    Darren Aronofsky is one of America's finest filmmaking talents, unbothered by box office receipts and unrestrained in vision. His works seek to defy modern sensibilities and put audiences on the defense, in a way that is so antagonistic in approach and horrific in its repercussions. MOTHER! is no different from his other works, but it's easily the least concise - and yet, the most profound - film he's made yet.
