A visceral, extraordinary masterpiece. Yes, this is a DISTURBING, strange, religious, psychological horror movie. You will love it. You will hate it. It is meant to be divisive. I viewed mother! as an audacious look at the fall of humanity and loss of faith. If there is a God, why is this world falling apart? mother! shows that God only cares about receiving attention but not about helping humanity. He's a narcissist.
So yeah, this message could easily offend religious zealots. Whether you love it or hate it, there's no mistaking that mother! sticks with you long after the credits.
This is the best movie I've seen this year.
More gloomy than stylish, Ryan Gosling's directional debut is dull, aimless, and unintentionally funny. David Lynch seems to be a huge inspiration for the movie, although Lynch's movies, no matter how unclear they were, made you think hours after the movie ended. Lost River is so concerned with its style it completely lacks any substance.
Ranchy, funny, and unbelievably awkward, The Overnight is indie comedy at its very best.
The Green Inferno is a "sort of" remake of the controversial cult classic Cannibal Holocaust. That movie I hated, merely because it shows innocent animals getting slaughtered (for real. No animatronics. We see REAL animals, like a coatimundi, a monkey, and a turtle, get killed onscreen for "shock" value". It's vile.). Nevertheless, that movie made a surprisingly effective statement on human nature and the difference between civilized and "uncivilized" people.
Eli Roth's remake has no statement at all. It's just a disgusting, brutal, grotesque, gross, nasty, despicable, lazy "homage" to the bloody Italian horror movies. The characters are flat, it's not scary, and we learn NOTHING about the cannibalistic tribe. They look a lot more interesting than the main characters. That's for sure.
