    mother!

    ★★

    Well, that was probably the funniest comedy I have seen all year.

    But seriously, it's probably the most pretentious movie dealing with pretentiousness. I obviously liked the craft and the tight tension at the beginning that is carried by Lawrence's reaction shots and tied to her perspective, but man... there is nothing in this movie that will bubble up in the next days after watching it, nothing to process due to the obvious allegoric nature of the film.
