The studio knew what it was getting into when it decided to take a chance on Darren Aronofsky's polarizing new movie.
Good reviews did not help Darren Aronofsky's audacious genre-bending festival hit to reach the right audience: it landed an F Cinemascore.
The rare feat is considered a badge of honor in some circles.
"mother!" is a wild ride, but what's Aronofsky trying to tell us? We have a few ideas.
It was a great year for "The Shape of Water," "mother!", and "Molly's Game." For The Weinstein Co., not so much.
This is not hyperbole: "mother!" has so many jaw-dropping moments you might actually feel sick to your stomach (or just walk out of the theater).
The Oscar-nominated director has made seven features since first breaking out at Sundance in 1998 with "Pi." Here's where they all rank.
Prepare yourself for a nightmare. The trailer for "Rosemary's Baby" is way more terrifying in the style of Darren Aronofsky's "mother!"
The Academy is slow to embrace weirder movies, and it's got two in Guillermo del Toro's fantasy masterpiece and Darren Aronofsky's allegorical shocker.
"mother!" is shrouded in mystery, but nothing about the plot can possibly match the experience of the movie.
