In Retrospect: Mother!

You know what? I get it now.

Yeah after Mother broke my mind and left me literally senseless, on a second viewing, it makes more sense. After the bizzare yet genius ending that made me just break down in crazed laughter, and knowing all the major events and oddities of this film, when you watch it again it makes a hell of a lot more sense. When I was walking back from the theater trying to figure out what I just witnessed, I was just throwing ideas to the wind and I said, "So is this movie trying to tell me Javier Bardem is God?" and that was a stab in the dark. But that stab in the dark hit the mark. Now I'm rhyming. This movie is something else man. I do highly suggest if you decide to see this movie, after you are done, read speculation on the movie and what it means. It will all make sense when you do that. But my opinion has changed. It is a good movie with excellent suspense, Jennifer Lawrence as Insaid carries the film and I legit liked her in this movie and Javier Bardem is well, Javier Bardem so I love him, the movie is surreal, metaphorical, genuinely disturbing. And if that sounds like your kind of movie, great! If not, yeah I still get it. I'm glad I saw it again, for I am not one of those people who see a movie once alone, and certainly not a person who says, "I did not get it at all, this was the worst movie." screw that noise. If a film perplexes you multiple viewings are required. Like Blade Runner! Speaking of which, the new one hits video soon so I will no doubt talk about both when the time comes. But until then, judge for yourself and I will see you next time.
