mother! - 5/10
mother! left me dumbfounded. I'm all for #films that make you think. Midway through I thought, 'this is weird, but intriguing'. By the end, I felt cold and wanted to leave, due it's hostility and brutality.
It's a movie I insist everyone knows about before taking the time to watch it. I won't go into full details, but some scenes at the end are abusive and highly disturbing. Be warned!
Names do not exists here. #JenniferLawrence and other-half #JavierBardem have some uninvited guests in their new home. Decisions are made by Bardem, much to the annoyance of Lawrence.
Events spiral out of control, with everything and anyone seemingly against Lawrence and her needs. A lot of aspects had my head reeling, until the second half hit full throttle madness.
Look at as a test for Lawrence. We're subjected to whatever she sees, constantly following her in very, very close proximity.
mother! will be talked about for many years to come. Performances are outstanding, but effected by the esoteric plot.
To those who've seen it, please share you thoughts!
