    Very bizarre. Uncomfortable and hard to watch at times, but I thought it was good.

    The 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.

    One of the worst movies ever made in the history of cinema. This film is somehow perfectly dreadful in every doesn't get a single thing right. Jennifer Lawrence should be fined for acting this atrocious.

    From 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.
