A very good movie

Following the polarizing responses towards this movie, I wasn't really sure what to expect but since I have always been a fan of Darren Aronosfky's work, I was still really eager to check it out. Well, I have to admit it, it was a difficult movie to read as the whole thing was just so bizarre and chaotic and I can imagine that not everyone might be able to connect with this picture. But that was also the real beauty of it, the fact that you could give it pretty much any meaning you want. Indeed, someone might think that it is a story about motherhood, some others might say it is about how chaotic our society and way of life have become. As far as I was concerned, it felt like a fascinating and endless nightmare, the way everything seemed familiar and yet odd at the same time and the way the main character seemed to be a mere spectator with no control over the events happening in front of her. Their world kept shifting, unfolding and exploding with some continuous random small or big events which felt really reminiscent to a nightmare, at least, to me, and this process was quite spellbinding to behold. Anyway, even though it might not be Darren Aronosfky's best movie so far, I thought it was still quite fascinating and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you are interested in experimental movies

Knowing how rarely you give movies an 8/10, I'm glad to see mother! be one of them. It's really quite something.

Yeah, I really loved the damned thing. In fact, it is so far my favorite movie released in 2017.
