Not yet, but I definitely will now! That Darren Aronofsky seems like someone I need to keep my eye on.

After reading about this movie, I see one thing that bothers me: violence - too much of it. I see a lot of movies that seem to be following 'video' games in using endless and extreme violence in order to somehow gratify their viewers, like, "Doctor Strange," and other superhero movies. I just saw, "Tomorrowland," and found it to be a wistful movie strangely half-full of violence. I personally don't see the need for this, and feel it is more than a waste of time and money. Right? I mean, "Tomorrowland," was DISNEY - eeeeg!

Other than this, which I can tolerate just fine, I think I definitely must see, "mother!" - thanks!

So, this:

I looked up, "mother!" on Wiki, and got a general page about mother/s. The origin of the word, "mother," interested me - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mother#Etymology.

So, then I searched for more, and found that there was not just close similarities in Gaelic and continental Indian language, but also between Gaelic and Algonquin. This agrees with my observations of the similarities between NW European and Algonquin architecture, as well as society.

I then found this little site (from California) which then had a page about a college near to me, featuring a professor who has been making commentaries on my local NPR station(!), and who turns out to have come from the same HS as me - so - It's a small world after all!

Aronofsky is a genius. I think a lot of people forget that movies are an art form. Sure, I love a mindless romantic comedy myself. But, it's work like Aronofskys that reminds me of how visceral an art form movie making can be.

The violence doesn't bother me, although it is quite intense and hard to watch at some points in mother!, but the whole film is an allegory for the creation of humankind and the enivitable destruction of Mother Earth because of, so the movie without violence would not make a lick of sense.

I will keep my eye on Aronofsky. I agree with your comment. I think that there needs to be more art-form movies, in addition to the mass appeal movies, which have forgotten that they are an art-form...

Violence usually doesn't bother me emotionally, so much as mentally. It's like too much CGI - not necessary to the movie or to life or to kids... However, if violence is integral to the reality of the movie, fine.

Mother sounds like a great allegory. By the time I got to it though it was gone.

last night, I saw, the Truman Show, which I thought to be a, "metaphysical allegory," in line w/ other Jim Carey movies. It doesn't really fit into "sci-fi" or "dystopian." I am thinking that this term might be a useful new label...
