Good morning my lovely followers! Today’s post is going to be different to what I would normally write, I’m actually reviewing a film, Mother directed by Darren Aronofsky. Now I know this has been out for like 3 years now, but I’ve literally only just watched it (it’s been on my Netflix list for ages).
My overall rating is 3.5 out of 5 stars.
My initial thought while the credits were rolling was “what the f**k did I just watch” I was so confused with the film, with the plot, with the whole thing…
The acting was amazing, Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem were excellent, they flourished in their roles, especially Jennifer Lawrence, I thought I would struggle to see her as someone else other than Katniss Everdeen but she portrayed Mother so well.
The symbolism throughout the film was just something else, it was completely bonkers, and the way it was portraying it almost like a cult is something I have never seen done in a film before…
I’m not actually sure what I thought of this film on the whole, but one thing is for sure I’ve never seen anything like it and I doubt I will again.
If you’ve watched Mother! let me know in the comments so we can talk about it!! Em xxx
