of contemporary city life, with more visual gags, and more male nudity, than most raucous Hollywood comedies.

Il ne peut plus quitter son appartement et est terrifié à l'idée qu'un inconnu puisse entrer chez lui sans permission. Produced by A24, both Midsommar and Hereditary left audiences shocked, while many commented on Aster’s ability to move away from horror tropes such as jump scares and instead use a creeping dread and increasingly intensity throughout his first two films. Ari Aster Sets All-Star Ensemble To Join Joaquin Phoenix In A24 Film; Nathan Lane, Patti LuPone, Amy Ryan And Kylie Rogers Cast".At its best it combines the exuberantly manic energy of Paul Thomas Anderson’s Punch-Drunk Love with the nightmare logic of David Lynch’s Eraserhead, while at its most tiresome it has tinges of Charlie Kaufman’s painfully contrived Synecdoche, New York. After that it started dragging and it seemed to be trying too hard to make a point or be meaningful.

The rest of the time it’s style and mannerism, with Phoenix not tested as an actor in any way, content to coast through the movie like the Joker on Zoloft. These are the primal scenes in which young Beau is afraid of the bath, and also falls in love with a girl he meets while taking a cruise, played by Julia Antonelli.We also know that Beau is an "extremely anxious but pleasant-looking man" who has a fraught relationship with his overbearing mother and never knew his father, so there are definitely some complexities there. Martin Scorsese was similarly enthusiastic about the film, citing Aster as "one of the most extraordinary new voices in world cinema" and praising Aster for subverting the traditional three-act structure. Mona then appears from the shadows and reveals that she has been alive and spying on him all along his journey. But when car-crash circumstance conspires to make Beau miss his plane, he embarks on a long day’s journey into fright, encountering absurd metaphorical manifestations of his miserable life.
