Just got out of an afternoon showing of Darren Aronofsky's "Mother!" Only about 10 people in the entire audience (but then it's rather overbooked in Austin, showing at at least a dozen theaters).
Aronofsky has said the film is about the environmental rape of Mother Earth. All the critics are also saying it's a Rorschach test of the viewer. OK, so here's what I saw in it: (1) Jesus dying for the sins of humanity, and (2) the inside of Sylvia Plath's head (I kept thinking of the story of her getting overly upset when Ted Hughes asked their Ouija board whether or not he'd be famous---she saw it as an extremely bad omen that the world would take him away from her...as it did).
Yes, I feel like I've been through the wringer after watching (as with "Pi," "Requiem for a Dream," "The Wrestler," and "Black Swan"), mainly emotionally but also intellectually. You certainly know what you're getting with him.
