Where Venus was content to traverse similar terrain by coasting on the late-career charm of Peter O’Toole, The Mother finds Michell & Kureishi displaying the guts to focus on a far less charismatic figure: May is not only comparatively introverted (think Brigitte Mira in Fassbinder’s Ali: Fear Eats the Soul), but, in many respects, blatantly unlikeable. And Michell stages much of the drama in unsparing, extended-take long shots, which works to suck the sensationalism out of Kureishi’s material.
