mother!, directed by the acclaimed Darren Aronofsky (Requiem for a Dream, Black Swan), has been deemed one of the most “divisive” films of the year- leaving audiences mesmerized, perplexed, and provoked. This psychological thriller revolves around a married couple, portrayed by Javier Bardem (a poet struggling with writer’s block) and Jennifer Lawrence (tending to the renovations of their home), as they cope with bizarre and disruptive unwanted guests. With symbolism “packed like a Russian nesting doll” (Ryzik, 2017), this film covers Jungian topics including archetypes and collective unconscious, among many others. While the director hopes that audiences view the film with minimal awareness of the plot and themes- this discussion should prove to be lively and enriching whether previously viewed or entering blind.
