Mother!, The Mountain Between Us and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

View Chris Kavan's Profile

Now that the long nation nightmare of the sagging box office is sure to be behind us, thanks to the effort of a psychotic shape-shifting, child-murdering clown, we can turn our attention back to new movies. Darren Aronofsky is always a great choice when you want your movie to be dark and twisted, even if it stars Jennifer Lawrence. Meanwhile, Kate Winslet and Idris Elba manage to survive a plane crash - but, don't worry, things are going to get even more dangerous for them when they have to figure out how to survive a treacherous journey down a frigid mountain. And that's your taste for this week, a tasty bite-sized morsel, but good enough to savor none-the-less.

I am a bit proponent of Darren Aronofsky. Pi, Requiem for a Dream, Black Swan - all movies that will mess you up. While he has done more commercial fare (like Noah), even that had rock-throwing weirdness in it. It looks like Mother! is certainly going to join his list of terrifying visions. Mother! seems to be more pure horror than the more psychological Black Swan or the ravages of drugs in Requiem for a Dream. The films stars Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem as a couple who finds more then their relationship tested with the arrival of Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer. Bardem plays a narcissistic celebrity author of feel-good poetry who is trying to come to grips with the death of his first wife. Lawrence is simply trying to fix up their remote countryside estate - and mend her husband in the process. But when Harris arrives, it begins a decent in to paranoia and fever-dream, in which Lawrence is constantly on the receiving end of all the bad will. Even with the trailers, it's hard to discern just what is going on - cult? hallucination? possession? In any case, it doesn't seem like things are going to end well. While It (the film) has been on my horror radar for a long time, Mother! is quietly sneaking up on the list - if only because I really like Aronofsky and it will be great to see Lawrence get royally freaked out. No surprise, this is rated R for strong disturbing violent content, some sexuality, nudity and language.

The other big film this week is The Mountain Between Us. The film has Kate Winslet and Idris Elba as two strangers on the same small plane that crash lands on a remote mountain. Surviving this ordeal is just the first step, as they soon realize that with no help coming, the only way they are going to survive is to trek down the mountain and make it through the wilderness on their own. This is the kind of film that is going to rely entirely on how the two leads perform together, in such grueling conditions. But, hell, if Tom Hanks can act opposite a volleyball and be compelling, these two should have no problem making you care about their survival. I still bet one of them dies in the end. Rated PG-13 for a scene of sexuality, peril, injury images, and brief strong language.
