This movie is for people who are thinkers if you are not and want 2 hours of mindless drivel do not see this movie. The actors did a superb job delivering this very original material.
Overall a very thought provoking movie and it's symbolism was intriguing and deep. However, there were a few parts that lasted longer than I felt were needed but a good movie overall.
When the film leaves the realm of the impolite or even criminal for something far more extreme, it achieves a level of excess that makes the whole enterprise increasingly cartoonish, rather than just awful.
Darren Aronofsky’s churning fever dream mother! is a devouring and restless experience: a creative surge that’s like the lancing of a boil, releasing a torrent of despair and disgust for the greedy chaos of society today as well as a self-loathing portrait of the artist as an emotional succubus.
This is a tale that, like any number of fanciful genre outings, both pulls you in with its intriguing central dramatic situation and pushes you out with some mightily far-fetched plot contrivances.
