Sure, Aronofsky has given us something to talk about, but this unintentionally campy exercise is so gleefully entrenched in its reliance on shock value, it's glaring metaphors can't help but feel pedantic.

mother! is bad art of the highest degree, destined to incite anger and launch substantive and heated conversations, making it a valuable and worthwhile truly terrible pile of garbage.

It's boring, it's pretentious, and absolutely not worth your time or money.

mother! Or - what not to expect when you're expecting.

In the end mother! didn't leave a terribly positive impression on me, but if you're curious it's probably worth it just for you to see how insane it gets.

Mr. Aronofsky needs urgent help for his next script.

Darren Aronofsky's mother! is basically the Batman v Superman of psychological horror.

Too overt to feel meaningful

I understand the allegory Aronofsky is going for here, but that doesn't necessarily mean it was a pleasant experience.

I kind of want to see it again, but I really don't want to see it again... It's just a stress bomb.

The movie burns hot on its own manic energy but stops being fun right around the time mother suffers all the vile misogyny of the Western tradition.

Should we require a satire of misogynistic violence executed in the name of creation, we do not need it from Aronofsky, who is all extremes, no nuance.

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.

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

It's truly an expressive art piece at a surprise auction. Bidding starts at "intriguing" and is sold at "at least it made you think"

... 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]

An ambitious, audacious failure...

Lawrence and Bardem deliver adequate performances, but the plot and story are one big heap of confusion.
