Darren Aronofsky has a track record of making difficult and/or disturbing films but with "Mother!", he has really outdone himself. A middle-aged poet (Javier Bardem) and his young wife (Jennifer Lawrence) receive an unexpected visitor at their home. What follows is a careening madhouse with very little respite and frequently difficult to watch. But what a film, the best thing I've seen in 2017!
