'mother!' review

And on the sixth day, God made his one mistake – He created man. This is according to the brilliant Darren Aronofsky, whose ‘mother!’ turns out to be the most fascinating exploration of God’s relationship with man. The catch here is, this relationship is scrutinized with some scorn and disdain through the lens of mother nature and it unravels into a weighty misanthropic and admittedly demented parable justifying the backlash and controversy that enveloped it.

Darren Aronofsky's 'mother!' is a fantastical rollercoaster (TIFF review)

Director Darren Aronofsky delivers a quite stunning and refreshing take on the traditional horror story. But one that's definitely not for everyone. — Like any rollercoaster ride, the story of 'mother!' starts simple. A loving couple live in a remote old house. She (Jennifer Lawrence) is remodeling the house while he (Javier Bardem) writes. Or at least, he wants to. He's been without inspiration for some time, and subsequently getting frustrated with her as well.
