Give “Mother!” a Miss

2017_09 13 Mother!

Kyle Smith at National Review calls it “a Biblically-infused version of torture porn” that “may be the most vile and contemptible motion picture ever released by one of the major Hollywood studios.”

“Mother is the kind of film that makes you want to walk out, demand your money back, then file for a restraining order that would forbid the director from coming within 500 miles of any filmmaking equipment again. The following groups of people should take care to avoid Mother at all cost: pregnant women, those with nervous constitutions or heart conditions, and anyone who happens to be burdened with good taste.”

    I read a famous movie critic called this the worst movie of all time.

  2. Good review by Anthony Sacramone:
    “mother!”: An Edgy Horror Flick or Just a Horror?

    “Writer-director Darren Aronofsky’s lastest film has engendered extreme reactions from both filmgoers and critics. And by ‘both filmgoers,’ I mean both of them: mother! fared poorly at the box office this past weekend, bringing in a mere $7.5 million, which isn’t enough to keep the average Hollywood A-lister in Zoloft.”
