‘Mother!’ (2017)

‘Mother!’ is actually one of the worst films I have ever seen. Don’t be fooled by other critics, art it is not. In the climax I couldn’t stop myself from laughing, it was so ridiculous. This is such a heavy handed biblical alegory/ metaphor done in the least subtle way possible. This could be a career ending film, first the god awful ‘Noah’ and now this. Man-splaining womanhood at its worst. Can’t wait to hear the mental contortions, explanations of men who love this film explaining it to women. The director in trying to depict the ‘violent sacrifice’ of women has himself created a deeply abusive film towards women. Depiction may not be endorsement but the violence depicted here is laughable and gratuitous. The first half is not terrible but the ending is as if a teenage angst boy who hates the world wrote a bible inspired wet fever dream about his woman hating/using guilt. How could academy award winning Jennifer Lawrence degrade herself as an actress and a woman to make this film. My response to this film can be summed with ‘ugh I get it!’ Enough. 1/10
