Rex Review

Very underappreciated film in recent years. All metaphors and deeper meaning aside, Mother! takes you for a ride of a lifetime, which seems like a cliche movie review thing to say, but watch this shit and you will know what I mean.  If you are looking for well crafted, intense experience, you came to the right place.

Mother! (2017) Drama, Horror, Mystery | 121min | September 15, 2017 (United States) 6.6
Director: Darren AronofskyWriter: Darren AronofskyStars: Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Ed HarrisSummary: Amidst a wild flat meadow encircled by an Edenic lush forest, a couple have cocooned themselves in a secluded mansion that was not so long ago burned to the ground, devotedly restored by the supportive wife. Within this safe environment, the once famous middle-aged poet husband is desirous of creating his magnum opus; however, he seems unable to break out of the persistent creative rut that haunts him. Then, unexpectedly, a knock at the door, the sudden arrival of a cryptic late-night visitor and his intrusive wife will stimulate the writer's stagnant imagination. Little by little, much to the perplexed wife's surprise, the more chaos he lets in their haven, the better for his punctured male ego. In the end, will this incremental mess blemish, irreparably, the couple's inviolable sanctuary? —Nick Riganas
