Full disclosure, I will not spoil ‘mother!‘ (but you can read our review here), I think it’s incredibly vital to the film and the filmmakers that most of the film stay under wraps. For better or worse, I went into the film as blind as I could and left…blind with fury.

Now, I’ll admit wholeheartedly that surrealist films and those that get lost in their own message and metaphors infuriate me. Not because I don’t get it, but because of the people that applaud and celebrate these films like they are the second coming of some long-lost messiah. These are films, yes, and they deserve to be celebrated, but don’t look toward your nose at those that enjoy films that involve The Avengers assembling, or men dressed as bats beating up clowns. All film deserves to be celebrated, so what makes ‘mother!’ worthy of discussion and this essay? »
