Mother! Just Screened, Here's Some Early Reactions!
Posted 2017/09/03 2048 0
Seems like the movie will be the most controversial one of the year!
The reactions come from Anthony Bourdain and Mylo Carbia, who attended a private screening held for Aronofsky’s friends and family. Bourdain made headlines for tweeting negatively about Edgar Wright’s “Baby Driver” earlier this year, but it looks like he feels just the opposite about “mother!” The chef and television personality calls the film “dark,” “brilliant,” and a “good poke in [the] eye to convention.” But most enticing is this bit from his reaction: “[It] will upset the fuck out of people.”
Mylo Carbia had loads to say about it and said mother! is the most controversial movie since A Clockwork Orange, which is pretty high praise indeed.
"No paparazzi. Top secret location," she wrote on Twitter. "It was a life-changing experience.
"Folks, no words can describe this cinematic masterpiece.
"I can only say it's nothing like you've ever seen before. It pushes the envelope in ways you can't even imagine...It's crazy, gorgeous, violent, powerful...And it will be the most controversial movie since A CLOCKWORK ORANGE, sure to be studied in film school for decades to come."
If what they say is true, it certainly looks like fans of horror films will have an enjoyable September. Between the remake of Stephen King’s It and now the psychological horror that Aronofsky’s mother! apparently offers, movie goers should have some dark and unsettling films to check out heading into the Halloween season.
“mother!” stars Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem as a couple whose relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence. Director Darren Aronofsky has been keeping plot details close to his chest to make audiences want to see it more, though has revealed it is a pretty intense experience. Michelle Pfeiffer and Ed Harris co-star. The film has been shrouded in secrecy, and audiences will finally get to see what Aronofsky has in store when the film opens September 15.
