Mommy ★★★½

63/78 of Keeping Up with the Boxes: January-February 2018

Today was a long day, with the highlight being a university exam that required a lot of effort. So, of all the films I decided to watch, Mommy wasn't the smartest choice. I liked it... but didn't love it. Maybe it's my tired mind speaking, or maybe it's the film itself that doesn't resonate with me, I don't know. Objectively, it's a very emotional movie in its execution, performances, and story. I can't deny that the peculiar use of aspect ratio is interesting at first, mind-blowing later, but gimmicky in the end (not necessarily a bad thing).

It's a good movie, and one that will probably grow on me. This is more one of those "Wrong time, wrong place" viewing experiences. I'll come back to it in the future.
