mother! ★★★★

"Are you ready?" Darren asked, looking at me as he adjusted the tourniquet on my arm. I nodded silently, not knowing what to expect. He picked up a syringe and held it up to the light. I caught a glimpse of a sticker on the syringe: SYMBOLISM, it read. While it wasn't Darren's first time doing this, I had a good feeling tonight would be the night I overdose.

By the time Mother! reached its climax, people were leaving my theatre BY THE MINUTE. A tough watch and definitely NOT for everyone but I believe Aronofsky crafted something brilliant and batshit crazy. Also, Jennifer Lawrence was in top form (don't @ me)
