Watch Online : Mother!
A couple’s relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence.
Films like Mother! have a tremendous negative effect on our psychological and spiritual level. But if you are an evolved person, and not your everyday unconscious zombie, you will avoid it. If you thrive on bombarding your consciousness with horrific sounds and images, then run to watch this film, it will continue to lower your consciousness level and make you numb in body, mind and spirit.
While I applaud the acting, this film takes you on a horrific psychedelic journey. You want to laugh at the absurd, and vomit through the rest. The scenes become quite convoluted, disgusting and without depth, as if the story was written in a hurry. If you are one that does not believe that our thoughts and feelings create our tomorrows, then enjoy this film and poison your consciousness.
“We must try to find a way to forgive them all”, says the Javier character in the film. This offered a glimmer of hope, but nah the writer wants you to believe that if there’s no forgiveness, then they get to do it all over again, an infinite loop of misery. Speaking of misery, as I was watching the film, I wondered if the writer/director harbored a great deal of sorrow inside. Clearly this man feels that the core of everyone in this world is evil. Which is only a reflection of what is inside of himself and perhaps the people who funded this film. You become what you focus on. What a waste of good talent.
As the movie goes on, these violations against the home and Lawrence get increasingly bizarre and excessive. They get laid on so thick that, even if you have figured out the analogy by the midway point of the movie and enjoy the way the movie is getting it’s point across, the sheer madness that transpires in the second half of the film is likely to sour you on the overkill applied to the message.
It becomes fairly apparent that the house and Lawrence’s character from which the movie is titled represent our planet. Bardem’s character represents a creator/God (in credits, his character is simply known as ‘Him’). Harris and Pfeiffer, the original, invasive guests, are the original Man & Woman (Adam & Eve), and from there, a lot of the plot initially descends from biblical references and then into His desire to provide for his followers and to be adored by them, ignorant of how detrimental they are to the house and Mother.
At the very end, the house becomes overpopulated with people who are both zealots and warmongers who descend into utter ‘WTF’ madness while they destroy the home, murder the couple’s child, and force Mother to burn down the home she so painstakingly created, killing everyone inside it. After the fire, He carries her out, and recreates the home with a new Mother! movie.
