This post contains spoilers for Midsommar.
The most insane scene arrives near the end, when Christian (a fearless Jack Reynor) submits himself to a ritualistic sexual ceremony with Maja (Isabelle Grill), a girl who magicked him into falling in love with her while Midsommar is a freak buffet of gloriously disturbing moments. It really is, also by writer-director Ari Aster’s standards, a scene that is breathtakingly wild.
Christian, who may have invested the moments prior to this ceremony tripping for an herbaceous, psychoactive beverage, stumbles his means to the space. Maja will there be waiting around for him, completely nude, surrounded by nude females through the commune. She’s spent the previous few times attempting to make Christian fall in love with her with all sorts of crazy tricks (including, although not limited by, cooking a cake along with her pubic hairs inside it, which a naive christian later consumes). Now attracted to her, Christian strips down and starts the ceremony. But because it continues he understands that the ladies around Maja are pressing by themselves and mimicking Maja’s every noise. One girl also gets close, grasping Christian’s face in her own arms whilst the deed gets done. It’s incredibly creepy, but in addition hilarious in its strangeness; Midsommar is, from the entire, saturated in these so-crazy-they’re-funny moments, but this scene is without question house towards the most mirth that is unintentional.
