  1. Rocco's rating of the film Mother of Tears

    Shockingly bad. A complete missed opportunity for Argento to rediscover his roots. Stripping the film of the overheated visual style of the two previous efforts and beefing up the narrative was the absolute wrong way to go. This feels like the work of a different director entirely. Daria Nicolodi’s cameo is damn near insulting.

  4. Merekkio's rating of the film Mother of Tears

  5. Vincent Maël's rating of the film Mother of Tears

    Argento fröhnt nach dem planlosen Krimidurcheinander einer Altherrenperversion, mit chauvinistischen Grundton und stetig steigend sexualisiert, Szene für Szene. Ein trauriger Abschluss, als hätte der Italiener die Lust am Genre verloren.

  6. Renton47's rating of the film Mother of Tears

    It's strange that Argento doesn't just give us what we want and make another psychedelic puzzle horror, especially how easily satiated fans would be at this point. Make no mistake, this film is hilarious and the violence is positively grotesque. But on any rational level this is an awful film. So Argento continues his attack on rationality while we ponder our own limits to nepotism.

  8. Howard Orr's rating of the film Mother of Tears

    The timer lightswitch dial in the apartment block is a great idea: the rest of this film...eh, not so much. Without the visual style, oddly cosy nighttime atmosphere, and of course the frights of his previous films, so much of Argento's art of the past -almost 30!- years is crude, tacky and reeks of "exploitation flick".

  9. Ryuu Baron's rating of the film Mother of Tears

  10. cinemaofdreams's rating of the film Mother of Tears

    Lacking the enigma that made Suspiria above average, but beautifully made until the last 1/2 hour which was overindulgent, somewhat amateurish, anti-climatic, and poorly paced. 3/5

  11. Andrea Rizzo Pinna's rating of the film Mother of Tears

  12. Jorge Mourinha's rating of the film Mother of Tears

    A reasonably satisfying conclusion to the trilogy, with some wonderful set pieces - but not quite vintage.

  13. Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Mother of Tears

    Dario Argento shamelessly continues to exploit the fact that I am a die-hard fan and will generally watch anything featuring the beautiful Asia. Mother of Tears is surely dreadful, especially compared to the masterpiece Suspira and the always mesmerizing Inferno, but I can't say I found it boring. There's a certain kitsch appeal in how utterly ridiculous and misguided the whole thing is...

  14. Paolo Simeone's rating of the film Mother of Tears

    Ciao, qui si riscrive la storia del cinema amiciui. Ho già voglia di rivederlo.

  15. hastapura's rating of the film Mother of Tears

    Remains amusingly inept for a good hour, its one saving grace when considering how utterly stupid and listless Argento's worst can be. His sexual politics have always been questionable, but they were easier to overlook when couched in Technicolor fantasia; here the killings, clumsily shot and artlessly lit, feel confused and hateful. Even Udo Kier looks embarrassed.

  18. nothere's rating of the film Mother of Tears

    The equivalent of cinematic suicide.

  19. Joker's rating of the film Mother of Tears

    Quite weak and disappointing !

  20. Daeron's rating of the film Mother of Tears

    Dario Argento puts a dagger to hearts of his fans.

  21. Simon James Constable's rating of the film Mother of Tears

    Dario Argento needs to stop making films now, it's embarrassing.

  22. Antoine Tremblay's rating of the film Mother of Tears

    Biggest dissapointment in my cinephile life, complete crap from one of the most interesting directors in horror cinema.

  23. Matt Burgess's rating of the film Mother of Tears

    Sadly, pretty much a piece of shit. Argento abandons his artful visual sense and obsessive, dream-like qualities for a dumb-as-fuck script and lazy TV aesthetics. However, taken as a tacky, bizarro spectacle, its hilarious and entertaining and its moments of shocking batshit insanity make it worth slugging through all the lame "Da Vinci Code" plotting.

  24. Hunter Duesing's rating of the film Mother of Tears

    A movie like this could only disappoint, especially given the drop-off in quality in Argento's work as of late. It's not as terrible as some of the movies he's made lately, in fact it's quite watchable. But it doesn't come close to SUSPIRIA or INFERNO.
