    mother!

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Aronofsky has never been a favorite or even mildly
    effective director in my book. I hate The Fountain
    & Requiem for a Dream is complete shit.
    So I knew I wasn't going to love this, I just hoped
    I wouldn't regret seeing it and luckily I don't.

    The film definitely comes off like he wrote it

    ★★★★★

    A genre mashup that is now so ingrained in my mind that I am sure the gritty nature of it will only start to burn faster over the next several days. I went blindly into this, aside from skimming some of the other reviews on here, and even though nothing was spoiled I knew I was excited and in for a wild ride. Indeed what an epic adventure into the old west where the air is harsh with malaise and…
