Now while I do mention "mother!", it is not so much that this tells the same story. But this tells a story that has so many layers to it, that may or may not annoy you. Something that did happen with mother too. And this also has things happening that are not "normal". Both movies tend to do things quite crazy. Add to that some violence and social commentary and end of the world scenarios ... not to mention that ending. Or that older (wise?) man and ... well you could actually talk about any other character too.
Everyone is representing someone and the movie itself warrants multiple viewings. That being said, it doesn't mean you have to like it. And it's not about being intellectual or anything, it's about taste and what you want to have in the movies you watch. So if you are into something that challenges you, this is the movie to watch ... still not pleasant or entertaining in the usual sense of the word
