    I lost it when they threw her on the ground.

    When I say I lost it, I'm not talking about the losing it where tears just come bursting out. Not the losing it where you tuck your head into your knees because you just can't handle standing the sight of anything anymore. I'm talking about the losing it where you feel like everything you've just experienced was nothing more than a bad dream. That nothing this disgusting could ever be…

    the trailer for the new Flatliners movie played before this and I had a good laugh at that silliness but I guess the joke was on me because who's flatlining now bitch!!!!!

    this movie is a gift to the world. a true mitzvah. "a pure good," to quote Ben Kingsley in Schindler's List (as I do on the regular).

    James Franco's performance as Tommy Wiseau is so good that Daniel Day-Lewis had to retire out of shame. i look forwards to pushing him for major acting awards all season long.

    i have *no* idea how this will play for those who are unfamiliar with THE ROOM, but for me… this was heaven.

    Intense, intensely pleased with itself, and intensely dumb. So, a Darren Aronofsky movie.

    fuck this fucking disgusting piece of shit. this technical masterpiece and its gross 3rd act can go kill itself. I have never been so fucking angry at a fucking movie in my entire life, I genuinely cannot rate this. I love the first two acts SO SO MUCH but the last 30 minutes made me sob out of pure anger and devastation. being a female and watching this excuse for "feminism" (or whatever this was trying to be) was absolutely…

    Sample of the comments I heard from other members of my audience on their way out of the theater:

    -“Dude, I can’t even.”
    -“SO weird!”
    -“Michelle Pfeiffer was EVERYTHING!”
    -“Uh... like, what was that?”
    -“Was it a Bible thing or something?”

    Pretty much sums it up!

    Mother!, a movie which boldly states (check that exclamation point!) that even God can't shackle his wife into a state of constant submissiveness, for it is in her nature to intrude on his processes and successes and rights as a man. How dare she! Truly an abomination. It isn't merely that it's stupid: I've seen plenty of sublime excursions into such a realm. No no, it's that Darren Aronofsky never capitalizes on the pretentiousness of his own doing. It's…

    Las Vegas Weekly review is relatively spoiler-free, so I'll leave it on its own for now, sans warning, and address my preferred, somewhat unique interpretation in a separate entry following a second viewing (coming soon, as who knows how long this weaponized audience repellent will survive in theaters). I don't love mother! for its Deep Meaning, though. I love mother! for its simulation of a rollercoaster that ratchets you uphill for miles, until the lack of oxygen makes you…

    It’s necessary to preface this with the fact that I am (or, was) a huge Aronofsky fan. He’s ingenious, and sophisticated and he has this distinct style to his films. Plus, his symbolism and metaphors have always struck a perfectly balanced note in the past. Having loved Black Swan and The Fountain, I’ve been super stoked for mother!. It all seemed right: the concept, the cast, the posters. Everything. The spectacle leading up to its various premieres added to my…
