  • Utter bullshit masquerading as art, allegory or whatever excuse some deluded critics are calling it, 'Mother!' is a loathsome exercise in self-indulgence

    September 15th, 2017

    I'll be honest – I f**king hated 'Mother!', and by that I mean I absolutely loathed it. If you thought 'Black Swan' was pretentious, well you haven't yet seen writer-director Darren Aronofsky's latest self-aggrandizing piece of 'artistic filmmaking'.. The titular character is never named, and as played by Jennifer Lawrence, is the adoring wife of...

  • It made me miss Rosemary Woodhouse

    September 15th, 2017

    Darren Aronfsky is a director I follow, even since Pi. He's daring and unpredictable. I loved Requiem For A Dream and Black Swan, the rest of his opus has left me puzzled or downright annoyed. Mother! belongs to the later. All the element's were there - Rosemary's Baby written by Edward Albee - that's what I thought right up to Michelle Pfeiffer's...

  • My god, mother is one hell of a film.

    September 19th, 2017

    First of all, please don't watch this film if you have trouble understanding metaphors & symbolism.. It's pretty clear that there are quite a number of reviews/rants on this page with people expressing their hate towards the story and how it's been portrayed on screen. It's strange because it looks like they had absolutely no idea what they were w...

  • Thick on analogies and symbolism, to the point of overkill

    September 11th, 2017

    I saw this at TIFF and the point this movie was trying to make became clear fairly early on. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but as the story developed, the analogies and symbolism went into overkill, to the point where their excessive nature diminished what was an interesting story.. The movie is helmed by Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem,...

  • Heavy Ingredients Severely Undercooked

    September 21st, 2017

    I was in the right mood for a smart horror film, they used to be my favorite kind of film until they sort of disappeared, the smart part not the horror. I'm a huge fan of Polanski's The Tenant - it terrified me more than any other film, followed shortly by 2 other Roman Polanski masterpieces, Repulsion and Rosemary's Baby. There are others - Nicol...

  • Aronofsky's mother! will be hated by many, but loved by a precious few

    September 16th, 2017

    100. Horrifying. Just.. horrifying. Aronofsky really got me with this one. Not only did he manage to grab me on an intellectual level, but also on an emotional one. This movie is going to be hated by many, I know that now. But for me, this is, hands down, the movie of the year. Every shot, cut, and scream is perfectly constructed to make an immers...

  • Comedy Of Horrors, perhaps

    September 16th, 2017

    Maybe the intention was to make a terrifying comedy about, about, about...well, I'm not sure. A Mother! like that with an exclamation mark? An artist with an ego bigger than their house? Who knows. I certainly tried to cling on to something but I couldn't. It seems like a terrible confession to make but the truth is I couldn't care less about that...

  • Moab (Mother of all Box-Office Bombs)

    September 16th, 2017

    These days, we live in a world where most things are terrible and don't make any sense. Yet, a film like Mother! can still come along and disgust audiences. A film so off-putting, Rex Reed declared it "The worst film of the century". Make no mistake, Mother! is a profoundly polarizing film. But that is only because it went mainstream. It stars mai...

  • Fierce debate, how wonderful

    September 22nd, 2017

    I have a nagging feeling that the raves come from people in their 20's and/or younger. I maybe wrong but the debate erupting from this movie reeks of youth. Something similar happened with Terrence Malnick's The Tree Of Life. People either loved it or hated it. From my own personal POV the only different between The Tree Of Life and Mother! is tha...

  • Fell Incredibly Short of Expectations

    September 14th, 2017

    I really like D. Aronofsky's films. As a whole, he has a solid corpus.. This film, however, had significant structural problems which shake its foundation as a film.. The film is split into two parts...Why? It's not clear. It's also not clear what the two plot-lines mean. There is not "real" connection to piece them together and the viewer is push...
