Pretty much sums up the dullness, boredom and monotony in my own life.
Darren Aronofsky is a mad genius and mother! is a maddening piece of original filmmaking that DEMANDS to be seen. This is a film that nags at you constantly with it's escalating tension, it doesn't give you any space to breath and you can't even turn your eyes away because of how visceral, claustrophobic and 'in-your-face' the whole thing is. But as oppressive as it is (and it is pretty oppressive), it's also quite impressive and feels much like a nightmarish fever dream for the majority of it's run-time.
Only Jim Jarmusch could make a film where so little happens yet as the viewer you are never bored and content with simply letting it pass by.
It's a film of minor pleasures that feels abundantly full. It's also tender, moving and lyrical with a zen-like universality to it and makes you reflect on and appreciate the little things in life. And the fact that it feels so authentic, laid-back and relaxed only adds to the serene pleasure of watching it.
I never wanted it to end.
