Huey McEvoy's rating of the film Mother!

With its heavy lashings of bible-black wit, it defiantly earns its place in the pantheon of classic alegorical psychodramas: Repulsion, Rosemary's Baby, The Wicker Man, Don't Look Now, Eraserhead, Antichrist, Under the Skin etc. The biblical and environmental metaphors may be more overt, but for me it was interesting to view the events as a manifestation of her deepest fears as a woman, wife, daughter and mother.
