MOTHER!
2017, Paramount, 121 min, USA, Dir: Darren Aronofsky

A young wife (Jennifer Lawrence) learns a lot of hard truths about her passionate but enigmatic husband (Javier Bardem) when their house is set upon by visitors who may or may not have malicious intentions. Writer-director Darren Aronofsky crafts an ambitious, divisive - and absolutely masterful - exercise in psychological suspense rich in allegory, metaphor and visceral horror that ranks with the best of Roman Polanski and Tobe Hooper. Jennifer Lawrence is fearless and powerful as the heroine through whose eyes we experience all the terror, poignancy, and exhilaration of Aronofsky’s fiercely original vision. Costarring Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer.
