Mother! (18)

Drama, Horror, Mystery

A couple's relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence.

The critical consensus

Darren Aronofsky’s latest feature is a turgid surrealist slog, open to being read in many ways, but very heavy going however you approach it.

**(*)(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 06/09/2017

A difficult film and one that's likely to offend in some ways. But as an elliptical, dream-logic infused visual poem, it certainly leaves a searing impression.

****(*)Dan Jolin, Empire Online, 06/09/2017

Aronofsky’s maternal horror is the most out-there studio movie of the year. You won’t believe your eyes.

****(*)James Mottram, Total Film, 06/09/2017

Jennifer Lawrence astonishes in Darren Aronofsky's provocative and infuriating latest.

**(*)(*)(*)Nikki Baughan, The List, 11/09/2017

An ordeal. Scores most definitely don’t apply with this one.

***(*)(*)David Jenkins, Little White Lies, 12/09/2017

Jennifer Lawrence is very good as the paranoid title figure, the screenplay is clever and the craftsmanship is impeccable but this is a gruelling experience that heads off the rails and feels more like personal therapy for director Darren Aronofsky rather than a film for public consumption.

***(*)(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 15/09/2017

Darren Aronofsky’s darkly comic blend of home-invasion nightmare and eco-parable takes some digesting – but it’s worth it.
