mother! UHD Review



Darren Aronofsky’s mother! may have been one of the most divisive films of 2017, receiving a rare “F” rating from Cinemascore. Picture and sound are great on the 4K UHD Blu-ray release.

I suspect that HDR and WCG will be the biggest benefits to this release, as 16mm resolution tops out at 2K at best.

I am SO glad I didn't have to review this!

(Now for a mini-review): For all of its arresting visuals and astounding sound design (and both are really superb), its narrative thrust of masochistic misogyny is so over the top that it was hard to not become irritated at its tiresome implacability. OK, so from this we're supposed to understand that he's celebrating women as givers, nurturers, and caretakers to their undeserving men who are selfish takers and users and unappreciative of all their women go through for them by having poor Jennifer Lawrence be used as a figurative and literal punching bag for two hours? I get his drift, but it's not a movie I ever need to see again.
