In the latest film from Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan, Requiem for a Dream), a couple's relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence.

A- "mother! begins as a slow burn and builds toward a furious blaze. Awash in both religious and contemporary political imagery, Darren Aronofsky’s allusive film opens itself to a number of allegorical readings, but it also works as a straight-ahead head rush. Not just another baroquely orchestrated big-screen freak-out in the vein of Black Swan (though it is very much that), the film touches on themes that — if too hazily figurative to be in any way autobiographical — at least tread on factors in the director’s own life." — Ben Croll, IndieWire

★★★★★ "In his oblique director’s statement, Aronofsky references war, famine, climate change and the ongoing refugee crisis – but in a way that frames them less as inspirations than the raw materials in a kind of apocalyptic chemistry experiment. Combine the lot, shake furiously, stand well back, and mother! comes seething out, like toxic froth." — Robbie Collin, The Telegraph
