Review of MOTHER -
Director: Darren Aronofsky
Writer: Darren Aronofsky
Staring: Jennifer Lawrence

Pros:
-good cast

-Lawrence's Oscar worthy moving/passionate performance

Cons:
-so uncool to make a film this dark about parenthood, pregnancy and biblical subliminal messages
-puts too much into the kitchen sink
-too experimental
-too sado-masochistic and misogynist
-can't take it seriously, cartoonish at times
