The first time I watched the movie, or rather parts of it, must have been in the early 2000s when I visited some relatives for Christmas and my cousin and I got bored and when we turned on the TV the ship just started to sink, which was pretty scary back then.

  • mother!

    mother!

    ½

    At first I thought about writing BULLSHIT a hundred times but then I realised that I'm way too angry to not talk about Mother!.

    In hindsight that damn exclamation mark and the way it appeared on screen should have been a warning sign. The way the title - and with it the exclamation mark is sitting there between two of the worst moments of the movie bothers me even more now than I did while watching it. Throughout the movie…
