Mother! ):

Mother has to be one of the most pointless movies I've ever seen. It has some good actors and a very promising beginning, but then, the promise isn't kept. It's just a series of vapid horror film scenes that don't add up to anything. I forced myself to watch it to the end and am promising myself never to make that decision again. Warning to all: There's no brilliant climactic close that will compensate you for the two lost hours of your life.
