"mother! is not a film for everyone. Many who go in expecting a traditional horror film are bound to leave shaken, outraged and deeply disturbed by just how many buttons it manages to push. Yet, through this blistering vision of humanity in decline, there’s no denying that Aronofsky is at the peak of his powers here, delivering what could be one of the most feverishly demented films to ever emerge from a mainstream studio. Not a single person at the screening I attended left the theater until the end credits rolled out. It’s likely that you won’t either."
"There have been countless rip-offs of the Bourne franchise for years, but if there was ever one specifically engineered for the Trump demographic, it would be American Assassin. As nasty as it is jingoistic, this carbon copy serves as a ringing endorsement to the notion that white men who go against the system will prevail through the power of their egotistical bullshit, restoring order to a broken world. The fact that it happens to be an awfully generic thriller in addition to being fueled by toxic machismo only makes it that much more (ahem) deplorable."
