An exercise in psychological horror, 'mother!' is no family film

 • 3½ stars out of four •

Cavlin Wilson / St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“mother!” is just the sort of exercise in psychological horror that you’d expect from writer-director Darren Aronofsky, whose most famous and commercially successful film is “Black Swan.” Clearly, Aronofsky aims for arthouse respect as well as box-office appeal, and with his latest film he’s likely to achieve qualified success on both counts.

Lawrence and Bardem are on board with the director’s go-for-it sensibility, turning in courageous and committed performances that deftly negotiate the shifting phantasmagorical terrain. And Pfeiffer, Harris and the Gleesons make the most of their screen time.

Naysayers will no doubt argue that “mother!” is an incomprehensible mess. But as sheer visceral filmmaking, it’s a must-see. If you’re looking for meaning, read a book.
