This film did NOT click with me the way Hereditary and Midsommar did, only because Beau's chronic passivity is not a mindset I came into the film understanding. An absence of understanding though does not equate to an absence of truth. I sincerely hated this movie when I left the cinema, but the more I thought back on its script and some of the brilliant foreshadowing I developed a deep appreciation for how well it communicates learned helplessness and OCD-fueled anxiety to an outsider. If suffering from crippling anxiety feels like the world is sitting on your chest until you can't even scream, I felt that.
