Your Quick & Simple Review: mother!

mother!: A young woman’s (Jennifer Lawrence) tranquil life with her husband (Javier Bardem) at their remote country home is tested when uninvited guests arrive.

All I had hoped for before I screened this film was that it just be good.  The trailer made it look like it would be something I would enjoy, so that’s all I wanted.  Now that I’ve seen it, I can actually say it was definitely more than just good.  It was “What The F***?” Good.

Personally, I hesitate to call this one a horror film, because I really didn’t see it that way.  I think psychological thriller is a much better way for me to describe it.  My eyes were glued to the screen and I was completely involved with every aspect of this one.  Jennifer, who always gives an outstanding performance, really sold me her part.  Javier, just really does “crazy” well.  And even though Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer were a small part of this one, they, as the uninvited guest, set tone for how crazy this one was about to get.

So did I like this one?  Oh Yeah, I did.  And I think if you’re looking for something to see this weekend that will really have you talking about it when it’s over, this is it for sure.  Making this one A Must See Movie.
