Aronofsky’s ‘mother!’ and the psychological horror of women’s domesticity

TwitterFacebook

Warning: Spoilers for mother! ahead.

mother! isn’t just the name of the most WTF movie in theaters right now — it’s also what critics are cursing under their breath (followed by a modifier rhyming with “trucker”) trying to understand what the hell Darren Aronofsky’s even saying with his latest film.

– It’s actually a cautionary tale against climate change! 

– It’s actually just a shitty movie! 

– It’s actually just pop culture’s most intense Rorschach test! Read more…

Periods are normal, but kids pointing them out in their sketches is something else.

“Julian drew a family portrait. I said ‘What’s that red bit on me?’ And he replied, real casual, ‘That’s your period.'”
