    This will probably, for what it’s worth, wind up with a nasty CinemaScore and could have shaky legs. I think Lawrence and Pfeiffer are the only Oscar plays.

    OSCAR FLASHBACK: Nicholson at the Oscars (1981) – Reds

    Without giving too much away by the time it’s over you’ve kinda forgotten Pfeiffer was even in it. Great as she is this REALLY isn’t a film that’s going down well with The Academy unless all those new member s are total masochists.

    Posted about this in another forum, but the the Academy’s increasingly diverse new membership might appreciate mother! more than it is being predicted. You have the likes of Tom Ford (Nocturnal Animals), Lav Diaz (Norte), Brillante Mendoza (Kinatay), Jordan Peele (Get Out), and Eric Heisserer (Lights Out).

    I think these new diverse members could help out a lot of smaller indie films the Oscars usually would ignore like Ingrid Goes West, Good Time, The Florida Project, Beatriz at Dinner (Salma Hayek!), The Lost City of Z, and especially Get Out, but considering a prestigious writer and director like Darren Aronofsky behind Mother, I think that movie will have to live or die on its own.

    Sounds like one should drop acid before viewing.

    You don’t need to.

    Quite the worst film I’ve seen all year. An absolutely pointless, self indulgent, cacophonous nightmare with a groan inducing ending that beggars belief. It literally gave the man sat next to me a nosebleed.

    The worst time I’ve had at a movie since I suffered an acid flashback in the middle of Se7en and ran out of the theatre screaming.

    There was no flashback or acid necessary this time.

    A monumental clusterfuck.

    LOL. Thanks. It’s been hard locating my dealer from 1966.

    I could see mother! being the Nocturnal Animals of this award season.

    Stupidest film i have seen in years, in a so bad it’s funny kind of way.  Certainly won’t win any Oscars and deserves to win plenty of Razzies.

    From what I’m hearing the only thing that could have made this movie worse was to title it “Darren Aronofsky’s mother!”.

    Ok so I just got back from seeing this and I liked it but it was way over hyped. Lawrence and Pfieffer were the only standouts to me. The ending I actually liked (what that says about me I don’t know lol). I guess I would give it a B. I feel like people are either going to get it or hate it.

    I personally love the film and find it one of the best this year so far but yeah, at this point it’s safe to say it’s not going to get any room at the Oscars. I still say it might snag a tech nod such as sound editing and I’m not ready to rule out a nomination for Pfeiffer either, but even these might be wishful thinking.

    It seems like many were anticipating the performances instead of the film itself, which could be the source for the hate.

    I’m firmly in the camp of “hated it”. It’s really funny when you like the concept of a movie but hate its execution and I genuinely love the idea behind mother but it was eventually a masochistic, on-the-nose, heavy-handed movie and the only performer who may have got out unscathed is Pfeiffer and that’s because she just wasn’t in it enough. Lawrence? I don’t know why she would feel passionately about this role apart from the broad allegory it’s trying to represent. It totally abandons her to an archetype, she’s not a character—and no that’s not the point, the point was to have “characters” represent a broader allegorical story—but just a naive little girl…which is, very strange.

    Doesn’t hold a candle to Natalie Portman’s transformative role in Black Swan, and I’m actually a bigger fan of Lawrence than Portman!
