Mother! is what happens when a dude has an idea he thinks is brilliant and no one checks him on it.March 1, 2021 | Full Review…
[Darren] Aronofsky wants mother! to have the intensity and inner logic of a sweaty nightmare. But it's a fake cinematic fever dream-the kind made by a director so self-conscious that he's always checking his own temperature.March 8, 2018 | Full Review…
When you eventually see this you may hate it, but you can't say it isn't brilliant.February 1, 2018 | Full Review…
Ultimately, you may be left pondering not so much the allegory as to why [Darren] Aronofsky would want to push not just his audience but his girlfriend through such an extreme wringer.October 11, 2017 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
If this is Aronofsky's acknowledgement of those he's hurt in his life, then it is grossly remorseless.October 4, 2017 | Full Review…
It doesn't all work; long stretches, in fact, don't play at all. But it's formally impressive and deeply disturbing, and the mere fact that it exists at all is a testament to either Aronfsky's salesmanship, Lawrence's star power, or both.September 27, 2017 | Full Review…
Audience Reviews for mother!
Sep 19, 2018Very bizarre. Uncomfortable and hard to watch at times, but I thought it was good.Super Reviewer
Aug 04, 2018The first half of the film works. It's a home invasion thriller that is supposed to piss you off, and it does. What happens in the last 30 minutes of the movie may be some kind of metaphor for whatever, and it's certainly gutsy to have a film go off the rails entirely like this, but any sane viewer should probably just laugh at how pretentious and ridiculous it all is. Is it memorable, entertaining and maybe even fascinating? Absolutely. Is it artsy-fartsy bullshit too? Oh hell yes.Jens S Super Reviewer
Aug 02, 2018One of the worst movies ever made in the history of cinema. This film is somehow perfectly dreadful in every category....it doesn't get a single thing right. Jennifer Lawrence should be fined for acting this atrocious.Stephen S Super Reviewer
Mar 18, 2018From writer/director Darren Aronofsky comes Mother!, an incredibly confusing piece of artistic douchebaggery. It starts out as a psychological thriller about a couple living in a house in the country who are visited by a mysterious stranger, but then it quickly devolves into a heavy handed allegory about creation. And as an allegory, there's not really a plot or developed characters; which makes the film extremely hard to follow and get a grasp on. Additionally, the pacing is so fast that the audience is left feeling disoriented much of the time. Mother! is a chaotic mess that's just not worth the aggravation.Dann M Super Reviewer
