mother! will leave you destroyed and slightly numb but it is certainly worth the price of admission.

Part horror story, part existential ponderance and ever doing cinematic backflips, mother! is a movie that certainly won't be everyone's cup of tea. But those who see it will be held rapt from the very first frame to the film's fiery crescendo.

The film is murky from attic to basement. If it has a saving grace, it's that it's funny sometimes, like an absurdist play, and equally prone to violence and collapse.

[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.

It's an allegory about mankind and the destruction of the environment. If you watch the movie with that message in mind, it's thought-provoking if not your cup of tea. But if you go in totally blind, you might just feel grossed out an annoyed.

When you eventually see this you may hate it, but you can't say it isn't brilliant.

Here is Darren Aronofsky's most powerful film to date, and the same goes for Jennifer Lawrence.

With its desperate -- would that it were ironic -- titular exclamation point, Aronofsky announces nothing more than bombast, and delivers exactly on that promise.

Mother grabbed me from the beginning, and from my interpretation of the movie, I really liked it...I can see this movie aging very well for me.

If it's silly as biblical allegory it's potent as a comedic parable about the selfishness and egoism of the process of (male) artistic creation...

At the very least, though, you won't be bored.

In a climate where we are quick to diminish and disown artists for forcing their brutal honesty on audiences, "Mother!" is a challenge worth facing.

The film is ugly, disturbing, and not for everyone -- it's also fascinating, thought-provoking, and rich with religious allegories.

This isn't just a haunted house story; it's more elemental than that.

mother! begins rather slowly, but by the end it's a swirly, surreal, shockingly disgusting head trip that is pelting you with allegories and freakiness.
December 5, 2017
Aronofsky is once again challenging audiences in the maniacal, extreme way he has perfected. Prepare for unabashed, unforgettable madness

Everyone thinks they're Mother in this. Most people aren't self-aware enough to realize they're the horde.

... mother! gives the feeling of being a first script treatment, full of ideas and symbols, but that would have to be polished and be more concise. [Full review in Spanish]
