Paramount is #sorrynotsorry about Jennifer Lawrence's 'mother!'

Filmmaker Darren Aronofsky is known for making challenging films, but with his most recent effort mother! But that's exactly why you need to see it.

"Yeah, I would like to have kids one day, but I don't really know my layout of my future, but I definitely have maternal stirrings. A lot of people aren't picking up on all of it, there's lots of little things and Easter Eggs and how things connect, and I think that's the fun of unpacking the movie". One contributing factor to the movie's bottom line is that audiences entirely rejected it and bestowed an F CinemaScore.

Acclaimed director Darren Aronofsky presented this weekend what was, perhaps, his most experimental film, and it is one of the most menacing and cringe-worthy movies of the last decade - a compliment to the director's way of filming. It might start off that way, but it quickly evolves into another beast entirely. Yet it's a daring, dazzling showcase for the talent involved - in other words, the kind of movie a mother could love, if she's the mother of Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, or director Darren Aronofsky. From there, well... things get a bit unhinged.

It's not all hate, though.

The critical reception of the film has been mixed-to-positive, sitting at 68% on review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes. Scott from the New York Times writing, "Don't listen to anyone who natters on about how intense or disturbing this movie is; it's a hoot!" Together they ate up $44 million of the box office, which still left $13 million for Crimson Peak.

CinemaScore ratings can be indicative of a film's success, but aren't always. Audiences, however, trashed the film. In the case of Mother!

Leaving a huge impact on Hollywood at the mere age of 27 is not a piece of cake, but Jennifer Lawrence has been able to do just that.

She said: "I threw the script and was like I can't have this in my house. That they know I represent Mother Earth; Javier, whose character is a poet, represents a form of God, a creator; Michelle Pfeiffer is an Eve to Ed Harris's Adam, there's Cain and Abel and the setting sometimes resembles the Garden of Eden".

In that way, Aronofsky's film has already succeeded.

Warning: Those of you that haven't seen "mother!" shouldn't read ahead, as the comments are packed full of SPOILERS. It's as grotesque and messed up as you think.
