  • Clearly, I Am Mother is thematically rich. It's just not dramatically rich.

  • "I Am Mother" is exactly what it seems: a good-looking allegory that postures like it's wrestling with more ideas than it actually is.

  • Overall the movie forces some very intriguing questions and lively discussions. The first two acts are satisfying and engaging. The third act, not so much.
