Here's my mother! review. I jump into mother! non-spoilers before the break then jump into mother! Spoilers right after the credits.
No matter what Aronofsky touches, it is a polarizing experience. mother! is no exception. And here’s my best advice – go in as clean as you can. I’m going to talk broadly about it before the credits, but if you have any interest, stop now and I’ll be here when you get back.
mother! follows the suitably named “Mother” played by Jennifer Lawrence as she works on restoring the house of her lover, Him, played by the amazing Javier Bardem. I guess the best way to sum this up is IMDB’s misleading but apt description:
“A couple’s relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence.”
