Mother! Movie Review – Darren Aronofsky’s mother is quite possibly the weirdest movie I have ever seen, but it was really good: stars, Javier Bardem and Jennifer Lawrence, and it’s just eerie and quiet and slightly creepy and off-putting, and that’s not a bad thing at all. It just draws you into the movie. Mother is loosely an allegory for the Bible. Now you have Javier Bardem as him once or twice. Maybe his name is actually referred to in there, but for the most part it’s him or he’s Jennifer Lawrence is hurt.
Sometimes she has a name, but more often than not she doesn’t. They live in this house out in the middle of nowhere and from the exterior shots. You don’t see any roads, driveway car or anything else, and one point literally in the film I was like and the heck do they even get there as part of the allegory. If you follow this way of thinking, Javier Bardem is God in the middle of the movie, a stranger arrives, it’s Edie Harris and he’s man, and then a day later you see woman arrive now in between here we see just some really weird things, and it’s explained That Jennifer Lawrence is asking well. Why is he here?
Why did he show up and Javier Bardem it’s like he came to see me okay, before Michelle Pfeiffer shows up his woman. You see that edy Harris has this. This wound on his side, where his ribs are. This only makes sense, though, when you see the entire movie in sequence, because then, once you realize is okay, Edie Harris is Adam, a rib is removed, and then the next day, Michelle Pfeiffer, shows up as his wife Eve a few days later, their two sons show Up chaos ensues and really at that point the movie starts to descend into a craziness. All the while, though, as Jennifer Lawrence is trying to fix up her home.
Weird things are happening, or at least she imagines weird things are having Darren. Aronofsky really set a good creepy tone in his film because as it’s going through, you just have this this bit of shivers that are having this foreboding of something bad is gon na happen. But I don’t totally know what it is now honestly at the beginning, or even throughout the movie. I didn’t really see the allegory playing out. It was only until afterwards I was started to discuss and do some research on the film, but that’s when it really came to light.
I’M not gon na give anything away, but the last 20 to 30 minutes of the movie are just bonkers, and that’s why I say it’s probably one of the weirdest movies I’ve ever seen. Some of the other weird movies I’ve seen is Swiss Army man with Paul Dano and Daniel Radcliffe. If you’ve seen that, that is just bizarre, it is crazy and it’s fun, but I’m not sure I can totally recommend it. I mean because if I do, then you might think I’m a little off in the head, which maybe I have it’s weird and it’s it’s funny in parts. But it’s just disturbing also and it’s hard to explain, because if you’ve seen it, then you know and if you haven’t you’re like huh and well check it out for yourself.
If you want to Swiss Army me, the other, probably it’s definitely in the top three of the weirdest movies. I’Ve ever seen is rubber. Now it’s an independent film in the whole premise of that is this tire gains consciousness, comes to life and starts killing people Yeah right, weird, the tire doesn’t speak, but it attacks, and there is some great fourth wall breaking in that film, so another one. If you’re into weird, if you want to see something, just bizarre check out rubber now, what better Munchie would you pair with the movie mother than mother’s cookies right, so I got some circus animals and really, why would I get circus animals because the last twenty to Thirty minutes of the movie is a circus. It is just bizarre and crazy and what the crap is going on and honestly, it feels almost like a clay just an apocalypse, a downward descent into hell.
I don’t even know what else, but it is. It is truly as bizarre as a circuses, so hey circus animals right, I’m not totally a fan of the circus animals for Mother’s cookies. What I love are the ice dopes you, you can get them small. You can get them big, but what they are is they are delicious, can’t go wrong with the mother’s iceboat meal. I love these hope.
You do too. Mother is visually stunning, well well written and directed, but it’s odd and it is certainly not for everybody. There is violence, there is language, there is sex, there is nudity and, above all it just jacks with your head, and so, if you’re, not in too weird, it’s just steer clear of it because you’re not going to enjoy it at all. Now, I’m not sure I would watch this over and over again, but I’m not sad that I saw it. It was an experience and sometimes hey that’s what movies are supposed to be right.
I give mother 4 out of 5 couches.
