Critic Reviews for Scary Mother

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (1)

  • The vast, largely unmapped terrain of a middle-aged mom's creative life gets a witchily weird, uncompromisingly assured showcase in Georgian director Ana Urushadze's exhilaratingly offbeat oddity.

  • Scary Mother proves delightfully off-kilter, the dead seriousness of the social setting and the family conflict pierced by humorous or absurdist moments.

    February 14, 2019 | Full Review…
  • I wish her 'madness' were taken to those extremes where we would be able to address Scary Mother as a creepy film.

    January 29, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Scary Mother is a new film that formally sets itself apart from the glut of recent neo-realist cinema emerging from Georgia.

    November 18, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Although it's [director] Ana Urushadze's debut film, it seems more like the work of a veteran director who controls the medium perfectly. [Full review in Spanish]

    September 13, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Scary Mother is a quietly riveting film that is richly layered with themes of identity, traditional gender roles, sacrifice, and hypocrisy filtered through the lens of a middle-aged mother of 3.
