Mother! (2017, USA, Dir. Darren Aronofsky, 121 mins, 18)

Director: Darren Aronofsky ● Starring: Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer. 

Aronofsky’s much hyped and debated art-horror meditation on what it means for a mother to give everything in the pursuit of familial bliss is a thrilling, phantasmagorical nightmare. Fluent in the horrors and hilarity of dream logic, the Black Swan auteur hauls his audience up a Jacob’s Ladder of domestic anxieties laden with heavenly allusions, laying scenes over one another with all the escalating tension and irrationality of a panic attack. Whatever your ultimate verdict – masterpiece or allegorical misstep – this combination of Requiem for a Dream’s psychological terrors and Noah’s Biblical tone is among the most vital, not-to-be-missed movies of recent years.

With one showing at 7.30pm ONLY.
