Pics of the Day

On Saturday I went to a screening of the director's cut of Midsommar at the Alamo Drafthouse in Brooklyn -- only turns out that Saturday also happened to be April 1st aka April Fool's Day and they pulled a switcheroo on us! Twasn't Midsommar at all, but actually Ari Aster's new movie Beau is Afraid that they screened! I am usually violently anti-prank (to this degree captured here by the always effervescent Chris Farley) but this one was okay with me. And anyway it was not a huge surprise -- one had a feeling this might happen beforehand, especially once I got to the theater and the Alamo's hallways were lined with Beau is Afraid posters haha. 

Anyway! As seen above I shared some photos and videos from the Q&A, which saw no less than the actress and delight Emma Stone asking Ari Aster wtf is wrong with him, so check those out. The Q&A has been summed up on various sites, like here. I will be reviewing the movie but not yet, so stay tuned for my thorough opinion closer to the film's release date on April 21st. (And I am totally going to need a second screening myself before that -- let's just say the movie is a lot and leave it at that understatement of the century.) Here's the trailer in case you missed it:
