    mother!

    ★★★★

    Looking for one of those movies that sticks with you long after the credits have rolled? Look no further than mother!

    I will warn you, I'd most typically class the film as a Marmite (love it or hate it) situation – I'm the latter.

    Spike Jonze's sci-fi romance depicts Joaquin Phoenix as reserved writer Theodore, who buys a highly sophisticated Operating System, forming a relationship with it.

    Beautifully and subtly filmed, the movie poses a million questions about human interaction in general, the roles and methods of communication, and the amelioration or the damaging qualities technology has on society nowadays.
