mother! is pure US Black Metal in style, message, and delivery... and Black Metal is just not very subtle.
But to be fair, I really hated organized religion before I hit play.
Aronofsky's Watchmen would have been perfect, especially given how crushing The Fountain wound up being, but we'll never get to have that OR his Wolverine.
Still, the somewhat cheesy Zack Snyder version we have is like 95% faithful to Alan Moore's writing and even more so to Dave Gibbons' art, making it a total gem in an otherwise weak genre, falling second only to The Crow.
