Storyline

Amidst a wild flat meadow encircled by an Edenic lush forest, a couple have cocooned themselves in a secluded mansion that was not so long ago burned to the ground, devotedly restored by the supportive wife. Within this safe environment, the once famous middle-aged poet husband is desirous of creating his magnum opus; however, he seems unable to break out of the persistent creative rut that haunts him. Then, unexpectedly, a knock at the door, the sudden arrival of a cryptic late-night visitor and his intrusive wife will stimulate the writer's stagnant imagination. Little by little, much to the perplexed wife's surprise, the more chaos he lets in their haven, the better for his punctured male ego. In the end, will this incremental mess blemish, irreparably, the couple's inviolable sanctuary? Written by Nick Riganas

Did You Know?

Trivia

The movie's marketing team came under a good amount of fire after they hired an artist to paint a mural of the film in Sydney, Australia. Apparently, the mural covered up a 20-year-old painting by a local artist depicting animals in a cityscape below the words "it's like a jungle sometimes." This line refers to a song by Grandmaster Flash and The Furious Five.

Darren Aronofsky was embarrassed about the mural being painted over the historic piece of art and apologized on behalf of the ad agency, Apparition Media. A spokesperson for the agency said they were unaware of the iconic nature of the mural and regretted their "terrible mistake."

The agency has since contacted the mural's original artist and offered their help in restoring the artwork to its original form. See more »

If there is a movie theater in hell, this is playing there
21 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

I have been going to the movies for 45 years. This is, hands down, the worst movie I have ever seen. I mean, I hated this movie. Plan 9 From Outer Space and The Room were at least entertaining. This is like being locked in a cell with a stoned college student who can't shut up and thinks that every opinion they have, is the final word on a subject for 2 hours. Jennifer Lawrence should stick to roles that require her to paint herself blue or shoot arrows. Darren Aronofsky wants to be Luis Buñuel but he's closer to Uwe Boll. He cites The Exterminating Angel as the inspiration for Mother! I agree, in the sense that I did feel like one of the dinner guests who can't leave in Buñuel's classic during the course of watching Mother after paying 13 bucks to see this pretentious, heavy handed waste of time. Do yourself a favor, don't go see this movie, you won't get the 2 hours of your life back if you do. When it shows up on The Movie Channel playing at 3 in the morning in a couple of months, don't even set your DVR to record it. There are infomercials about gardening tools on at the same time, that are much more entertaining to watch that this.
