Ari Aster’s horrifically disturbing debut feature, HEREDITARY, is truly chilling, but more importantly, it’s a compelling, astute drama that vividly dissects a family’s cracked psychology. In the lead, Toni Collette gives a detailed, go-for-broke performance, and Alex Wolff goes toe-to-toe with her with as much intensity and confidence. And, as shot by Aster’s frequent cinematographer Pawel Pogorzelski, HEREDITARY is a visually luminous work that slowly builds dread and mystery through this inventive artist’s work. HEREDITARY is one of the great family dramas/horror films of the past decade that announced the arrival of a provocative new voice in filmmaking and became a surprise box office hit.
